AMC’s Fear the Walking Dead finally returned for a fourth season this past Sunday, introducing a few new characters and seeing The Walking Dead’s Morgan crossing over to the companion series. We also very briefly touched base with some of our regular characters, though we’ll have to wait to see what happened to them during the time jump.
During a recent Red Carpet event for TWD and FTWD, stars Kim Dickens (Madison Clark) and Colman Domingo (Victor Strand) spoke to SYFY WIRE about what to expect from their characters during the upcoming season. And it sounds like things are about to get very interesting.
When asked about how important it was for Madison to be at the center of everything since the show’s first season, Dickens said: “Madison is the mother. We started Fear the Walking Dead as about a family and Madison is the leader of the family; she’s a leader of the extended family that they put together. You can expect her to remain at the center.”
But where does Strand fit in? “He’s trying to become a part of a new community in Season 4, so we’re trying to see if he can fold into a community, or is he going to look after himself or his best interests,” said Domingo. “So it’s a battle. A battle of his internal self that he knows, things that have helped him survive, being a bit of a con artist. But I think that he can possibly use those to a group’s advantage, so we’ll see where that goes.”
Regarding whether he sees Strand as a good guy or a bad guy, Domingo said: “I will say Strand is an incredible enigma of a man who has many surprises, and he surprises himself, so I’m not quite sure if he would say if he was a good guy or bad guy. He would say that I’m simply Strand.”
There’s a lot more to see in our exclusive interview below — including Domingo’s thoughts on how he would like to see his character go on the show (if he were to go) — and who would Dickens pick to create her own apocalyptic group from the cast.
