We had a very pleasant chat with Bobbie Grace , AKA Ranger Samuels from Fear The Walking Dead. Our conversation with her reminded me a lot of our conversation with Peggy Schott , especially when it came to describing the feeling of belonging to a large ensemble versus a short film. And, is it any coincidence that they are both gingers? πŸ‘€
The Unedited Interview Recording is... hilarious. But more than anything else, really slows down the conversation and exposes moments of levity in between the edits. You can enjoy it here:
