‘Walking Dead’ actor Nick Gomez talks ‘Dexter’ season 8 role as ‘El Sapo,’ a contract killer

Nick Gomez, who will star as Javier Guzman in Dexter season 8 spoke with Hypable regarding his new role and his “fast departure” from The Walking Dead.

“I have to say working on The Walking Dead was one of my favorites!” Gomez says of Dead.

nick gomez“The character was so fun to play, all the other actors were so game and committed. The crew was so caring and dedicated to the cause. You just knew you were playing for a winning team.”

Gomez has landed the role of “El Sapo” on the final season of Dexter and now explains how he got the role.

“Guzman, nicknamed ‘El Sapo’ (The Toad) is a contracted killer sent to tie up some ‘loose ends.’ It was interesting because in the script it said he was a short, fat and squarish character, hence his nickname. But that’s not really me so I had to come up with a different reasoning behind the name, and I found it in his voice.”

Fans want more details on El Sapo and his fate, so Gomez offered this reply.

“My mother always asks the same question when I get a new role. ‘Do you live?’ And I always say the same thing. ‘For a little while.’”

The actor heaped a ton more praise on the Dexter cast and crew, so check it out here
