Madison Lintz has been making a name for herself in the acting world. She previously played Sophia during the first two seasons of The Walking Dead. For the past four seasons, she’s starred in drama series Bosch, available on Amazon Prime Video. YEM spoke with Madison about her career, being a young actress in Hollywood, and what Riverdale hunk she would love to work with!
Young Entertainment Mag: Did you grow up in an acting family? How did you first get started in acting?
Madison Lintz: Yes my entire family aside from my dad acts! My mom took me to a commercial shoot she was working on when I was six and from that moment on I’ve been hooked!
YEM: What was it like to be working as an actress at a young age?
ML: A blessing! My parents have helped me so much, it’s such a dream. The hours are long, but gratifying.
YEM: If you could work with any other actor or actress, who would it be? If you could guest star on any show, what would it be?
ML: Johnny Depp or Helena Bonham Carter. I’d guest star on Outlander if I could!
YEM: You’ve appeared on the Walking Dead. What was that like? What was it like to be a part of such a successful show? Was it interesting to see the show rise in popularity since it began?
ML: I really enjoyed working on the show, I had an absolute blast, it was like summer camp with zombies. I’m very thankful that I got to be a part of a show that became so popular and gained such a dedicated following! It was very interesting to see the show rise in popularity, my family and I had no idea it was gonna blow up like that.
YEM: What is your dream acting role?
ML: A movie where I’m a mermaid starring opposite KJ Apa who plays a prince. Is that too much to ask for?
YEM: You star on the Amazon Prime Video show, Bosch. Tell us about your character.
ML: Maddie Bosch, my character, is the daughter of the main detective in the show Harry Bosch. She takes after him a great deal and definitely wants to follow in his footsteps.
YEM: What is it like being a part of an Amazon series?
ML: Well, as an actor, it’s nice to be employed by ANY entertainment platform, but Amazon has been nothing but lovely to work for the last 4 years!
YEM: What can we expect to see this season?
ML: I can’t say much, don’t wanna spoil anything! This season was probably one of my favorites to film, I’m so so so excited to see how it turned out. The fourth season drops April 13th!
The fourth season of Bosch premieres this Friday on Amazon Prime Video!
