Seth Gilliam doesn’t think he would want to live in a post-apocalyptic world
- “TWD” star Seth Gilliam says he doesn’t think he would want to live in a real post-apocalyptic world.
- Gilliam survived on “The Walking Dead” for six seasons as father Gabriel.
- Gilliam told Insider he’s not sure it’s worth it.
If a zombie apocalypse were to happen tomorrow, Seth Gilliam said it’s not something he would want to tackle head-on like his character from “The Walking Dead”.
“I don’t know if I would want to live in a post-apocalyptic world,” Gilliam told Insider when asked what he would do and where he would go. “It sounds like too much everyday conflict, you know, too of difficulties. “
In AMC’s long-running drama, Gilliam’s character Gabriel has become one of the New World’s most formidable survivors. Over the course of six seasons, Father Gabriel went from a cowardly priest to a willful leader who would put his life in danger for his people.
He’s become such an asset that Gilliam is hoping Father Gabriel will become the “last man standing” on “TWD” by the end of his final season next year.
Although Gilliam does not see himself in a world overrun by zombies, the actor ultimately decided that he probably wouldn’t venture far if the end of the world came by saying, “I would probably dream of being home with my family. . “
“My weapons of choice would be blades of all kinds because you run out of bullets at some point or you would draw too much attention to shooting a weapon,” he added. “So I think it should be silent killers, like throwing knives or something or poison darts.”
Gilliam’s initial response stood out from those of other “Walking Dead” stars. Insider has asked in the past to share his survival plans for a true zombie apocalypse.
Ryan Hurst told us he would try the Whisperer Method by blending in with the dead, just like his character, Beta.
Showrunner Angela Kang told us she probably won’t make it even if she has an ax from former “TWD” star Andrew Lincoln.
The main difference is that we asked the majority of the cast and crew for their pre-pandemic apocalypse plans.
When we reported it to Gilliam and asked if it maybe made him think about the world differently, he said, “Yes. The pandemic has been extremely isolating and I think I need more. human contacts and connections. “
“I’m not sure that a world beyond – not the spectacle – but a world beyond, the constraints and the structure of society would be worth it,” he said. “I just don’t know.”
