“It was a great arc from season one, all the way to the end. Thinking about it though I guess it was one of those blaze of glory deals!”

The interview asked the Days of Thunder actor if it got sickening to be around and eat with the zombies.

“Those zombies tend to hang out with themselves! At lunch time, the zombies have their own little table… Greg Nicotero is so good at that kind of stuff. It’s all so real. You did get a bit… Oooh… I think I’ll eat looking thisway!”

Even Rooker confessed he’s a die-hard fan and will keep watching.

“I will. I really enjoyed the work, but I also enjoyed watching it. I just caught up though – I didn’t watch all of the episodes whilst I was doing them, I didn’t have time. I hear there’s going to be a marathon real soon too. To be honest I watched about four or five episodes on the way over here on the plane. Un-edited too! They had five or six in a row and I just kept watching them until I was done.”

The Walking Dead returns to AMC October 13 for season 4.
