Ever since his role as Shane on The Walking Dead, Jon Bernthal has landed dozens of movie jobs. In his newest film, Pilgrimage, he’ll be working with Richard Armitage from The Hobbit, and Tom Holland, the newest Spider-Man. Jon Bernthal | Photo Credit Pilgrimage

In the film, Bernthal plays a mute with a mysterious past and he also enjoys getting into fights. Some of these fights, according to a new interview, includes actually biting someone’s neck, which we all remember from The Walking Dead.

When Michonne and Carl got into trouble, Rick took out a jugular.

Jon Bernthal said:

“I think that the only power that it has is [that] all these people think it has powers. That’s oftentimes what an icon is and, I think, interestingly, I made the decision as The Mute. I think he’s a guy who’s seen both the full glory and he’s seen religion have as sublime an effect on people as it can possibly have, but I think he also bore witness to the absolute torment and torture and degradation that it can cause, going through the crusades and seeing the as-negative-as-it-gets part of religious fervor.”

“I think that he really thinks they’re transporting a rock, and the rock is not important. What’s important is the people that are transporting it, and sort of that soldiers’ creed that, at the end of the day, I’m fighting for the guy next to me, not for any sort of political or religious ideal. That’s really how I wanted to center that character, that it has nothing to do with anything except for his love for the character The Novice, played by Tom Holland. That’s something worth fighting for. That’s something worth dying for.”
