Hi Everyone!! CosmoMom Rachael here and I am so incredibly excited to share something with you all! WSC Atlanta was such an important event in my life, for so many reasons. I met my SQUAWKING DEAD co-hosts and made new "Framily" members. Among those I spent time with was an individual that made me sit up and really take a new look at my favorite show.

We see them every episode - probably in passing, maybe a side glance to let us know something is up. Just as important to the story line and the depth of any show are the background actors. I had the absolute pleasure of sitting down and getting to ask some questions to our very own Jimmy McAfee (TWD actor). You'll remember him from Episode 10.03 "Ghosts". He was alongside our group as they met Alpha at the border, just before Carol attempted her kill shot (which was interrupted by Michonne).

I met Jimmy right on the convention center floor and, if you ask me, we became instant friends. That seems to be a common thread throughout #TWDFamily: meeting anyone from the cast is like reuniting with a family member you haven't seen in a while. Everyone I have had the honor of meeting has been nothing but humble and grateful to the fans for their love and support. Jimmy lands squarely in this category, as well: in fact, once he learned I was part of a podcast it was his idea to offer me an interview. CAN YOU BELIEVE THAT?? Well, it's true! I had to contain my excitement, since we were amidst other cast & crew members: I didn't want to come off as a crazy person. If you know me, you'd understand that this is actually the truth. Keeping up appearances, I took a deep breath, my eyes probably popping out of my head in shock, and muttered out a meek "Oh my gosh, that would be amazing!!"

Jimmy was a man of his word: I reached out to him several weeks later and, without question, he was on board! With patience and editing magic, we bring you this interview! I hope some questions you've always had about acting/background acting were answered.

I can't thank Jimmy enough for making this happen! It was so incredibly fun to be apart of this and bring it you, the fans!!!
