“What you see a little bit of in that trailer is Tyreese stepping up as a character and taking a more central role. We didn't get a lot of time with him in Season 3 with everything else that was going on, and now in Season 4 we are really able to bring him to the forefront and integrate him into the core cast in a bigger way. We're doing a lot with him. I think Chad Coleman has proven that he's got very broad shoulders that can carry the lead and everything we ask him to do. I'm excited for people to see where we take his character because it's going to be really awesome.”

“I thought I’d said that I was disappointed that it didn’t happen this time, and that there are some amazing actors out there. I was rather disappointed that Paterson Joseph didn’t get it last time, although I’ve loved Matt’s Eleven. And yes, I have no doubt there will be. (I know one black actor who was already offered the part of the Doctor, and who turned it down.) Just as there will be a female Doctor.”
