Today we are joined on the iHeartNow set with none other than actress and singer Emily Kinney! She joined David Brody and Danielle Monaro of The Elvis Duran Morning Show to talk about The Walking Dead, her musical inspirations as well as when her album is dropping!
When it comes to The Walking Dead, David Brody is our expert. Brody actually hosts a podcast about the show called Walkers & Talkers on our iHeartRadio app! When Emily came into the room we just knew Brody would be asking all his questions! 😂 SPOILERS AHEAD--- In case you didn't know, Emily's character Beth Greene died on the show in 2015 and it was quite emotional for Emily after the fact. Appearing on Talking Dead post death, Emily said it was definitely emotional talking about it after it aired! But now she is able to explore other characters like Casey who she plays in the limited series Ten Days in the Valley now playing on ABC. She can't give anything away about the show, but she did let us know that she actually sings in a future episode as she did similarly on an episode of The Walking Dead.
Even though we are hearing Emily sing on TV soon, we just can't wait for an actual album of her music to come out next year! Until then we are being blessed with a single of hers titled 'Mermaid.' The song is different from her other music which is mostly guitar based. This song, however, will be adding more instrumentation.
When it comes to inspirations, Emily impressed Brody with her knowledge of The Carpenters. She also mentions being inspired by Mariah Carey and watching Leonardo DiCaprio on 'Growing Pains' helped her realize she wanted to try acting.
We are so excited for Emily Kinney and everything she has going for her!
