Is Eugene a guy who can really be trusted on “The Walking Dead“? This is something that we imagine many of the characters are going to be asking themselves on the show in the weeks ahead; as a matter of fact, we are already questioning whether or not this guy really knows the way to stop the zombie outbreak.
So what does the man behind the role think? Speaking in a new interview with The Hollywood Reporter, the actor behind the role ( Josh McDermitt) shared a few of his own thoughts about how Eugene operates, and how he is going to be very intimidated by anyone who tries to start questioning just what he could be up to:
“We’re introduced to these characters as they’re in the middle of their mission. They’ve been driving halfway across the country to get Eugene to D.C. and I don’t think they’re going to stop. It’s going to take a lot for them to not make their way to D.C. Eugene is always the smartest guy in the room, but he also doesn’t want a lot of people in that room because you never know who could be smarter. And when people start asking questions, then maybe some of the things that Eugene has been saying start to unravel a bit. So it’s going to be interesting to see how Eugene is able to keep the group on the road and away from other people so people don’t start asking questions. Ultimately, people will find out the truth.”
Given that he is a series regular, odds are you will be seeing quite a bit of this character moving forward. The same goes for Michael Cudlitz, who was introduced this week as an Abraham who was very similar to the one that we have come to know well from the comics.
