The Walking Dead Universe has blessed us with some of the finest acting talent showbiz offers. And what a treat it has been for us fans to see what the actors have gone on to within their careers, such as the recent Emmy award win for Steven Yeun. Actors from the Universe are also embarking on new and exciting projects, such as Josh McDermitt's new role in Suits: LA.

Josh McDermitt portrayed everyone's favorite Mullet-wearing Doctor, Eugene Porter, on The Walking Dead mothership series for eight seasons. How time flies! Until Eugene found love with his ice-cream-loving' partner for life, Max Mercer (Margot Bingham), during the final season.

One recent feature by McDermitt was on the Podcast Go Fact Yourself. And it came with some lovely chat about a certain horror series we all love here, guesses?

Kilmartin's specialist subject was all things The Walking Dead, without any spoilers, she embarked on exercising her knowledge on the show with McDermitt on hand to help with his expertise. Aside from the fun of the quiz, McDermitt goes back into what sparked his love of the series in the first place and his relationship with fans. Plus, how he tried to hide that he had been cast in the show as a surprise until AMC 'spoiled' it!

This is a fun and energetic podcast that TWD fans can play along to, testing their Undead knowledge while having many laughs. It is lovely to hear McDermitt back and also talking about the show again. Plus, listening to him speak so highly of TWDU which means so much to us fans is nothing but a joy!
