See Tyler James Williams of 'The Walking Dead' talk 'Star Wars' tryout

Posted on

TYLER JAMES WILLIAMS

Tyler James Williams has one warning: “Do not mess with my family.”

Williams, who plays Noah on The Walking Dead, is a massive Game of Thrones fan and a self-identifying Lannister. He’s also a major Star Wars fan who had a brief (and expensive) flirtation with collecting memorabilia from the iconic franchise.

But what priceless opportunity easily outdid anything Williams could have ever found on eBay? The chance to read for The Force Awakens.

Below, Williams spills on his once-in-a-lifetime Episode VII audition, justifies his Lannister love, admits to his TV crush, and name-checks the out-of-this-world action flick that inspired him to become an actor.

The Walking Dead wraps the first half of season 5 on Sunday at 9 p.m. ET on AMC.
