Walker plays as Jerry Shepard in Disney’s Eight Below. The film is an adventure drama set in Antarctica, where brutal cold forces two explorers to leave their team of sled dogs behind as they fend for survival. Shepard vows to return to rescue them.
I spent almost a month, eight to ten hours a day, just working with the dogs, prior to jumping on the principal photography bandwagon…you have to earn their respect, much like you would with riding a horse. It was important that I had a relationship with each and every one of those dogs.
