Walking Dead's Jeffrey Dean Morgan on Brutal Season Premiere: 'I Didn't Want to Do It Anymore'

Jeffrey Dean Morgan pulls back his bathrobe to expose his shirtless body in this brand new feature for Interview magazine’s November 2016 issue.

Here’s what the 50-year-old The Walking Dead actor had to share with the mag:

On filming the season premiere: “Look, that whole episode was hard, and also because I did go through and smack everybody with Lucille at a certain point. Everybody took a hit. All of that was hard. It got to the point where I didn’t want to do it anymore. … Emotionally I was completely drained—all of us were, I would imagine. Andy and I just went through the ringer. It was a hard episode, and having to get there time and time again to do these horrible things… They’re all good people, and I love them—the whole cast—so to keep riding them as hard as I was riding them, in-between takes it was like, god, you’ve got to catch your breath a little bit. It was just so fucking heavy at all times. In the show that aired, there’s no let up, and it was like that for 10 days for us. It wasn’t just 40 minutes of it; it was 10 days of that, every day, all day.”

On pranks and camaraderie on set: Little stuff, but that’s really the two of them, Andy [Lincoln] and Norman. I drive a motorcycle, and Norman will respect the motorcycle more than anything else. We’re more in cahoots than anything else at this point, although I do kind of feel bad for Andy. I feel like I need to get Andy’s back and help him get Norman at least once real good.”

    He is amazing as Negan best character on the show for real. Finally a really well written bad guy. Hope he stays apart of the show for a long while.

    Sexy is the classiest was I can describe him. The other way wouldn’t be classy, girls you know what I mean. But it would still be a compliment, just a nasty one!! :)

    He is an amazing actor. I cried so much when he played Denny on Greys. Then I had to recently binge Magic City, it’s great! All of them did an amazing job on TWD 7-1. Love you Jeffrey~
