Michael James Shaw may be on his way to comic book franchise domination.
While attending Atlanta's Fandemic Tour convention celebrating the zombie drama's epic final season, in an exclusive interview with OK!, Shaw teases another mega franchise he's been dreaming of starring in one day.

However, there is one particular franchise Shaw has his eye on, and it's in a galaxy far far away. "I would love to be a Jedi," he says, spilling his dreams of being in Star Wars. "Or a Sith would be cool also."
For now, Shaw currently stars on TWD as Commonwealth fan-favorite Mercer, who recently made his highly anticipated debut as the orange-armor-clad apocalyptic military leader in the first episode of season 11.
As OK! previously reported, the Constantine actor recently wished his costar Norman Reedus a speedy recovery after the Ride with Norman Reedus host was forced to cancel his convention appearance after suffering a head-injury in an on-set accident.
"I pray he's alright, but I wasn't there," Shaw told OK! exclusively. "Yeah, I pray that he's okay, and I wish him a speedy recovery, you know?"
The incident occurred on Friday, March 11, and resulted in the show's final season filming schedule being pushed back a few days to allow Reedus to heal and rest. Reps have since confirmed he is home and doing well.
