51d63f7c3affa414158452dd694e22fc_f100I usually like to wait to approach WD newcomers for an interview, but Ross Marquand’s character Aaron has been interesting right out of the gate, with lots to talk about. And Ross and I covered a lot of it in this episode. We talked about:

  • His thoughts on the fan reaction to Aaron and Eric being gay.
  • How it was to film the scene when Rick punched Aaron.
  • Why Aaron resisted the apple sauce.
  • His friendship with Jordan Woods-Robinson, who plays Eric.
  • And a lot more.

Let us know what you think!

Don’t get cold-cocked….
