THOMASVILLE, GA (#WTXLDigital) - Scott Wilson, "The Walking Dead" actor and Thomasville native, went back to his stomping grounds for the Covey Film Festival.
Not sure who Scott Wilson is? He played Hershel on the AMC series, The Walking Dead. He is a graduate of Thomasville High School.
Wilson spoke to students at the Scholars Academy in Thomasville Wednesday. Students asked him questions about what it is like coming back to Thomasville, which "Walking Dead" actors are most like their characters, and what he loves about Hershel.
WTXL spoke to Wilson after the ceremony. He talked about his recent trips to Thomasville, including his high school reunion. He also told us what props he has taken from "The Walking Dead." Since it is a show about zombies, you can expect plenty of brains and severed limbs.
