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.
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!!!
