Interview: The Last Ship’s Travis Van Winkle: “No matter what, I’m always going to bring me into” a role

Travis Van Winkle stars as Lt. Danny Green in TNT’s The Last Ship. The show, also starring Eric Dane, Rhona Mitra, Adam Baldwin and Charles Parnell, is the story of what happens when a global pandemic wipes out eighty percent of the planet’s population and the crew of a lone naval destroyer must find a way to pull humanity from the brink of extinction.

The show is almost finished it’s first season and it’s already received a pickup for a second season, something Van Winkle is clearly excited about as you’ll see in the video above.

I talked to him at a roundtable interview at Comic-Con where chats about getting a second season of the show, going to DC to help promote the show and the direction his character is headed.

He’s also asked if he’s similar to his character. To which he responded: “No matter what, I’m always going to bring me into” the role.

Finally, he talks about working with the Navy Seals who, he told us, are “authenticating everything.”

The Last Ship airs on Sundays at 9pm on TNT
