Hey guys I have to go but thank you all for your questions and support you are all awesome. Thank you.

Hello Reddit this is Moses J. Moseley. I act, model, and do public speaking against obesity. I've been in the industry for about 3 years now and have had featured parts in movies and shows such as "42", Necessary Roughness, Second Generation Wayans, Single Ladies, Joyful Noise and many more and what I'm best known for is playing one of Michonnes Pet zombies in the smash hit The Walking Dead. But industry aside I'm a down to Earth guy and an ex " un " fat boy lol so I'm definitely not stuck up. Feel free to ask me anything.

M'ask you somethin'... Who was your favorite actor to work with while you were on the show? They all seem very nice in interviews and behind the scenes, but I'm curious as to how they acted on set.

Also, how long did it take the make-up artists to get you ready for whenever you were in a scene? Thanks for doing this AMA!

MosesMoseley34 karma

They are all the most amazing and humble people to work with. But definitely Danai was the most memorable and 2 1/2 hours

MosesMoseley21 karma

They are all amazing and humble people but definitely Danai was my favorite. The makeup artist are all so talented and the best in the world at what they do and in between scenes all of 5 to 10 min

I changed my eating habits and worked out 3 times a day. Honestly I motivated myself I had to train my mind to stick to my goals and continually remind myself I could do it. I started at the age of 17 but it was a process, one day I just realized how unhappy I was and I told myself if you want to change you have to do it yourself.

ItsChadReddit17 karma

Appreciate the AMA!

Do you have any tips for people looking to become extras in film and TV?

MosesMoseley29 karma

No problem and keep your photos and measurements updated and don't get discouraged some of the best actors started out doing background work so keep at it.

kokirikid15 karma

Who is your favorite character on the show?

MosesMoseley23 karma

I thought everyone was awesome but definitely Michonne

guitarguy1212 karma

Did you have to train in Greg Nicotero's "zombie school"? If so, how was it??

MosesMoseley49 karma

I sure did and it was a lot of fun he's one of the most amazing and inspirational people ever and class was basically like going to school to learn how to play stupid and hungry so I was over qualified lol

Dabee62512 karma

Did you have to lose a lot of weight to play a zombie? Did you use any of your public speaking skills to council the overweight zombie swimming in the well?

MosesMoseley16 karma

I had already lost weight well before I got the part and I probably lost about 10 more pounds afterwards just to stay in shape.

LikeATroll12 karma

Hello Moses. Big fan of the show and Michonne's walkers here. I have a few questions:

  • How was it working with Danai Gurira?

  • Have you formed a dead character's society with anyone else who "died" on the show?

  • Did you make friends with your pet zombie counterpart?

  • What do you enjoy to eat when you aren't eating flesh?

Thanks so much for doing an AMA!

MosesMoseley30 karma

TheAwkwardKittens9 karma

Hello Moses! I'm so happy you're doing this, so here's my questions were you a fan of the comic/show before you got cast on it? Also did you get to hang out or really connect with one of the cast members, if so then who? Thanks! :)

MosesMoseley14 karma

Thank you and I actually didn't know about the show until after I got casted for it but once I did my part I looked back at the previous seasons and instantly got hooked lol and I talked with a lot of the cast and found them all amazing and awesome to work with.

springtexan9 karma

If you could choose a character to feast on, who would it be? The govenor or Merle? Why?

MosesMoseley34 karma

We'll between The Governor and Merle, if I had a jaw, definitely the Governor because he killed Hershel :(

thetestednoob8 karma

MosesMoseley15 karma

My plan is to team up with Danai and stock pile all the swords and guns I can find lol

FlayTownHookCity4 karma

MosesMoseley5 karma

It was all amazing truly awesome and an honor to work on

Hick_Lion1 karma

What was it like auditioning? Did your agent say 'theres a gig here where you get chained up and walked about...oh and you're a zombie, you in?' . Or did you do any script readings etc?

Cheers Moses, awesome thread!

MosesMoseley5 karma

It was kind of interesting because I never auditioned for anything where I wasn't talking lol but it was a lot of fun and I basically got a phone call telling me my responsibilities and what all I was required to do but I loved it.

roastedbagel1 karma

Hey there! So what was it like when you heard you got the part? Were you aware of the zombie character you'd be playing (and the significance) beforehand?

Shoutout from /r/TrueWalkingDead and /r/TheWalkingDead!

MosesMoseley6 karma

It felt like a dream mainly because I got called at 4 am lol and I had no idea who the character was or what the show was because I never heard of it until I got casted lol

TunaOnWheat1 karma

Hi Moses! What type of workout routine and diet do you maintain to stay healthy, not just for general purposes, but for your acting career? Also, did you get to meet most of the cast while working on TWD, and do you still stay in touch with any of them?

MosesMoseley8 karma

Hey there and I do a lot of cardio and weight training and I don't eat red meats only fish and chicken and I drink a lot of water. I work out at least 5 days a week for 2 to 3 hours. And I talk to a lot of them mainly at conventions and signings

ChrisRjCaron1 karma

What was it like working with the Walking Dead cast? Were they stuck up or were the really down to earth people? (always wondered that with the stereotypical rich person attitude)

Btw, you were one kickass zombie! Best of luck with your career!

MosesMoseley8 karma

It was awesome the cast is all amazing and down to Earth humble people. Thanks so much
