To celebrate the start of the sixth season of Fear the Walking Dead – which began this weekend – we sat down with star Colman Domingo to chat all things zombies.

Domingo has been one of the show’s longest-serving actors and he spoke about his surprise at how the show has endured but thinks it is down to the show’s writers and creators and how they have continued to reinvent the show as it has progressed. He also spoke about the lasting appeal of his character Victor Strand and how his elusive, unpredictable nature keeps people guessing: is he good or bad?

He also spoke about his experiences directing some episodes and how his work with Barry Jenkins, Steven Spielberg, Nia DaCosta, Ava Duvernay, and more have helped shape his approach to being behind the camera.

In addition, he gave us some snippets about his new film Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom, which is released at Christmas, and spoke about how both the film and its cast, led bu Viola Davis and the late Chadwick Boseman – his final role – will capture audiences hearts when it is released.
