Walking Dead season 3...

Post  Banjo on 2012-07-07, 21:58

There's an S1 and S2 marathon going on now. Tomorrow at 7 pm, my time, yours may vary, there is a Talking Dead one hour show with previews of S 3 and cast interviews. The TD shows last season were interesting. On those they did a review of the weeks show with cast interviews.

That was a good Talking Dead session. The three main exec. prod., Hurd, Kirkman, and, the other guy, were all in the studio. Chris tried to pin them down on S3 stuff but of course they were as slippery as usual although we did learn that Merl is coming back (cut off his hand in S1 to escape the hand cuffs).

But the most interesting part was the segment that Chris filmed on the set in Atlanta. "Glenn", showed him around the prison that we saw in the last scene of S2 and where a lot of S3 will take place. It looked like it could be an old, abandoned prison or maybe an empty industrial building that they adapted to be the set. But no, they build it from scratch, from the ground up to be just like they wanted. Even the fake boiler room in the basement has all the stuff that a real boiler room would have and they have two-story rows of cells, stairs going up, the gates , barbed wire, everything just like a real prison. Kirkman, the graphic novels creator was really impressed.

The weapons prop man showed the Katana sword that Michonne uses to decapitate Walkers. They have three identical looking versions. One is fake, wouldn't hurt to be hit with it, one is aluminum....not sure what type of scene it would be used in....and one is the real thing with a razor sharp edge and the steel pounded down many times to increase the density which is how the original Katana swords were made. The prop man handed it to Chris and told him to swing at a thick piece of rubber hanging down, it was about two feet wide , 1/2" or so thick. Chris swung and sliced through it like tissue paper. His follow through on the swing caused the tip to hit the nearby concrete wall and took chip out of it.

They showed a scene from S3 where Michonne uses her sword to decapitate two Walkers and run them both through front to back. They also showed how they made a rubber mold of her face so they could make a life-like head for various scenes. That's quite a process and she said she doesn't want to go through that again.


They have a contest going, the winner gets to appear as a Walker in a scene. Of all the geek-fan type of shows going on now, TWD involves the fans the most and shows what/how they do things, and most of the actors are willing to come on and talk and answer questions. They haven't gotten Andrew Lincoln or Sarah Wayne Callies on yet, but I'll bet they'll eventually come on.

Dish Network dropped AMC on July 1 because the company that owns AMC was trying to bundle AMC, IFC & WE together at a higher rate when clearly AMC has a few higher rated show. IFC may have a bit of a following but nothing like AMC. I have never watched a WE show so I'm not sure what they carry. ATT U-verse TV service was able to reach a deal with the AMC package. ATT has around 5 million and Dish has around 14 million customers. Anyway, it will be interesting to see if they get things worked out before July 15 when Breaking Bad starts. If they don't get it worked out by the fall when The Walking Dead starts that will make me unhappy. I will not purchase it on i-tunes for $2 an episode. I'm not sure if Netflix has it but I dropped Netflix some time ago. I sure there will be a pirate's cove work around solution somewhere on the internet. Someone will record and upload it and everyone else can view it for free, assuming these kinds of nefarious activities happen on the internet.

Gosh Rus, that's too bad that you are affected by this debacle. Good luck on getting AMC , somehow. I'll stick with Comcast even though their ever-increasing rates may make me forgo some things in the future, like food or clothing.... Rolling Eyes

'The Walking Dead': Cast Talks About the Prison and Woodbury
Tuesday, September 18, 2012

Carla Day
Contributing Writer, BuddyTV

When The Walking Dead returns for season 3 this October, according to the cast, it is going to be non-stop action complete with lots of zombies. That's quite a shift from last season's nearly zombie-less episodes centered around the characters and how they were dealing with their new world.

AMC has released a new four-plus minute video with cast interviews and new footage from the season. This season will revolve around two separate locations: the prison and the utopia town of Woodbury.

Despite a mob of zombies occupying the prison, Rick feels that it is the best place for the group to hunker down. While that may not seem like a good decision on the surface, the prison should provide plenty of action for the group and entertainment for the viewers. It is an enormous shift from the relative safety they had at Hershal's farm.

Once they lockdown a portion of the prison, it should provide safety from zombies and give them access to any food, medicine, and ammenities that still remain there. The prison also acts as a defensible fortress.

Andrea, who was separated from the rest of the group, finds herself in the company of Michonne. From the preview, it's not clear how they end up with the Governor, but they end up in the town of Woodbury. At first look, it's a utopia free from zombies and terrible world outside.

I haven't read the comics, but I'm guessing that just as the prison is full of threats, so will Woodbury. The eventual meeting of the Governor and Rick will surely be epic. The two macho men with different philosophies going head-to-head will be a moment to await. If Andrea has to pick a side, which will she take?

One complaint about last season was the limited interaction between the group and zombies. From the trailer that looks to be resolved this season. The other major complaint was that T-Dog was relegated to a background role. According to the video, "You will get more T-Dog." Let's just hope he isn't killed!

Lastly, we will finally find out what happened to Merle after he cut off his hand in season 1 to escape from the rooftop. He's back.

Check out the video to hear more from the cast about The Walking Dead season 3 which premieres on October 14th at 9 pm ET on AMC.

I must say, they are keeping up the blood and gore quotient quite well in the first two eps. Last night on the 'Talking Dead' live studio show they had Wil Wheaton, a fan, and the guy that played Gomez the convict that got the machete in the skull when Rick decided he was too much of a threat.

He told how the amputation scene with Hershel had to be reshot because there was too much blood in the first shoot. The actor playing Hershel would actually fall asleep between takes and during setup.

In his machete-in-the-skull scene he said that the prop guys ran a tube up his neck and over his head to spurt the blood when the machete hit. two thumbs up

The Governor is setting himself up for failure whether he knows it or not. When he had his men kill the Nat'l Guard troops then go back to the towns people and lie about what happened, you could see that his men weren't happy about it. The fastest way any commander/leader can lose respect from his followers is to lie about something when they know the truth.

On The Talking Dead show, one of the exec. prods. said that he was leery about not having any of Rick's group appear in the episode when the writers presented the script, but he was very pleased how it turned out.

Re: Walking Dead season 3...

Post  Banjo on 2012-11-05, 14:37

I'm telling you, the social fabric of America is hanging by a thread now ! Killing off two major characters in one episode ?! The mind boggles ! It wasn't too terribly surprising that T-Dog bought the farm, he was always in the thick of the action, shooting, stabbing Walkers. But what's the point in killing Lori ? Good grief, now they have her little baby to care for and Rick and Carl are devastated. In the scene where Maggie comes outside carrying the baby, that was a real 6 week old baby. But they also have a radio-controlled "robot" baby that they will use in future scenes.

On the Talking Dead show last night Gale Ann Hurd one of the exec. prods. was on and she had no clear explanation as to why they killed Lori, except to say that there was a lot of real tears on the set that day. IronE Singleton (odd first name , but that's how he spells it) was also on. He plays T-Dog and he thanked all the fans for their support and told how the producers called him in to tell him that he would be killed. They always have a big dinner the night before with all the cast, crew, and producers whenever a cast death scene is coming up.

Gail Ann said that they also use real props as much as possible and avoid CGI where possible. IronE explained the prosthetic 'device' he had to wear for the scenes where the Walkers ripped open his shoulder and throat. He had to sit perfectly still for an hour while the material 'dried'.

Sarah Wayne Callies (Ca-LEEZ is how you pronounce it) wasn't in the studio but they interviewed her on film and she said that Lori had always thought her pregnancy would be her death sentence. I wondered if she had ever expected to play a scene like that on the day she received her Masters degree in Fine Arts....I'll look up the school.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

She said that the pregnancy prosthetic in the C-section/death scene was different than the one she wore in the walk-around scenes because they had to pipe in the fake blood for when Maggie did the C-section with the hunting knife. She said there was so much fake blood that it was in her hair, all underneath her and she was stuck to the floor with it.

Then I got to thinking that writers/producers seem to kill off major, appealing female characters moreso than major male characters. There was Julie Benz on Dexter and Dominique on Hell on Wheels and now Sarah. Is it a trend ?

Gale Ann said that even if the show runs 7 years they could never catch up with the story lines in the graphic comics/novels that it's based on.

Pretty good episode. Poor TDog hardly had any lines. Good to see he sacrificed himself as his ending. Lori also sacrificed herself for her baby and was obsessive about having a healthy baby to give the group hope that humanity could live on. But is Lori really dead? Did Carl really go through with it? It was interesting that they chose not to show that scene. Taking care of a baby without a mother and Hershel who is missing a limb will be challenging. The prison is not as safe as they thought it would be.

I thought it was a little excessive for Carl to shoot his mother, off camera. She had probably already bled to death. I'm afraid she is really dead. They didn't indicate otherwise on the Talking Dead show.

Last night on The Talking Dead, Greg Nicotero who directed that episode told several interesting things, one that grossed out everyone involving Lori's corpse. He said that the Walker actors are given a colored mouth wash to make their mouths and lips red. If it's a child Walker they are given a more flavorful mouth wash. He showed the prosthetic that they made for T-Dog for when the Walkers bit his shoulder and throat. It was a life-size recreation of his whole shoulders and head. Looked exactly like him with the hole in his chest and the chunk out of his shoulder. Adding sound effects and shaking it around on camera and there's no way to tell it from the 'real' thing.

The 'fight club' scene was wrapped filming at 5 am after an all night session.

He was a little surprised that some of the scenes with Rick splitting Walker skulls with the axe made it past the censors. But what sort of censors would AMC have compared to ABC/NBC/CBS ? Darn few I'm guessing considering American Horror story also..... scratch

Q&A: Michael Rooker of 'The Walking Dead'
Just how much has Merle changed aside from his amputated arm?
By Mekeisha Madden Toby 23 hours ago

'The Walking Dead' '/' AMC

Alabama native Michael Rooker has a disarming way of making you realize he's not Merle, the racist, sexist and violent character he plays on AMC's "The Walking Dead."



Then again, Merle -- at least the one fans have come to know in Season 3 -- can be charming and is a lot more layered these days. But just how much has Merle changed aside from the whole amputated arm and gladiator thing?



Bing: More on 'The Walking Dead' | Michael Rooker



Rooker, 57, is tight-lipped about the new and possibly not-so-improved Merle but he did talk to MSN TV about the prosthetic he has to wear and how fans' enthusiastic reaction to Merle's return has been awe-inspiring. "The Walking Dead" airs Sundays at 9 p.m. ET/PT on AMC.



Plus: 'American Horror Story: Asylum' photo gallery | TV's changing tides



MSN TV: Do you like Merle? Do you have to?

Michael Rooker: Merle is very likable. What do you mean, "Do I like Merle?" (Laughs) You know you love Merle. Say you love Merle. Merle's not a bad guy. He's tough. A little bad at times but he's not the same man he was on that roof.



How has he changed?

I can't tell you much because where's the fun in that? But as the season goes on, you will see how he has become better and how he has become worse and the roles the Governor (David Morrissey) and Daryl (Norman Reedus) play in that.

'Michael Rooker' '/' AMC



How anxious were you to see what they were going to do with the hand in Season 3?

Once I came back for the new season, we had gone and done prosthetic molds and all kinds of stuff with my arm. So I kind of knew what it was going to look like. But I didn't know if it was really going to work or not. As it stands now, it works pretty good. It's a good thing to have in the apocalyptic era of our existence.



Are you right handed? Was that hard to get used to?

I am and at first it was a bit odd. Now when I reach to shake hands, even when it's off, I reach with my left hand. And people are looking at me going, "Dude, what's your deal? No, no. We do it with the right hand here."



Occupational hazard?

Oh yeah. And I'm a very hands on kind of guy anyway. I'll come up and hug you. Slap you on the back. Grab you and shake your hand. You know, I'm a very physical guy. So when I only do it with one hand, it's odd. You go to shake hands with your left hand and it's odd. The only person I did it to and he shook back was a fella that I met at a store that is an amputee. So, he always shakes with his left hand. It was like, "Look at you. You've got the real deal. I'm just pretending but you also have that whole left hand reaching out thing." Because your brain switches. It only takes a little while for your brain to get the message and adapt to the situation. I had it on and within a week of using it, putting it on everyday, I was doing all kinds of stuff with my left hand.



When you met that guy did you ask him any questions about what it was like to only have one hand?

Yeah and he was born that way. His limb stopped about right here (points to his arm just below the elbow) and there was no hand or fingers or anything. So he had been dealing with it all his life. But the whole right-hand shaking thing is odd for him too. But he turns his left hand down to shake people's right hands and I'm sticking out my left hand to shake their left hands. That's the difference.



That's interesting but that's because he's never known anything else.

He's never known anything else. He just flips and shakes the person's right hand. But I'm going for the left hand and people are freaking out.



'The Walking Dead Rooker' '/' AMCHow much of a method actor are you? Are you sleeping in that thing?

I take it off as soon as possible now. In the beginning, I had it on a lot and then it was like, "OK. Enough of this." So I take it off. Rest my hand and stretch my hand and my fingers, you know because it gets really cramped and it's not fun after a while.



There was no way you could've looked at the script in the first season and predicted any of this, right?

No way. I had a four-minute monologue in the first season in the scene right before he cuts his hand off. That was just me. On the roof. 115 degrees. I was sweating my ass off. Dying up there. That was real sweat. And everyone else was into it. We did maybe three takes and we were done. But we had so many cameras at different angles and we switched it three or four times. And we did it all the way through, from the first word to the last without any cuts. We worked on it all morning and after every take, there was a standing ovation by every crew member. So it was really kind of cool. Actors don't usually get that on set.



One of the coolest things at Comic-Con was when Merle came on the screen and the crowd went bananas. How did you feel about that?

Awesome. I was only in the first season and one scene in the second one and when fans reacted that way, it left me speechless. Before this season, I only had less than 10 minutes on screen on this show. Total. A friend of mine timed it. So it was quite interesting because I never expected to make a major impact on the show. Nobody knows when that's going to happen. You just do your work, do it the best you can and if it happens, it happens. And if it doesn't, it doesn't.

More interesting stuff from last night's ep and the Talking Dead studio show.

The guy in charge of "blood", said that they use corn syrup with red food coloring and thin it out as needed for the desired effects in various scenes, and also KY Jelly. They add white chunks of something, didn't catch it, as 'fatty tissue' for the disembowelment scenes. And they use shredded panty hose for other "tisssue effects". scratch

The scene where Rick hears the phone ring in the prison, picks it up and suffers "auditory hallucinations", thinking he's talking to dead people including Lori, was pretty neat because it was actually Sarah on the real, working phone line, playing Lori again from Canada where she was working on a project. two thumbs up

Also, Michonne showing up at the prison fence carrying the rescued basket of baby formula, reminds us once again that being covered in Walker blood and gore will camouflage your true human nature allowing you to walk among them unmolested. clap

'Walking Dead' fans chuckling over KFC ad placement
Jury is still out on whether AMC purposely aired endorsement after gruesome scene
By Mekeisha Madden Toby 3 hours ago

'The Walking Dead' '/' AMC

AMC's hit zombie drama "The Walking Dead" is not known for its comedic elements but every now and again, funny things happen, intentional or otherwise.



The jury is still out on whether AMC purposely aired a KFC endorsement and commercial immediately after a rather gruesome scene on Sunday's episode. In case you missed it, a swarm of ravenous zombies ripped open a man and feasted on him allowing Rick (Andrew Lincoln) and the gang to escape unnoticed.



Bing: More on 'The Walking Dead' | KFC and 'The Walking Dead'



After that, the screen went black, and "The Walking Dead" logo was shown followed by the image of a bucket of KFC chicken as the announcer said, "Brought to you by KFC. Come in today and taste why fresh is better."





Wow. It doesn't get more fresh than newly killed and still bleeding. Check it out:

If AMC is in on the joke, KFC is not. KFC spokesman Rick Maynard said in a written statement: "The placement of our brand's mention was unfortunate, and KFC has taken steps to ensure something like that does not happen again."



AMC declined comment. Meanwhile, Twitter users are still fired up about the awkward ad placement. Twitter user Harry Knowles tweeted: "Scene: Zombies feasting on guts. Cut To: The Walking Dead sponsored by KFC...Multiple folks grabbing for meat out of tub. IRONY IS ALIVE!" Knowles' tweet was retweeted 128 times.



Now, you could say no publicity is bad publicity for KFC. Unless of course you're a vegetarian trying to convince your friends to give up meat. In that case, score one for the vegetarians.

So Daryl and Merle are going to face off against each other in the "fight club" ? But we don't know if that will be the outcome of the final scene. I suppose it could be called a cliffhanger, although not of the sort to make us worry a lot.

Meanwhile on last night's Talking Dead, Robert Kirkman the creator said that Andrea is coming around to the realization that the Governor may not be as nice a guy as she thought after seeing the heads in the fish tank and the Gov.'s little daughter, a Walker, kept alive and chained in the hole in the wall. And since Andrea is standing there at the 'fight club' with a gun in her hand she may figure prominently in developments when the show returns on Feb. 10th, for the rest of the season. Also at that time the Talking Dead will expand to an hour which is great. clap Last night the 'fan guest' was Damon Lindlehof, the Lost creator. He had some interesting theories too. Of course Kirkman doesn't give anything away. tongue

'The Walking Dead' Recap: The Great Woodbury Breakout

Christopher Spicer
Contributing Writer, BuddyTV

The Walking Dead promised a rumble this week, and "Made to Suffer" delivers one huge battle royal. The carnage of this episode has ensured that the Governor will suddenly become 20 more kinds of crazy and evil. It's also revealed that Woodbury citizens may not be that far from the Governor's crazy bloodlust. The second half of the season may prove that Rick's crew should fear the living far more than the dead.

Slideshow21 Most Heart Breaking and Gut Turning Moments of 'The Walking Dead' Season 3 (So Far)

The Great Escape

We get our first major shootout, and Rick's crew delivers one exciting rescue. Though poor Oscar seems to pull a T-Dog by dying before we even get to know about him. We shouldn't be too shocked because a shootout needs casualties and he was the only member of the crew without an important storyline. We didn't even get to find out his favorite chocolate chip cookie recipe.

The breakout of Woodbury is action-packed. It also gives us another glimpse at bad-ass Glenn. Daryl and Michonne may appear to be the toughest characters on the show, but Glenn is the only one to create a zombie bone shank. All credit goes to Maggie for being the first ever user of a zombie bone shank.

Brothers Reunite -- Unfortunately For Them

Unfortunately, the great Woodbury breakout isn't a complete success since they traded Glenn and Maggie for Daryl. It looks like we'll get a rematch when The Walking Dead returns in February, except this time the entire community is rabid.

We finally get the Merle and Daryl reunion, but likely not the way most would have predicted. Throughout season 3, it has been hinted that Merle really cares about his brother, but he also seemed to be brainwashed by the Governor. Even though the Governor seems to have officially fired Merle, he is never given a chance to prove which person he'd choose. He is being left to the fate of an angry mob, more due to lying about Michonne's fate rather than an actual betrayal.

Do Rick and crew save Merle along with Daryl? If he does, that leads to some pretty interesting possibilities. You wouldn't think Glenn would be too eager to become buddies with the man that made his face a blood pudding. Plus, Merle's only real allegiance to the group would be his blood relation to Daryl. Then again, if you need a good mole to break into Woodbury, then the former right-hand man is probably your best choice.

Rick's Sanity May Not Be Totally Back

He had a phone conversation with his dead wife a few episode ago, and now he is re-killing his former best friend, Shane. It looks like Rick is being haunted by the dead, but not in zombie form this time. Obviously, this storyline is going somewhere, and I wonder if it will lead to Rick officially stepping down as leader.

Andrea Sees the Real Governor

I'm hoping Andrea is going to take a break from jumping in bed with the Governor. How can you want to get intimate with a man who keeps an aquarium of heads and a zombie daughter in a cage? I realize you can't be picky during the apocalypse, but that eye patch isn't a huge turn on, either, I wouldn't think. The fact Andrea doesn't shoot Michonne when she has the chance, and based off her face when Daryl is revealed, she may be finally ready to see Woodbury as a place that is about a galaxy away from perfect.

Michonne vs. Governor

Michonne and the Governor will have to battle again. Michonne is ahead by points since she ruins his wall of heads, kills his zombie daughter, and impales one of his eyes. I think the Governor may have bloodied her lip or bruised her lower thigh, but for the most part, she wins it by a landslide.

Though I have to say that Michonne makes one really odd mistake. Her character has proven to be very observant and intelligent. For some reason, she thought little girls make growling noises. I realize she probably hasn't seen a little girl in a long time, but she has heard lots of zombies.

Introducing Tyreese

The prison crew is going to have to battle the rapid citizens of Woodbury once again. It is rather helpful that a few new recruits stumbled into the prison. Tyreese makes his debut on the show, and he so far seems like a nice balance between tough zombie slayer and a compassionate leader. Maybe he will eventually replace crazy Rick? He also takes being locked in a cell fairly well, but then again, it is a lot safer place than the woods they came running out from. (Chad Coleman, another of the great actors from The Wire.)... (Michael Williams is another one....Chalky on Boardwalk Empire, and of course Lance Reddick on Fringe.)

The Growth of Carl

Kudos need to be thrown to Carl, too. He actually was a decent leader. It will be interesting to see how he develops over the next few episodes, since the poor kid has been through a lot. It will be interesting to see if Carl and the current crew will need to defend the prison, or if Rick will be back to warn them. Hopefully, Carl continues to grow and has a chance to be a respectable backup leader.

Axel the Comic Relief

One final note, The Walking Dead actually made me laugh. It looks like Axel is set to be comic relief. He will be until he becomes a zombie snack. Poor, clueless Axel is sweating and stuttering while trying to explain his reason for making moves on Beth, but then makes things worse by thinking Carol is a lesbian based off her short hair. After making his accusation, he quickly tries to pick up Carol, which obviously doesn't go too well. I think there should be a side story where every single week Axel fails at trying to hook up with a member of the group. It would likely end right after he makes a move on Michonne.

'Walking Dead' Star: 'We'll All Die Eventually'
Nov. 30, 2012, 1:30 PM EST
Entertainment Tonight.

Between its rule-breaking storytelling and off-screen ratings success, The Walking Dead has been a headline behemoth, with everyone in and out of Hollywood buzzing about the third season of AMC's zombie drama.

With only one episode to go in the sensationally scary and better-than-ever season, ETonline caught up with star Laurie Holden to talk about Andrea's foray into Woodbury, her time in The Governor's bed and what it will mean when Rick rolls into town!

ETonline: First of all, I have been loving Andrea this season.
Laurie Holden: Even though I'm sleeping with The Governor? [laughs]

ETonline: Absolutely. Why, is that a big complaint you're hearing from fans?
Holden: I don't think it's going over so well ... but it's not supposed to.

ETonline: Well, the audience sees such a different side of The Governor than Andrea does. I mean, do you think she has any inkling there's so much going on behind the scenes?
Holden: I don't think Andrea thinks there's anything wrong with the town – she hasn't seen the fishtank, she hasn't seen Penny, she didn't see him attack Maggie or his assassinations of other people. He's a sociopath, but she only sees what The Governor lets her see. It's a different face – with Andrea, he's charming and respectful and generous. The only thing she found off-putting was the gladiator fights, but he explained that quite well. Plus, when she walks around and sees women and children smiling and the elderly planting in their gardens, she's like, Wow, this man created a community that makes people happy.

ETonline: What did you think about Andrea's journey when the producers spelled it out for you at the start?
Holden: At first I was really sad because I genuinely love my Walking Dead family – we're really tight and I work with the best people in the world. I mean, we spend our holidays together, so I had to wrap my head around the fact I wasn’t going to be with Andrew Lincoln and Norman Reedus and Melissa McBride. I felt like I was almost on another television show. But at the same token, we were going to explore subject matter that was completely deviating from the graphic novel and rather risque, so part of me was really excited about that. We didn't know if expanding The Walking Dead world in the way we did would work. It was a big gamble, but it paid off. Which is exciting because now that means The Walking Dead can go anywhere now in terms of the storytelling.

ETonline: Last week's episode ended with Rick, Michonne, Daryl and Oscar outside Woodbury. Is it safe to say that Sunday's finale will see Andrea forced to choose between these two sides?
Holden:I can't say if that happens in the finale, but that is definitely something she will be confronted with at some point. I am excited to see the world's collide on Sunday, which just makes the show that much more intense and dangerous and terrifying. I can say that the mid-season finale is going to make people want top throw their TV sets out the window. I want to apologize in advance to the world because it is a treacherous way to leave people hanging until the new season starts. But it's good storytelling.

ETonline: Part of that good storytelling has involved the willingness to kill off main characters, as the show did this year with Lori. Obviously no one wants to lose a job, but from an artistic standpoint, is it exciting to be part of such bold storytelling?
Holden: Yeah, that's the tough thing. I'm not going to lie, none of us like that – we all love our jobs, we love Georgia [where The Walking Dead films] and we love each other, so we'd like to be here forever. But the truth of the matter is we can go at any point. I don't think anybody is safe and in a way I think that makes us all the more grateful and makes us feel blessed every single day that we have that day, because we're all going to die eventually.

ETonline: Looking ahead, is there anything you haven't gotten to do with Andrea that you'd like to do before she, theoretically, dies?
Holden: To be honest, I don't even know what that would be because she's already been the most complex character and taken the most incredible journey. I mean, what I'm shooting now is like a totally different Andrea compared to the episode you're about to see. I feel like I've shot 10 movies in three years. I was suicidal and then I was isolated and then I was angry and then I joined the group and became empowered and became a warrior and then I fell in love. I feel like it's been such a gift already!

The Walking Dead airs Sundays at 9 p.m. on AMC.
