The actor studied theater in Boulder, not far from where he grew up. As an actor, he moved to Los Angeles to pursue his work and become a master impressionist. Luckily for us, he also landed a role on The Walking Dead.

This led him to work for Conan.

Among the many iconic episodes of The Walking Dead, one of Marquand’s comes in Season 7 of the series. In “Hearts Still Beating,” Aaron and Rick attempt to raid a houseboat, but that means paddling a bullet-hole-filled boat to the houseboat.

The duo gathers two broken boards and heads towards the supply boat. On their way, however, they must also fight walkers along the way. It would appear that the deceased owner of the houseboat set up traps on purpose.

The departed owner made it almost impossible for anyone to make it to his supplies, which was his purpose. In fact, Aaron nearly lost his life on the way to complete this mission with his friend, Rick.

For the scene, actors and cameramen also faced the possibity of snakes, alligators, and snapping turtles to complete the scene.
