Mike Gencarelli: How did you get involved with the show “The Walking Dead”?
Anthony Guajardo: I received a phone call from my agent one day and she told me that I had an audition for a project called “The Walking Dead 104.” I ended up auditioning for “Felipe,” “Jorge” and “Miguel.” When I found out later that I booked the job I totally FREAKED out. My mom started crying and I came pretty close myself.

MG: What was the coolest part of working on the show? Are you a zombie fan?
AG: The coolest part about being on the show was just being on set, I have a deep love for the job and when i am on set i feel like there isn’t anything in the world can bring me down. My parents and I are pretty good zombie fans, we have a cool mini collection of school zombie films including the original “Night of the Living Dead” and “Zombieland”.

MG: Where you a fan of the comic series prior to working on the show?
AG: Sadly I was not, but you can bet i am now! ha ha I love all of the characters and the realism of each character on the show.

MG: How long did it take to shoot your episode “Vatos”?
AG: I was in Atlanta for 10 days, but i believe i was on set for about four awesome days!

MG: Was the weather difficult to work in during the summer in Atlanta?
AG: A bit. The main problem was that it would randomly rain a few times throughout the day and we’d have dive under umbrellas to wait it out. But that wasn’t so bad as compared to the “problems” they had filming with the heat on the roof.

MG: What are you planning for next?
AG: I’m not totally sure, hopefully I’ll be back on “The Walking Dead”. I’m about to start a webisode with some acting buddies of mine, we’re going to call it “The B.A.D Revue.” We are going to do some skits, talk about world issues, and answer viewers’ questions.
