Tonight, the eighth and final season of Fear the Walking Dead
premieres on AMC. After Madison (Kim Dickens) and Morgan (Lennie James)’s attempted rescue of Baby Mo didn’t go as planned, they and the other characters are brought to the island and living under the rules of PADRE.
Recently, cast members Jenna Elfman, who plays June, Christine Evangelista, who plays Sherry, and Karen David, who plays Grace, talked to the press about the upcoming final season, where SciFi Vision asked about how their characters’ journeys surprised them through the series. For all three of them, it was the characters’ reactions to the pain and hardships they’d faced.
“For me, I think I was most surprised at the courage that would burst out of her,” Elfman told the site, “this bravery and wild courage from so many moments, that she would spring forward out of all of this pain into very strong swings of integrity and courage, or even lashing out at different times…I think it was always like a good corollary to the pain when you lose a child and what that does to you, and the efforts at not being a victim, the thrust [of] trying to pull yourself outward and be more dangerous to your environment than your environment has imploded you into your own health. So, those sort of push and pulls from the pain and back into the world always stimulated and surprised me, and I was always pleasantly surprised.”
