Alycia was recently interviewed by amc.com. She talked about the teenage perspective during an apocalypse and shared her thoughts on the arrival of the military in Episode 3. Read the interview below, or on the amc website here.

Q: Besides sharing a name, have you found any other similarities between you and your character?

A: What I think she’s brought out of me is a street kind of quality. She’s caring and loving, but there’s a toughness to her and she’s resilient. I’d like to think I’m a little bit like that.

Q: What was it like to portray the perspective of a teenager throughout all of this? In addition to homework and college acceptance letters, now you’d have to worry about your prom date wanting to eat your brains…

A: I think it’s such an awesome opportunity and it’s a great new element to the show. It’s such a unique position to be in. You’ve got everything to look forward to and that’s one of the saddest things about Alicia. She’s got so much to lose because she had so much to gain. Nick’s character is quite the opposite. It was hard because there were times in the script where I thought, “That’s such a bratty thing to say!” As a teenager, that’s your life. It’s either all drama or complete boredom.

Q: Alicia was head over heels for her boyfriend, Matt. What’s the downside of being young in love during an apocalypse?

A: Yeah, this is a dangerous position to put yourself in. [Laughs] It’s a double-edged sword because you need to find people you love in this world to make life somewhat beautiful again, but it also means you can’t protect them the whole time. Having those attachments make you the perfect target for emotional carnage.

Q: Alicia is not aware of what’s going on at first. Would you want to be shielded by your family as well, or do you think it’s best to know what’s going on?

A: I would want to know, for sure. I’m not a teenager, so I feel like my parents wouldn’t be able to keep that information from me. I think it’s important for everyone to know what’s going on at some point. If I didn’t, it’d probably mean I’d be killed faster. I want as much of a chance as I can get! [Laughs]

Q: At the end of Episode 3, the military shows up. Would you trust them if you were Alicia?

A: Who’s to say that they are doing good and are here for you? Once civilization ends, they don’t have any reason to keep helping other people because there’s no benefit in it anymore. When something bad happens, it’s like a domino effect. Everything falls… That goes for everyone. Suddenly, you can’t trust everyone.

Q: Your character was sure to pack her headphones when the Clark family was fleeing to the desert. What would be the first thing you packed?

A: Music would be a huge thing for me, but it wouldn’t last very long. I’d probably pick something sentimental and of value, like a photograph or a necklace. Everything else doesn’t mean anything in that world.

Q: Do you think Travis made the right choice letting the Salazar’s in to their home?

A: I don’t think Alicia thinks Travis is making any good choices. [Laughs] She’s confused why he’s in the household anyway, and now he’s calling all the shots and letting other people in. There’s a crisis, though, and he’s being a generous human being.

Q: What was almost being caught from the Clarks’ infected neighbor like?

A: Surprisingly scary! That’s the joy in that. There’s so much adrenaline. You get caught up in the breathing, the running and the physicality of it. I came away with a few bruises, but it was fun to be a part of.

Q: You’re an Australian native. Would you rather be trapped during in apocalypse in Australia or Los Angeles? What are some of the pros and cons for each?

A: Definitely Australia. If there is any safe haven on this planet, Australia is in the running. We’re so isolated. It’s harsh environments, but once you’ve lived there, you know how to deal. In L.A., you only ever know the community and that’s the first thing that falls and would be hard to adjust to. Also, with the virus, good luck getting to Australia! [Laughs] We’re so far away from everyone.

Q: Do you find the apocalypse to be more frightening in the early stages or the later stages? Is there hope early on?

A: I think the initial stage is more frightening. You don’t know anything that’s going on and suddenly you’re like, “Wait. Do I have to kill this person? I just had coffee with him yesterday. They’re just sick, surely.” That was hard to film, too, because we were trying to figure out how much information we knew and how to not anticipate stuff. We know as human beings what’s coming, but these characters have no idea.

Alycia was recently featured on Elle.com! Read the whole interview here or read some excerpts below.

Even though Fear the Walking Dead is obviously following in some pretty heavy footsteps, it’s still got its own personality and tone.

Yeah, it’s sort of a throwback to that old suspense-thriller vibe. You’re just waiting for things to fall apart. It’s a constant suspense.

Does it start to resemble The Walking Dead as we move through the season?

It’s still more of a slow burn, because it has to be different from the original. But it gets there. My character still doesn’t quite know what’s going on. She’s definitely been sheltered from everything. But you’ll start to see more of the infected.

Tell us about Alicia. She’s kind of a brat, no?

Well, she’s the only one that has ambition and goals. She’s striving to get out of L.A. and go to school in Berkeley, but she struggles against a really difficult family dynamic. She has a drug-addicted brother. Her father isn’t there anymore. She doesn’t get along with her stepdad. And her mother is just there trying to take care of everyone. So she’s been trying to protect herself and take a step back. But then, when everything falls apart, she has the most to lose, and she’s roped back into this situation she’s really trying to escape from.

Does anything within her character act as a tool in the zombie apocalypse?

She’s a very smart, well-equipped individual, and she’ll have a very interesting journey to go on. Will she crumble or rise to the occasion? And if she does rise to the occasion, will it be in that hardcore way where she’s really resilient? Will she grab that machete? We probably won’t find that out this season. because everyone is just discovering this new world, but I think the women in The Walking Dead shows have a really strong core.

Do you have a favorite zombie movie? Or did you watch any to prepare for the show?

I haven’t seen many, actually. I did watch the whole run of The Walking Dead. Michonne [Danai Gurira] with her swords—that’s what everyone wants. Screw the machete. But zombie films weren’t really my genre. When I got the script I was kind of nervous because blood and gore aren’t normally my thing….

What convinced you to do it?

The script is so good. And I liked the idea of the lead-up to the world falling apart. I liked and wanted to explore that. Because it is something we’re all very interested in. It’s not too far off from everyday life. Even with something like the Ebola crisis. That contagion idea is so relevant, and shows how quickly civilization could self-destruct. And then once we lose all that infrastructure, we’re basically just….

Animals?

Yes. Exactly. Animals.
