The Walking Dead star claims season 8 will resemble Die Hard
The Walking Dead star Ross Marquand has assured fans the upcoming season is going to more action-packed than ever.
The seventh instalment of the popular apocalyptic series was a bit of a mixed bag, with many viewers complaining that the pace of plot had slowed considerably. However, apparently producers have taken this feedback on board, as Marquand (who plays Aaron on the show) has revealed season eight is set to be very intense.
Speaking to Entertainment Weekly, the star explained: “The first four or five episodes are kind of like little mini action films.”
Marquand continued: “They’re hour-long action films, each one of them, and that’s just exciting for me being an action nerd because Die Hard is my favourite action movie of all time and there are little moments like that throughout.
“There are these really sort of beautifully nuanced and realistic action moments. I think that we’ve struck a really good balance of the fantastical elements of the show with some really great just old school action sequences.”
