EW – The best piece of advice to anyone visiting the set of The Walking Dead in season 8? Bring earplugs. That’s because there is more stuff being shot off and blown up than ever before.

 

That’s right, the wait is over. The war between Rick and Negan has finally begun, and Entertainment Weekly has been down to the Senoia, Georgia, set to witness it with our own eyes and ears… at least what’s left of them. We’ve got all the on-the-scene scoop in our latest Walking Dead cover story, complete with three different covers (see below).

 

We spoke to all 20 members of the cast as well as the producers who make the show, and they all used the exact same word when asked about season 8: action. “It’s a f —ing in-your-face action-packed IV of adrenaline,” says Austin Amelio, who plays Dwight. “Season 7 was the ramp-up and now this is the blastoff. The stuff that’s happening is insane!”

I’ve added some beautiful new photos from 2016 San Diego Comic Con Entertainment Weekly’s photoshoot as well as a Glamour party.

The ‘Walking Dead’ actress opens up about season seven’s “heartbreaking” finale, her last “death dinner” with Steven Yeun—and what women know about surviving the apocalypse.

 

If you think the real world has gone to hell, we invite you to take a tour of the world as depicted in television’s favorite zombie apocalypse. The seventh season of AMC’s The Walking Dead has been grim—and that’s saying something for a world where hordes of the undead are basically set dressing. Chalk it up to the addition of the show’s biggest, baddest Big Bad ever: the sinister survivor Negan, played by a gleefully sadistic Jeffrey Dean Morgan. Negan puts a fine point on an oft-central question of the series—one we’ve asked ourselves, oh, a couple of times since novelist Mary Shelley first conjured up Frankenstein: “So who’s the real monster here, anyway?” The answer he poses with relentless, cavalier brutality isn’t “us, but…” or “us, if….” It’s a grinning, “us, duh.”

 

But Lauren Cohan doesn’t view things that way. The actress has a skill for seeing the sunny side, even if she has to squint. On a cloudy day up in the Santa Monica Mountains, where Cohan is being photographed for BAZAAR.com, she’s the picture of placid poise in a gold and black Louis Vuitton dress. “I’m in the mind of another version of myself, which can be very steadying,” she says of wearing the shoot’s playfully sculptural outfits. This idea of steadiness is a quality Cohan tries to actualize in her character, Maggie. If the Southern farm girl-turned-fighter Cohan plays on The Walking Dead has remained a figure of stability since she first appeared in the show’s second season, it’s because Cohan sees Maggie as the eye in a storm. As the show’s survivors run from place to place, beating back threat after escalating threat, Maggie has become a touchstone for humanity and pragmatism in an increasingly ruthless narrative.

 

The ability to project such reliability comes from Cohan’s own itinerant childhood—the now 35-year-old was born in New Jersey, spent a year in Georgia, returned to New Jersey, then moved with her family to the UK as a teenager. The English accent stuck, and so did an aptitude for laying down roots in new soil. “It’s interesting for me to play to a hopeful feeling in the middle of tragedy,” says Cohan. More than perhaps any other character in the series, Maggie has seen tragedy not at the hands of flesh-eating zombies, but of flesh-and-blood humans. A recap, not for the faint of heart: her father is decapitated by the power-mad “Governor” of another group of survivors; her younger sister is accidentally shot dead by yet another wannabe despot; and her husband Glenn (played by fan favorite Steven Yeun) had his skull treated like silly putty by a baseball bat-wielding Negan in this season’s gruesome and controversial premiere. So what was that about hope?

Sorry these updates are so late. I’m still dealing with eye problems and have to have another surgery next week so I’ll be doing the updates as soon as I can but I can’t promise they’ll be timely until I recover!

 

Lauren looks amazing in this photoshoot (as usual!)

 

 

 







When she’s not fighting zombies on The Walking Dead, Lauren Cohan keeps her head on with killer core workouts, meditation retreats, and a tech trick for staying balanced.

The Walking Dead’s Lauren Cohan may star in one of the goriest shows on television, but in real life, she can’t stomach the sight of her own blood.

 

“Giving blood, or being near a needle, is the absolute worst,” she says, wrapping her hands around a mug of half-decaf coffee in a restaurant near Central Park in New York City. “At one recent physical, I thought, ‘I’ll just look so I know what’s happening, and it won’t be bad’—and I fainted. The fake stuff? No problem. Just don’t enter my skin.”

 

The fake stuff, of course, has been ubiquitous on The Walking Dead—the gritty AMC hit series about a zombie apocalypse—since the show’s debut in 2010. Lauren plays Maggie, a farmer’s daughter turned zombie butt kicker, a role that’s as emotional as it is physical. With the series now in its seventh season, we sat down with Lauren, 34, to talk about keeping in shape for the role, crying during workouts and, of course, killing zombies.

Your show is filmed in Georgia, so what’s the best part of working outside of the Hollywood bubble?

 

We’re an hour south of the city [Atlanta]. I’ve learned the power of deep connection—the people, the material, and the story. The most fun part is that it’s family. I am so close with everyone, and we’ve had the same core group of people together for so many years. And now we have a generation of Walking Dead babies. We have game nights, we cook together, we eat together.
