Mitch was born in Oregon, however he did not grow up there and only lived there for a short time. His father was in the military, which required him to constantly move around. He spent a lot of time living in Turkey, which is where he gained his love for acting.
- This will be Mitch's second time filming a show in Texas, after filming the Dallas revival there several years ago.
- Walker's parents were killed in the original series before it premiered, making Mitch's role the first of its kind.
