Mercedes Mason Talks “Fear the Walking Dead,” Diversity on TV & Acting Career


DA MAN: Now, with a decade’s worth of acting experience, what would you say is the most important skill that you’ve developed as an actor?
Mercedes Mason: I hope I continue to learn and forever strive to improve myself but the most important thing I’ve personally learned about acting, thus far, is to listen. Acting is reacting. Listen to your scene partner. Listen to your own instincts. Listen to the world around you and soak it all in. It’s my most useful tool.
