“So when I actually showed up to the first day of work, essentially, all the information that I had to use was the information that was given in that first episode where I first appeared.”
“I went back and analysed the character of Dante in the source material, and I really did feel that I had quite an established grasp on who this person was.”
However, after revealing his confidence in the character to director Greg Nicotero, he was pulled or a chat.
Juan added: “And he goes, ‘Yeah… why don’t you step off set for a second, take a five-minute walk with me?’ And he revealed the general arc of what the character was, and he revealed all of the ulterior motives of the character, and really the true face of who this person was, in about a ten-minute pep talk on the streets of Alexandria. It was fantastic.”
The Walking Dead season 10 continues Sunday on AMC and Monday on Fox UK.
