Maggie becomes more of a leader in season 6


She may not be on the front lines of battle outside the walls of Alexandria, but Maggie Greene is learning one of the most important skills to keep the community safe on The Walking Dead: She’s being educated on how to lead under the tutelage of Deanna Monroe. But how will that leadership come into play in season 6? We went to the woman who plays Maggie, Lauren Cohan, for answers on that as well as imminent threats on both sides of the walls.


ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY: When you have a giant cast like this there are obviously going to be times where your story line is going to be more prominent and other times where it’s going to be a little less so just because that’s the natural cycle of things. That said, I wanted more Maggie than we got last season. What’s it like for you being on a show where you know it has a giant cast and there are going to be these moments where you’re really going to have a chance to really stand out and shine, and other moments where you’re going to have to fade back a little bit?

LAUREN COHAN: Yeah, it’s a really good question because I was thinking about this earlier. If you step back and you say, “How has Maggie changed?” and if you look at that in the context of Maggie and Glenn, but also just look at them as individual people, the changes that have happened for her have been so fast. I think a lot of that comes from seeing how much the world has changed and then kind of zooming in on these characters and how they appropriate themselves to a new situation or to a new world.

This Is ‘the Mission: Impossible of Seasons’

It’s been a particular rough apocalypse for The Walking Dead’s Maggie Greene (Lauren Cohan). In Season 4, she lost her father Hershel (Scott Wilson) during The Governor’s (David Morrissey) assault on the prison. And last year, her younger half-sister Beth (Emily Kinney) was murdered in Grady Memorial Hospital just minutes before Maggie arrived.


Now, as her group finds sanctuary thanks to the Alexandria Safe Zone, Maggie is determined to settle down and start fresh in her new home. She jumped headfirst into her role as assistant to community leader Deanna Monroe (Tovah Feldshuh), and her relationship with husband Glenn (Steven Yeun) is stronger than ever. But as Maggie and the rest of the survivors will soon discover, there are threats lurking just outside the walls that could jeopardize this newfound safety.


We spoke to Cohan about the “different energy” surrounding Season 6 and what’s ahead for Maggie.


Does Season 6 feel different to you?

Yeah, it’s a different energy. It’s just been a much bigger season. It’s the Mission: Impossible of seasons, actually. I don’t know where people’s stamina is coming from. Everyone has huge story lines. In previous seasons, there have been characters who have taken a bit of a back foot during the season, but this year we definitely get these crazy action stories thrust onto every character. I’ve had my most fun this year. There are days where I’m exhausted and disgusting, but I don’t want the stunts to end. What always amazes me about the show is that there are these little escalations in stake and in story. The only place we had left to go was that heightening of action.

The Walking Dead – Q&A


What makes Maggie so hopeful season after season?

Maggie is an eternal optimist. When she finds something she can hold on to, she doesn’t let go. You see that in her holding on to the memories of her sister and her dad, what she has learned from that, and how she can be proactive with those losses in trying to make a better society, despite the pain.


Where did we leave Maggie in Season 5?

She finds Sasha and Gabriel at odds with each other. She is trying to bring the two of them together, two people who were in a lot of pain. It was a moment I really enjoyed with the three of us. There is no answer. There is no quick fix. Let’s just sit and be together, and forgive the differences that we have and the mistakes that we have made.


Why does Maggie believe in Deanna’s vision for Alexandria?

When Maggie meets Deanna, it is the first time she has seen someone with a revolutionary way of looking at something. The group has been surviving for so long there hasn’t been that much discussion of philosophy, new ways, and new hope. She is stirred and inspired by Deanna, and everything that Alexandria can be.


What does Alexandria represent for Maggie?

Alexandria represents who Maggie might have been if the apocalypse had not happened. It represents personal growth and where you go when you think positively to keep hope alive. The way they have been living up to this point has got to stop. Trusting this group and trusting this new way is a huge lesson in the lives of all these people.

‘The Walking Dead’ season 6 spoilers: Maggie enters protection mode

With the sixth season of “The Walking Dead” getting set to premiere on AMC on October 11, the network is doing something that for the most part is very kind at the moment: Releasing a variety of new photos teasing some of what to expect!


When it comes to Lauren Cohan’s character of Maggie, the new image above via TV Guide makes one thing very clear to us: She is not messing around! When Alexandria was discovered, its residents were living what was in part a serene life. We’re not going to say that they necessarily had it easy, but they were probably not particularly aware of all of the different struggles that existed outside of the town walls. The arrival of Rick’s group to the town has brought with it that reality, and some significant threats are coming … including the Wolves.

The Walking Dead star Lauren Cohan says season 6 is ‘suffocating’



I don’t know if anything can ever equal last year’s Walking Dead season premiere in terms of action and intensity. From the throat-slitting at the trough, to Carol blowing up a hundred zombies, to Tyreese bursting through a door like the Kool-Aid man, it was a nonstop assault. However, according to several members of the cast we’ve spoken with, this year’s premiere (which airs Oct. 11 on AMC) is unlike anything they’ve ever attempted.


Our cameras caught up with star Lauren Cohan and we asked the woman behind Maggie Greene how she would describe what we’re about to see in season 6. Here’s what she told us:


“I don’t know if anybody has said this yet but we always joke that the writers write these amazing action sequences from air-conditioned offices,” says Cohan. “And I think this season is no exception and definitely rises above. We have the most suffocating beginning to the season that I’ve experienced yet.”


She also echoes Steven Yeun’s comments to EW about some characters having a particularly tough time. “And I think what’s been really interesting is that you see us all kind of make strides in the direction of civility or civilization and a more regimented society,” says Cohan. “And it’s about being really challenged. So we’ll see a ton of challenges and we’ll see people the audience has been introduced to as very stable reliable characters crumbling, and I think it’s going to be pretty scary. Welcome to The Walking Dead.”


Welcome, indeed. To see Cohan chatting about season 6 for yourself, click on the video above. And for more Walking Dead intel, follow me on Twitter @DaltonRoss.
