Tonight, AMC premieres the seventh season of its series Fear the Walking Dead
. At the end of last season, cult leader Teddy (John Glover), set off a nuclear bomb that destroyed everything in the area, leaving everyone to run to safety underground. Morgan, played by Lennie James, and Grace, played by Karen David, ran into the submarine with a murder-suicide pact, but changed their minds upon finding Baby Mo.
During a recent roundtable interview, James and David talked to SciFi Vision about what scenes they have found the most fun. David said that watching James during his fight scenes is a joy. “He does them so well, and just even watching him practice with our amazing stunt team, some of those fun bits, they've been great, and certainly in “Six Hours,” 702, [he] had some kickass moments there.
James enjoys doing those kinds of scenes, but others as well. “On one level, it's an impossible question for me to answer, because Morgan has been on such a ride as a character. He's had so many different incarnations and so many different encounters. The moments of joy and the moments of fun are different and varied and are at different times.”
The actor reminisced about working with Melissa McBride, who plays Carol on the flagship series. “I remember sitting on a log in the woods with Melissa after we were doing a scene and just thinking, ‘I don't know that there's anywhere else I'd rather be at this particular moment in time and doing anything else,’ and that was a huge amount of fun.”
