EW – Deana was the first one to see it, grooming Maggie as a leader when she first arrived at Alexandria. And now her leadership training is complete. So is Maggie ready to officially take over running the Hilltop from cowardly Gregory?

 

It’s a question we posed to Lauren Cohan during a break at EW’s recent The Walking Dead cover shoot, and it sounds like the farmer’s daughter is prepared to accept that leadership position. “I think that Maggie feels very clear on safeguarding Hilltop and everything else that she can,” says Cohan. “And she knows that the Hilltop looks to her and respects her and follows her. And I think really quickly it snowballs into being in that place of leadership, but we’re all taking care of different factions of the world and we’re all in charge of the singular grand purpose. I mean, what else are we going to do?”

 

Without spoiling too much, we can say there is a moment in the season 8 premiere on Sunday Oct. 22 where the Hilltopers will face a choice between Maggie and Gregory, but the choice may not be as easy at it seems. How will it all shake out? You’ll have to watch episode 100 to find out, but in the meantime, check out Cohan in the video clip below talking about Maggie and the Hilltop.

EW – The upcoming season 8 premiere of The Walking Dead, airing Oct. 22, promises to be action-packed. Then again, most of The Walking Dead premieres go heavy on the action, with the first episode of season 3 being a prime example.

 

That was when the group found the prison as a new potential home but first had to clear it of hundreds of zombies. It may have been five years ago, but that epic killfest still includes Lauren Cohan’s favorite walker offing ever. “My favorite walker kill in the first 100 episodes still is when we get to the prison and we have those riot gear walkers,” Cohan, who plays Maggie, says. “Mostly that was my favorite because we knew we wanted to capture that horror, and it was so funny and it looked so horrific, but we were actually just having such a good time — just pulling the knife out and all that crazy green goop going everywhere.”

THE HOLLYWOOD REPORTER – AMC continued its The Walking Dead tradition, using the show’s Comic-Con stage to unspool the first look at its upcoming season. But before the new footage was screened, showrunner Scott M. Gimple and the cast took the stage with no introduction and went directly into a dedication for stuntman John Bernecker, who died July 12 after plunging headfirst from a balcony on the show’s Georgia set while attempting a seemingly simple 22-foot fall. Production on season eight was briefly shut down and multiple investigations are underway. (Spinoff Fear the Walking Dead, which paneled before the flagship, also featured a moment of silence for Bernecker.)

 

“We didn’t know if we should do this panel today. But we wanted to be here for you and do something for John,” a somber Gimple said after noting Bernecker’s countless credits and how much the stuntman loved his job.”John was someone who was beloved in the stunt community. He was living his dream and he helped other people do the same.”

 

Gimple then introduced the season eight trailer.
