Lauren Cohan Says The Walking Dead Season 6 Finale Was Her Hardest Day On Set Ever

COMICBOOK – When The Walking Dead returns on Sunday, viewers should be expecting chaos. All of the buildup from the first half of season six comes to head and explodes.


However, looking ahead, it sounds like The Walking Dead is only just getting started with its chaotic midseason premiere. More specifically, The Walking Dead’s season finale sounds like it will be one of the most difficult episodes to stomach of the entire series and fans are largely expecting it to mark the arrival of Jeffrey Dean Morgan’s Negan.


“I felt sick to my stomach when I read the script,” Rick Grimes actor Andrew Lincoln tells EW of the season six finale. “It was the first day in the whole six years of working on The Walking Dead that I was late for work because I woke up in the middle of the night and I couldn’t get back to sleep. I was so angry and frustrated and I felt sick. And that was just after reading it.”


Lincoln might not be happy about the episode but Lauren Cohan seems to be taking it especially hard.


“[Hearing] the word ‘finale’ gives me a physical reaction because it’s the hardest day on set that I’ve ever had in my life,” says Cohan. “I never even imagined that as an actor you could have that experience. It’s one of the most raw experiences that I think any of us have ever had. Andy talks about being late to work; I didn’t want to go to work that day. It took a really, really long time for everybody to feel okay again after the finale, let’s put it that way.”


If The Walking Dead’s season finale is anything like issue #100 of its comic book source material, it will be just as “emotionally wrought” as Ross Marquand promised it would be when we talked a few months ago. To recap, upon Negan’s arrival, he unleashes his barbed wire wrapped baseball bat on Glenn’s skull. There’s no word on whether or not the TV series will follow the same series of event.


The Walking Dead returns from its midseason hiatus this Sunday at 9 PM ET on AMC.

The rest of ‘The Walking Dead’ season 6 will be filled with ‘dark, scary, twisted stuff’

TECHINSIDER – When “The Walking Dead” returns to TV Sunday, February 14, expect things to get darker.


That’s what showrunner Scott M. Gimple had to tell fans during a conversation with the cast at the 92Y Monday evening.


“This half season is some of the most dark, scary, twisted stuff,” said Gimple during a screening of the show’s last episode and Q&A with cast members including Steven Yeun and Lauren Cohan.


It won’t all be gloom and doom, though.


“I think the characters themselves go to some very dark places,” Gimple continued. “But, at the same time, we go to some of the lightest places. We actually attempt a comedic episode.”


You read that right.


“Intentionally comedic,” said Gimple to a few laughs from the crowd.


“So there is comedy, there’s actually some sweetness, and then it’s interspersed with this incredibly dark stuff,” he added.


That sure doesn’t sound like “The Walking Dead.” Maybe it means we’ll see a bit more of Eugene (Josh McDermitt)? He was pretty funny in the season six premiere.

Lauren Cohan previews the big Maggie-Glenn reunion on The Walking Dead


Entertainment Weekly – Good news, Maggie! Your husband Glenn is alive! And he made it all the way back to Alexandria! Now, the bad news. You are stuck on a lookout platform with a herd of zombies between you and said husband. Sooooo, it’s a bit of a mixed bag.


That’s where we left those crazy lovebirds on The Walking Dead’s midseason finale, and Lauren Cohan admits in a conversation with EW that the couple has definitely been tested. “We have put the couple through the ringer,” says Cohan, “in terms of separating, then promising they’ll never leave each other’s sight again, and now they’re in the ultimate separation over this sea of walkers.”


But while Maggie and Glenn are once again in visual range of each other, Cohan warns that any sort of happy reunion is probably not in the cards with everything else going on. “The reunion is going to be somewhat overshadowed by a lot of other darkness,” she says. “I think I can say that much. Because they have found each other and just in time to sort of help everybody else in this huge battle that’s continuing. They’re completely underwater right now. We’ve had both of them at the absolute cliff edge of danger and death.”


And not only are they in visual range, but vocal range as well. “We shot that scene and I screamed ‘Glennnnnnnnnnn!’ so much I lost my voice,” Cohan says of the reunion with a laugh. “And then we didn’t quite get it so I did it all over again in ADR. That’s the biggest screaming I’ve had yet in the show.”


ADR, which stands for automated dialogue replacement, is when an actor goes into a studio to redub dialogue that was not captured properly. It can be an awkward process — especially while screaming — but Cohan actually enjoys it.


“I break a sweat when I’m in there because you’re literally running and trying to match every physicality that you were in during shooting,” says Cohan. “And, you know, half the time it’s like fighting. I’m wrestling on the ground then jumping up and yelling into a mike or something. It’s awkward, but it’s also the best part of acting because you get to just roll around. I always think it would be funny if you filmed it with no sound to see an actor in a black booth by themselves with headsets on acting like a cat.

Nunchucks. Brass knuckles.

Lauren Cohan Spills Her Secrets for a Killer Body

SHAPE – All that zombie fighting she does on The Walking Dead isn’t much different from how our January/February cover girl takes on a workout: The woman goes in for the kill


Lauren Cohan does not like to miss a workout. Her days on set can start as early as 4:30 a.m., and still the exercise diehard gets in a 20-minute (at the very least) sweat session beforehand, even if it means going to bed at 7:45 the night before. “When I don’t exercise in the morning, it’s a completely different day than when I do,” explains Lauren, 33, who stars in the horror movie The Boy, hitting theaters on January 22. “Working out gives me endorphins and makes me happy. I need it!” Lauren has five other rules she lives by, all equally designed to make her fit and healthy. You’ll want to listen in.


Move. Then move some more. “I am the queen of exercise variety. This week I was in L.A. and I took a Pure Barre class, went to Burn 60 [an interval workout class] twice, ran the track at UCLA, made it to the gym, and took a yoga class. I also really love to dance. I dance through workouts that aren’t even about dancing! At home, all my furniture is pushed to the edges of my living room so that I can dance around the room. Working out is harder when we’re on set. We film in Georgia, and I can’t go to classes. So I do exercise DVDs that have a lot of leg lifts, kicks, arm lifts—things that don’t need equipment. And I move all the time. I take the stairs, I do press-ups between scenes, and I do sit-ups before I eat lunch.”


Rely on fast food. “On Sundays I chop up tons of vegetables and make three or four Mason jars’ worth of dressings, and I throw dishes together at random during the week. With my schedule, it makes it so much easier to have things ready to go in my fridge. I eat healthy. But I splurge, too. My favorite is Justin’s Dark Chocolate Peanut Butter Cups. I’m obsessed with them!”

‘The Boy’ TV Spot Suggests You to Follow “His” Rules

BLOODY DISGUSTING – William Brent Bell (Stay Alive, The Devil Inside and WER) is tapping into the fear of dolls with a new take in STX’s upcoming horror, The Boy, which stars “The Walking Dead’s” Lauren Cohan.


Below we have a brand new TV Spot that strongly suggests you follow “his” rules. For whatever reason I laugh every time Cohan laughs in these trailers. It’s super funny to me. I also love that one of the rules, not shown in this spot, is to feed him. I can’t stand Bell’s previous work, but I really, really want to like this one.


In The Boy , “Greta (Cohan) is a young American woman who takes a job as a nanny in a remote English village, only to discover that the family’s 8-year-old is a life-sized doll that the parents care for just like a real boy, as a way to cope with the death of their actual son 20 years prior. After violating a list of strict rules, a series of disturbing and inexplicable events bring Greta’s worst nightmare to life, leading her to believe that the doll is actually alive.”


The Boy comes to life on January 22, 2016.

The Walking Dead Viewers Are Worried After Another Favorite Actor Drastically Chops Off Their Hair

For what it’s worth, I don’t think that Lauren’s haircut is a sign that Maggie going to die. Even if Maggie couldn’t get a haircut in The Walking Dead world (which she could do later in the season), Lauren has time to grow it out before they start filming again!


VANITY FAIR – Another day another TV star haircut to worry about, but this time it’s not Game of Thrones or Kit Harington under scrutiny. No, it’s that other popular cable show with the high body count: The Walking Dead. Lauren Cohan—who plays the female half of beloved couple Glenn and Maggie—has hacked off her longish wavy hair. The cut she debuted on Friday looks cute, but, according to some, could be cause for alarm.



As was the case when Andrew Lincoln shaved his beard, fans are worried that Cohan cut her hair because she will no longer be appearing on the show. There’s some spoilery information that might support that theory, but before we get to it, remember that Lincoln’s clean-shaven face was all part of his character’s transformation within the show. And as many have pointed out, in an earlier part of the Walking Dead comic book, Maggie and Glenn cut their hair together as a way of coping with their new life. It could be that Maggie’s dramatic trim has just been moved up to this season in order to help her deal with some future trauma. Let’s talk about that a bit more after the spoiler jump.

The Walking Dead renewed for seventh season


And now for the least shocking news of the fall TV season: The Walking Dead has been renewed.


AMC announced on Friday – just in time for Halloween – that the zombie drama will return for a seventh season next October. The show has been killing it in the Nielsens; it’s the No. 1 series on TV among 18-to-49-year-olds, and the Oct. 25 episode drew a whopping 18.2 million viewers (with 12 million of them coming in that key demographic).


The network also renewed Talking Dead, the aftershow hosted by Chris Hardwick that joined the line-up for Walking Dead’s second season. The last Talking episode drew 7.3 million viewers and is a top-10 show in the 18-to-49 demo.


“Thank goodness someone had a Magic 8-Ball with them in our many long internal meetings about these renewals. When, on the third shake, ‘without a doubt’ filled the murky blue screen, we knew we had to proceed with new seasons of The Walking Dead and Talking Dead,’” AMC president Charlie Collier said in a statement. “All joking aside, we are so proud to share these shows with fans who have been so passionate, communicative and engaged. We are grateful for and continually impressed by the talent, effort and excellence on continuous display by Robert Kirkman, Scott Gimple, Chris Hardwick and the many people with whom we partner to make these unique shows possible. The result: More Walking and Talking. Hooray.”



‘The Boy’ Horror Trailer From STX & Lakeshore Nears 5 Million Views

The new (and well-edited from AV Squad) trailer for the horror film The Boy has surged to 4.87 million views on YouTube since it officially dropped only days ago and has a total of about 17.5M views all in across all social media formats. The film, which is set for release on January 22, 2016, stars The Walking Dead‘s Lauren Cohan and Rupert Evans (The Man In The High Castle) and was directed by William Brent Bell. The creepy film was produced by Lakeshore Entertainment’s Tom Rosenberg and Gary Lucchesi along with Roy Lee, Matt Berenson and Jim Wedaa.


It was the fourth film to be put into production by STX but will be the third to release after The Secret In Their Eyes which stars Chiwetel Ejifor, Julia Roberts and Nicole Kidman and bows in November.


The Boy is about an American woman who takes a job in a small England village as a nanny for an elderly couple’s 8-year-old son (which appears to be a porcelain life-sized doll). They leave a list of rules for her to follow while they vacation, but when she starts breaking those rules, the boy retaliates.
