‘Fear The Walking Dead’ star Daniel Sharman talks his time on the show

‘Teen Wolf’ star Daniel Sharman recently began his role as Troy Otto on AMC’s ‘Fear The Walking Dead’.

The actor, best known for his role as Isaac Lahey on ‘Teen Wolf’ has fast become a fan-favorite on ‘Fear The Walking Dead’. Speaking with AMC,  the British actor Sharman said he loves playing this complex, difficult character. He also commented on his favorite shows at the moment, the funniest times on set and more. 

On what he most likes about his character:

The idea of playing very complex, difficult characters is always interesting to me. They are really good characters to play. There is such a complex set of reasons that’s gone into the way that Troy acts. I’m always drawn to characters who always have no redeeming features…that’s why I love Troy so much.

What was the funniest moment on the FTWD set?

Oh man…anything that’s funny isn’t funny to anybody else [laughs]. It’s like one of those stupid things when people have in-jokes and then you explain the in-joke and it sounds…yeah. I think it’s the thing when you’re shooting for so long you get delirious and then hysterical so then…something bizarre like a noise just breaks you down.

Which other TV series does he watch? 

I’m a big big big fan of watching other people’s work. I love Preacher. There are two other TV shows that I’m blown away by; The Young Pope and The Handmaid’s Tale. They’re just two series I think are beautifully put together.


Who would be your dream colleague for this set? 

I love Albert Finney, he’s a beautiful actor. I would love to star opposite him. I’d happily play his servant of some kind [laugh]. Or Mark Rylance…those two would be my dream two co-stars.
