The Walking Dead's Robert Kirkman: Writing staff changes won't affect the show

"I don't think any of us expected this. In our best-possible-case scenarios, this isn't even close," the British actor tells TVGuide.com with a laugh. "It feels really unprecedented because the response has been so positive and affectionate. It's amazing. When you make something, you just hope that people will get why you wanted to do it or what you got from the script. But I don't think I've ever felt such an extraordinary reaction [where viewers] got what we intended to make. It feels great."
