Rogue One: A Star Wars Story is just around the corner, and fans are gearing up for what seems like it will be an amazing first film outside the main Star Wars saga. Mads Mikkelsen, who is taking on the role of Galen Erso (Jyn Erso’s father) recently spoke to Birth Movies Death about the film from a galaxy far, far away and then went on to discuss a genre he’d like to spread his reaches to:
“I do love watching Walking Dead. I do. There’s something so fascinating, where when the zombies are moving sufficiently slowly, you actually want to live in that world, you know?”
He also revealed that he has no interest in a world where the zombies are the likes of those in World War Z, so his zombie film niche seems to be fairly limited. However, Mikkelsen has shown that he has the ability to play an array of characters, most recently Kaecilius – the main antagonist in Doctor Strange – and now the father of a key member of the Rebellion in Rogue One. It would definitely be interesting to see him take on a role of someone similar to characters that appear in The Walking Dead, should a zombie movie of that nature ever rear its head.
