Cliff Curtis previews ‘Fear the Walking Dead’ and his character

As the debut of Fear the Walking Dead nears, Comicbook.com got in interview with star Cliff Curtis about his character, the show and prepping for the zombie apocalypse.

“What I really like about my character is, he’s a normal guy. He’s got his own issues, he’s got no dark heart,” Curtis said about his character Travis, the divorced father trying to make his new family life work.

“He’s an optimist… He gives time to people who most people don’t give time to,” he tells CB.com. “He’s got two new kids in his relationship, he’s divorced and has another kid from his prior marriage…The rest is a roller coaster ride.”

Set in Los Angeles during the outbreak, Fear the Walking Dead promises to expand the universe started by the popular AMC show. Curtis confessed that doesn’t have the stomach for the show and hasn’t watched it.

“It’s not that I can’t handle violence. I’m intimidated by it but I can handle it,” he says in the article which noted that co-star, Mercedes Mason, described Curtis as a soft-spoken man who plays chess between takes on set.
