Interview with the actor
Ross Marquand, the actor behind Aaron, one of The Walking Dead’s most prominent gay characters, spoke recently in an interview about the importance of inclusiveness. Read on further to know about his personal opinion on the show and its creators. “I love it. I think it’s very important,” Marquand said. “I think that [The Walking Dead creator] Robert Kirkman has done a really good job of including characters of all walks of life, as it should be because that’s how life really is. It’s a fair representation of how people are in the world. That every group is fully represented is very important to everyone on this show.” Marquand also praised the television network AMC, the showrunner Scott Gimple and Kirkman for their preference to the original source material, including staying loyal to the sexuality of its characters. “Someone asked when I first got on the show if there was any talk of Aaron’s sexuality being changed, and I have no idea if that was ever being discussed but it would have sent a really terrible message, especially to people who were fans of the comics,” Marquand said. “I’m very grateful that AMC and Scott and Robert have done such a good job of maintaining the vision of those original comics, because I think it’s a really wonderful kind of metaphor for how we can all bind together in times of real struggle and real chaos. No matter where you’re from, no matter what walk of life you come from, or whatever your background, your sexual orientation, we can all come together and find goodness in each other. I think it’s great.” On his personal opinions about the inclusion of the LGBT community and the fact that majority of the gay characters are killed in the stories or shown with a happy ending, he voiced his concern that there is surely an ongoing unfortunate trend. He feels that such characters receive a lot of backlash from the audience but the creators should take into consideration whatever is best for the story.
