"It’s a funny thing, leadership. I’ve learned from playing Rick that the way that Rick leads is something that I try to emulate. He shows, he doesn’t teach. He’s one of those people who would never ask you to do something he wouldn’t do himself. I think that’s the way that I try to be when I’m on set. It’s just such a neat way of doing things—I mean, I don’t respond well to someone telling me what to do. In that way I think Rick is very smart, it’s rare that he will call someone out. He doesn’t mean to, because he’s the first guy in battle. He’s always actively stepping up and saying, “I’ll do it. Let’s get on with it.” And I think that’s very much the attitude that I have toward filming. “Let’s get on set, let’s go, let’s have some fun.” I suppose that when I’m not working, I’m a much quieter human being, I’m a much more private guy. I just kind of plant trees, mess around with the family. [TDB: Aw, like Farmer Rick.] I’m Farmer Rick, yeah, it’s very unimaginative, the writing for those scenes. “What do you do?” I just step back, I farm. “Okay, you’re farming.” I should say that I surf in Barbados, just to see what happens in Season 5."

The walking dead, Rick is my fave!
