|Q&A – IronE Singleton (T-Dog)
Actor IronE Singleton (T-Dog on AMC’s The Walking Dead) describes the mysterious call that portended his character’s fate and mulls the possibility of T-Dog resurrecting as a zombie rapper.Q: T-Dog’s walker kill count this year seemed a lot higher than in previous seasons. Was that a welcome shift?
A: The first episode, I got enough kills to last for the next four seasons. People were always asking, “T-Dog, how many walkers are you going to take out?” Before, when I didn’t have any, I would tell people “I have about 500 kills — off-screen.” Like all those times the camera moves, he was taking out walkers. But this season I got enough to make up for the first two!
Q: As one of the Atlanta natives on the show, did you doing anything to help welcome the cast back to your city?
A: I had a screening with people here at the house. We had 150 people here, so you know I was excited. My wife did a terrific job of putting things together — she handles all of that stuff. My job was just to post when they got here and do my Walking Dead song.
Q: Walking Dead song?
A: Have you heard it? It’s my version of what a zombie would talk about if a zombie could talk. I’m rapping. And the beat is so hot!
Q: How did you learn that this season would be T-Dog’s last?
