The Walking Dead: Lauren Cohan on Maggie’s big moment

walking-dead-2-3

 

SPOILER ALERT: Read on only if you have watched Sunday’s episode of The Walking Dead, “Go Getters.”

 

“This is our home now, so you’ll have to call me by name. Not Marsha. Not dear. Not honey. Maggie. Maggie Rhee.”

 

BOOM! Delivered after serving Gregory a fist to the face, those words not only reestablished Maggie as a fighter, but as a leader as well — and the potential future head of her new community.

 

Sunday’s episode of The Walking Dead brought us to the Hilltop, where Maggie and Sasha grieved for their murdered men, defended the community from a nighttime zombie assault, and put the duplicitous current leader of their new home on serious notice. We spoke to Lauren Cohan to get her insight into this pivotal episode, as well as Maggie’s verbal and physical beatdown of her new nemesis.

 

ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY: I want to start right at the beginning of the episode, and ask what it was like for you to have that scene at the graves where we see you first approach Glenn’s grave and you leave the pocket watch there. What was it like — after filming that brutal premiere — to have to get yourself into that terrible state of mind all over again?

 

LAUREN COHAN: Yeah, it was pretty intense obviously coming from that episode, and then the change til now knowing that she had been unconscious. Maggie’s been out of it for a while, and coming to terms and coming to consciousness with what happened and wondering, “Is the baby okay?” Sasha’s been with her, but just waking up not knowing where she is and remembering everything that had happened, she is just trying to preserve some equilibrium for the baby and for her physical health. I think that that’s a lot of what happened, and then it’s how much Maggie’s really letting herself feel and remember and relive it. There’s a lot going on there.

 

We then have this scene a little bit later where the Saviors have unleashed zombies into the Hilltop, and Maggie jumps up on the roof, starts giving instructions, and then gets down into the tractor to run over the car blaring the music. First off, did you get to drive the tractor at all?

 

Yeah, how fun was that?!

‘The Walking Dead’ Cast and Crew Pay Tribute to Steven Yeun

lauren-cohan

“Steven brought me on to the show. He’s the first person that I hung out with. The day I got there, Steven, Sarah Wayne Callies, and myself went for Korean barbecue, and I remember I got to Georgia and I was wearing a flannel shirt and it was July and they were like, ‘Yeah, you need to buy some T-shirts.’ I also remember that year we went on Fourth of July to watch the fireworks and the sky opened. Oh my god, it was pouring rain! And we all left and everybody ran out with jackets over their head and we all went to Steven’s house. We got out the guitar and we just started singing, and Steven sang a song and Emily sang a song. We were all borrowing Steven’s clothes and sitting around his apartment on the Fourth of July with it pouring rain outside. It was like college. It was our first big hangout.

 

Steven has been a leading man professional on the show without ever having been any of those things before being on the show. You know what Steven is? He’s ride or die: You know he has your back. Everything that we see in Glenn is what Steven brings to him, and that’s that steady heart. I’m so excited for him knowing he’s going on to do amazing things. He’s the most professional gentleman and the silliest, funniest goof ever. And Steven’s still alive! So that’s good.”

One cliffhanger. Six months of waiting. And now not one but two victims.

AMC Present Special Talking Dead/Walking Dead S7 Premiere

 

WOW! What an intense episode! While I’m very happy with Maggie surviving the night, I wasn’t happy about our losses. I don’t like the new state of affairs!

 

 

‘The Walking Dead’ Renewed for Eighth Season at AMC

AMC is far from done playing with the undead.

 

The cable network has handed out an early renewal for zombie drama The Walking Dead, picking up the Robert Kirkman entry for an eighth season due in late 2017.

 

The news, announced Sunday at the top of a two-hour retrospective, comes a week before season seven premieres with the franchise’s most highly anticipated episode yet.

 

Season six of the series, based on Kirkman’s comics of the same name, ended with a massive cliffhanger. Negan, perhaps the franchise’s biggest villain thus far, was introduced in the season six finale as the character (played new series regular Jeffrey Dean Morgan) was on the verge of killing at least one of 11 core characters lined up before him. The show heads into its seventh season with its highest number of series regulars ever with 20.

 

Season eight — which likely will debut in October 2017 — will kick off withThe Walking Dead’s landmark 100th episode. Also returning is Chris Hardwick-hosted after-show Talking Dead. The early renewal comes as little surprise given the Scott M. Gimple-led drama’s ranking as the No. 1 show on TV among the advertiser-coveted adults 18-49 demographic. The series, starring Andrew Lincoln and Norman Reedus, has held that ranking for the past four seasons.

 

Season seven debuts Sunday, Oct. 23 at 9 p.m., followed by a special 90-minute Talking Dead broadcast live from Hollywood Forever Cemetery with all 11 cast members.

 

“Eeny, meeny, miny, more,” AMC president Charlie Collier said in a statement with a nod to Negan’s famous line from the comics and season six finale. “What a joy to partner with Robert Kirkman, Scott Gimple and some of the hardest-working people in television to bring The Walking Dead to the fans. And, most important, thanks to those fans for breathing life into this remarkable series right along with us.”
In addition to showrunner Gimple and Kirkman, The Walking Dead is exec produced by Gale Anne Hurd, Dave Alpert, Greg Nicotero and Tom Luse.

 

The Walking Dead is one of multiple series Kirkman has on his roster. He also co-created prequel Fear the Walking Dead, which has already been renewed for a third season in 2017, and has unscripted entry Heroes and Villains: The History of Comics‚ both at AMC, where he is under an overall deal. Beyond that, he has Cinemax’s Outcast, which the premium cable network renewed for a second season before its debut earlier this year. Kirkman’s Skybound Entertainment banner is also developing multiple titles for TV, including his comic Thief of Thieves for AMC and Chronicles of Amber, which has yet to find a network.

 

The Walking Dead ranks as AMC’s longest-running series. Its roster of original scripted fare also includes Fear the Walking Dead, Better Call Saul, Into the Badlands, Humans, Preacher, The Terror, The Son, Lodge 49 and the upcoming fourth and final seasons of Turn and Halt & Catch Fire.

‘The Walking Dead’ Stars, Producers Talk S7 at NYCC

Hordes of “Walking Dead” fans descended on Madison Square Garden Saturday night with the hopes of learning who wound up on the receiving end of new villain Negan’s bat at the close of last season.

 

Some came in elaborate costumes. There were assorted Ricks and Michonnes, one-eyed Carls and even a few Negans hefting barbed-wire bats.

 

Big spoilers about the show’s seventh season, which bows Oct. 23 on AMC, were not to be found at the show’s annual New York Comic Con panel, moderated by “Talking Dead” host Chris Hardwick. But there were some clues revealed at the end of the panel, thanks to a clip from the premiere that was well received by the adoring crowd.

 

Here’s what we learned:

 

  • Viewers will find out who’s getting beaten to death by Negan in the season premiere — no fakeouts, showrunner Scott Gimple promised. “It’s a weird feeling to be that powerless,” star Norman Reedus said of shooting the sixth season finale and seventh season premiere. “It doesn’t look like we’re going to get over that wall. I hated doing all that. It was miserable. It sucked, it really did.” Exec producer Greg Nictoreo, who directed the season opener, added: “Some of the most amazing moments were found not where you’re going to expect them.”
  • Negan (Jeffrey Dean Morgan) is worse than the Governor of season three fame. He’s got a “Barnum and Bailey style of justice,” according to Morgan, which viewers saw on display at the end of the season. And they’ll only see worse. But why would anyone follow such a brutal maniac? “It’s not just the charisma,” Morgan said. “A lot of people follow him out of fear of getting an iron to the face or worse. But he’s also kept a lot of people alive for a long time.”
  • Unlike previous seasons, which have been a little more contained, season will be more expansive, according to exec producer Gale Anne Hurd. We’ll see more of the “Walking Dead” universe, including King Ezekiel (Khary Payton) and his terrifying tiger Shiva.
  • Tara (Alanna Masterson) doesn’t know yet about the grisly fate that befell her lover Denise (Merritt Wever).
  • Lauren Cohan, who plays Maggie, was overcome with emotion at one point during the panel, forgetting the question Hardwick asked. Does that mean Maggie’s dead? Not necessarily, but such a reaction probably doesn’t bode well for viewers invested in Maggie’s emotional state.
  • Star Andrew Lincoln wasn’t at the panel, but Reedus told a story about him putting Reedus’ motorcycle on a boat and sending it floating into the middle of a lake. “With a sex doll on it,” Reedus added.
