Exclusive Interview: Garret Dillahunt Talks Tonight's Game-Changing Fear the Walking Dead

Garett DillahuntTonight, the mid-season premiere of the hit series Fear the Walking Dead, premiered on AMC. At the end of last season, John Dorie, played by Garret Dillahunt, snuck away from Lawton after he couldn't prove to Virginia (Colby Minifie) that Janis (Holly Curran) did not kill Cameron (Noah Kyle), and she had her brutally killed. He left his wife, June, Jenna Elfman, behind and went to his cabin to be alone.

Tonight's episode, "The Door," was quite an important and memorable one for Dillahunt. Earlier in the week the actor talked to Jamie Ruby in an exclusive interview about the game-changing episode.

Interview: Alycia Debnam-Carey, Jenna Elfman, Alexa Nisenson, & Christine Evangelista Talk Fear the Walking Dead, Returning Tonight

Fear the Walking DeadTonight, Fear the Walking Dead returns to AMC with all-new episodes for the back half of season 6B.

At the end of last season, after June (Jenna Elfman) saved Virginia (Colby Minifie)’s life, she agreed to give her the hospital she was after. Meanwhile, Alicia (Alycia Debnam-Carey), Charlie (Alexa Nisenson), and Dakota (Zoe Colletti) headed off to Morgan (Lennie James)’s new safe place, while Sherry (Christine Evangelista) and the other members of the Outcasts readied to fight Virginia.

Debnam-Carey, Elfman, Nisenson, and Evangelista talked to members of the press earlier in the week about series.

Debnam-Carey talked to SciFI Vision about her strained relationship with Strand (Colman Domingo) and whether or not they can repair it. “She has such a unique relationship with him, because she's known him for so long. She also sees him for who he truly is, which was what he was before the apocalypse happened, which was essentially a con man. So, she knows those pieces about him, but she's also seen him grow and evolve and change and become her closest pseudo family member now in this situation. While things are bad right now, I think she always hopes that he'll come back around. I think the reason he pushed her away in the first place was because she is able to bring out that humanity in him, that optimism, that hope, that love that he rejects so vehemently about himself. So, I think she does have a sense of hope for that relationship going further, but I also think it's going to get a little bit worse before it gets better. And the start of 6B, you do see some of that friction continue to evolve.”

Interview: Colman Domingo, Danay Garcia, & Colby Hollman Talk Fear the Walking Dead

Fear the Walking DeadTomorrow, AMC premieres the back half of season six of Fear the Walking Dead. At the end of last season, likely after sabotage from “The End is the Beginning” group, one of the wells exploded where Luciana (Danay Garcia) and Wes (Colby Hollman) were in Tank Town. Wes was injured from shrapnel and subsequently treated by June (Jenna Elfman), after being tortured by Virginia (Colby Minifie), who thought he might be to blame.

Meanwhile, Strand came looking for Dakota (Zoe Colletti) at the behest of her sister. When Alicia (Alycia Debnam-Carey) told Strand that Dakota was going with them, he told her that he wouldn’t be able to protect her and that she would dismantle what he was working towards. He then went to Virginia and told her what happened and that he was on her side. It’s hard to know whether he was telling her the truth or simply what she wanted to hear.

Earlier in the week, Domingo, Garcia, and Hollman took part in a junket with journalists to promote the return of the series where they teased about what’s to come in the back half of the season.

Domingo talked to SciFi Vision about problems that may arise between Strand and other characters now that Virginia has given him some power. “Strand has always been, I think, a Type A personality, who's sort of receded to B, because he was morally ambiguous. He didn't trust his instincts as much; he had them, but he was always challenged, so he sort of fell into being a B.

Interview: Lennie James, Karen David, & Mo Collins Talk Fear the Walking Dead, Returning Tomorrow to AMC

Fear the Walking DeadSunday, the mid-season premiere of season six of Fear the Walking Dead premieres on AMC. When we last left the characters, back at Lawton, after June (Jenna Elfman) saved her life, Virginia (Colby Minifie) agreed to let her have the hospital she wanted, where she would have not only help from Sarah (Mo Collins), but also Wendell (Daryl Mitchell).

Meanwhile, Morgan (Lennie James) had killed the convoy in order to kidnap Virginia’s sister, Dakota (Zoe Margaret Colletti), to trade with Ginny for his friends’ freedom, but instead agreed to let Dakota come with them to the safe place he was making. Meanwhile, Ginny was keeping a pregnant Grace (Karen David) captive.

James, David, and Collins talked to journalists earlier in the week about the back half of the season and teased a bit about what fans can expect.

Morgan is against killing and considers all life precious, but sometimes he has to do things he doesn’t want to. Is he willing to continue to compromise his morals, and will he have to live with the consequences? James told SciFi Vision, “I genuinely don't think that Morgan is a man who compromises his morals. I think that there's a perception of Morgan that when he tries to live by his mantra of “all life is precious” and that he won't kill, that if he does kill, it seems as if he's going against his own moral compass, and he's not necessarily. He's saying all life is precious, and his motion of not wanting to kill is what he would prefer to do, that he will do anything within his power not to have to hurt someone in that particular way. But he knows he's capable of it, and he knows that sometimes it's necessary. I think his disagreements with the group and what happens based on his disagreements with the group is a large part of the story in 6B and going on, so I can't really comment too much about it. It's one of those where you're going to have to watch and see.”

Video Interview: Eamonn Walker & David Eigenberg Talk Chicago Fire

Chicago FireTonight, NBC premieres an all-new episode of its series Chicago Fire. The drama series follows firefighters and other rescue personnel who work at Firehouse 51 for the Chicago Fire Department. Eamonn Walker stars as Battalion Chief Wallace Boden and David Eigenberg stars as Lieutenant Christopher Herrmann.

The two actors recently talked to journalists during a junket for the show where they talked about the real firemen who have influenced their lives, their favorite storlines of the season, and more.

Be sure to check out our portion of the video interview below.

The actors were inspired by real firefighters when creating their characters. Eigenberg told SciFi Vision, “I went on a ride along, and there was a real firefighter, and I was in gear, and I was standing behind him, and he was trying to break through a door, and he yelled at me, 'Open the -!' and he used some pejoratives - 'Open the door!' And it impacted me, because I was like, you know, you need to do what you need to do. He screamed at me and hurt my feelings, but I understood why he was doing that.”

Walker added, “Steve Chikerotis doing what he did from the very beginning, it was his love of the Chicago Fire Department that really made me realize who I wanted to make Boden be.”

Video Interview: Jason Beghe and Jesse Lee Soffer Talk Chicago P.D.

Chicago P.D.An all-new episode of Chicago P.D. aired last night on NBC. The series, police procedural drama, which is a spinoff of Chicago Fire, follows the patrol officers and Intelligence Unit who work at the 21st District of the Chicago Police Department, led by Detective Segergeant Henry "Hank" Voight, played by Jason Beghe. Jesse Lee Soffer plays the role of Detective Jay Halstead in the series.

Beghe and Soffer recently talked to reporters during a junket promoting the show where they teased about romance for their characters and more.

Be sure to check out our portion of the video interview below.

Beghe talked about the possibility of Voight having a love interest this season. He told SciFi Vision that he doesn’t think it will happen. “I can tell you, quite honestly, that stuff comes up from time to time, but I've always felt that Voight, [and] it seems to be changing a little bit, but in my understanding of the character, he really is still kind of devoted to his dead wife. I think it's changing to some degree, but he's always, from my viewpoint, felt still married, and not out of any kind of ethics or, you know, feeling about that, it's just the way he fell in love with her. He’s not a guy who is vulnerable to temptations that others are. He’s fairly rooted in the present time.”

He continued on, telling journalists “I think the truth is his heart and focus is consumed with Chicago and keeping it safe. I suspect, there may be a time where he will, you know, get hit by bow and arrow, but maybe not. You know, let's see. A lot of us think about those things a lot, and as I understand playing Voight, that's not something that he's consumed with. Most of us think about that a lot, and he does not, which I find is an interesting part of him, and it adds to a lot of who he is, because it's rare to find a person like that. It's a conscious choice, as I tried to create the guy, but we're all vulnerable to [it].”

Video Interview: Brian Tee & Steven Weber Talk Chicago Med

Chicago MedAn all-new episode of Chicago Med airs tonight on NBC. The series, which is a spinoff of Chicago Fire, follows the doctors, nurses, and staff who work at the Gaffney Chicago Medical Center Emergency Department.

Brian Tee, who plays the current Head of Emergency Medicine, Dr. Ethan Choi, and Steven Weber, who plays Dr. Dean Archer from the Emergency Department, recently talked to journalists during a junket promoting the show.

Be sure to check out our portion of the video interview below.

Weber told SciFi Vision who he’d like to get to work with on the series. “I'm desperate to work with Epatha, S. Epatha Merkerson, who I've loved since Jacob's Ladder…She had a small role in that intense movie, Jacob's Ladder. I'm gonna embarrass myself, but when I saw her, I was like, “Oh, whoa!” Then, I think over the years, we sort of met a little bit? My brain is addled. But I'd would love to work with her.”

Regardless, he is grateful for who he has worked with and has enjoyed it. “Listen, everybody on the show is wonderful…I'm enjoying working with with Brian. I have some upcoming stuff with Ollie (Oliver Platt). I enjoyed working with Yaya (DaCosta) and Dominic (Rains) and Torrey (DeVitto). It's kind of ridiculous; there's a wealth of really cool, creative people. So, whoever they put me with, I'm happy. I'm just basically grateful to be working. I mean, let's say it right out.”

Video Interview: More from Debris' Scroobius Pip and Norbert Leo Butz

Scroobius Pip and Nobert Leo ButzDebris, which airs Mondays on NBC, follows CIA Agent Bryan Beneventi (Jonathan Tucker) and MI6 Agent Finola Jones (Rian Steele) who work as partners at Orbital, a coalition formed between the two agencies to recover and study the effects of fallen debris from an alien spaceship. Norbert Leo Butz plays the part of Craig Maddox, Bryan’s handler at the CIA, and Scroobius Pip plays the part of the mysterious man working for Influx, Anson Ash. So far, not much is known about either character.

Recently Leo Butz and Pip talked to journalists during a junket about working on the series and teased a bit about their mysterious characters.

Be sure to check out our portion of the video interview below.

We still don’t know much about the group that Pip’s character is part of, Influx. The actor talked a bit to SciFi Vision about the mysterious group and their connection to Finola's father, George Jones. “There's basically a lot to learn. I think we've already teased, as Craig and the team are finding out, Influx [is] bigger than they may have appeared at first. It's not just a few guys in dark tones and moody facial hair. There's a lot more going on. There's a lot more going on behind the scenes.

“And the mystery is what the involvement is with Finola's dad, George Jones, and if it is George Jones. Obviously, the debris can do a lot of things. If there was a piece of debris that could reanimate the person who knows more about debris than anyone else in the world, I'd imagine Influx would be interested in that. Equally, if there was some way of faking a death, I'm sure they'd be interested in that. So, there's a lot to figure out in that world, but, yeah, we're very closely connected.”
