Actor known as one of the Scavengers in the AMC Series The Walking

Thank you Jerry for your spontaneous commitment for the Fans of and

How did you get your role  in The Walking Dead as a
member of the Scavengers?
  I submitted for a couple of years for different casting calls for the show and was finally cast. 

Jerry ,  did you watch the show or read the graphic novel, prior to
your casting to The Walking Dead?
I have been watching the show since the first episode, but never read the comics. My wife has read them though. 

Working with Pollyanna McIntosh or one of the Maincast Members will be
a dream for every
TWD Fan, what can you say about working with some of this guys?
Working on set with the cast is like working with family. Everyone becomes really close. While at Walkerstalker Con in Atlanta, cast members would say "Hey Jerry" as I walked by.  Pollyanna is a great "boss" to work with. Really down to earth and sweet. Andrew Lincoln is also great to work with. When we had scenes together he would shake my hand.

How much has the series The Walking Dead influenced your life? Can you
go outside unrecognized ?
Every once and a while I get recognized and asked to sign an autograph. 

What was the best thing or the funniest moment about working on The
Walking Dead?Is there something special you can share with us?

The best thing about working on the show is all the great friends I have made from other scavengers, down to assistant directors. The funniest thing on set is seeing and hearing Andrew Lincoln singing before shooting. 

Are you currently working on anything interesting Movie or Series
outside "The Walking Dead" that
you can reveal?
  Not at this time.

Jerry , you are not only and Actor , you also a member of the Band
"Green Jelly" thats right?
I am one of the bassists for the band Green Jelly

Is there anything else you would like to let The Walking Dead Fans and
your Green Jelly fans know?
I just want to thank all the fans for watching the show, you never know how I might pop up in there next time. And for the Green Jelly fans, keep on supporting the band.

Thank you very much for your time and all the best for the future and
maybe see you someday in Germany.
