The Walking Dead - Vincent Martella Phone Interview Transcript

I had the wonderful opportunity to interview Vincent Martella. This was my first interview to not only interview a celebrity but also meet them whether it was on the phone or face-to-face. Usually, my phone would record very well but I was surprised this time that the reception of the recording was very poor. Next time for future interviews, I will jot down notes and use a better voice recorder to record an interview. I apologize about this. The answers are not Vincent's exact sayings word for word but his sayings are very similar to what I wrote because I was able to hear some of the recordings. Plus, I have such a great memory in remembering what people tell me.

This interview was from October 14, 2013 at 4:01pm EST and ended at around 4:14pm EST.

Ben: Which celebrities inspire you to begin acting?
