Press: The Walking Dead’s Lauren Cohan Is Set on Survival

 
 

INTERVIEW MAGAZINE – It’s war on The Walking Dead. And if we’ve learned anything over the show’s seven seasons, casualties will mount and, quite literally, everything’s at stake when the AMC drama returns for its 100th episode and season eight premiere this Sunday. In a post-apocalyptic, brutal world full of walkers, opposing groups fight for survival, control, independence, and, depending on whom you ask, “the greater good.” Some existential questions ensue: What does it take to endure? And what will be sacrificed along the way?

 

According to Lauren Cohan, the British-American actress who’s played Maggie Greene since the second season, the key to her character’s perseverance is simple: heart. “Heart as in spirit,” explains Cohan. “The ability to communicate and to inspire people to fight, inspire people to love, inspire people be vulnerable even when you’ve been hurt or bashed or crushed … She’s able to let people in even when she’s completely emotionally destroyed.”

 

Maggie has experienced more than her fair share of loss: an incomplete list of departed loved ones includes her father Hershel (Scott Wilson) and sister Beth (Emily Kinney); her husband Glenn (Steven Yeun), who met his end at the hands of Negan (Jeffrey Dean Morgan), leaving Maggie alone while pregnant with their child; and, most recently, her friend Sasha (Sonequa Martin-Green), who closed season seven with an act of self-sacrifice, swallowing a poison pill in defiance of Negan. Despite it all, Maggie remains a leader and beacon of resolve.

 

HALEY WEISS: I read about the death dinners you have when cast are killed off of the show, and that you were responsible for bringing a karaoke machine into the picture when Steven Yeun and Michael Cudlitz left. Is that true?

 

LAUREN COHAN: You know what, it was Danai [Gurira]’s idea; I just made the phone call. We always have these death dinners, and we’ve obviously had so many people leave now. We still have the really sad part of the night where everyone sort of says their goodbyes, but Danai had this great idea to liven it up for the second part. We finished the night singing Backstreet Boys karaoke and everything else cheesy you can imagine. Steven was the first who we had the idea to do that for, because he really is such a karaoke king—I don’t know if he’s karaoke king, he’ll kill me if I say that—but he’s a really good singer. And he’s very sentimental, so we sang a bunch of ridiculous stuff. That night we did a tribute; we started it off with Backstreet Boys, and we all dressed as the Backstreet Boys [combined] with [Cudlitz’s character] Abraham—we had all white on and ginger mustaches. Everybody was sitting and eating barbecue, and all the girls filed out and did this dedication to Steven. It was really good. We cried and laughed.

Press: ‘The Walking Dead,’ ‘Fear the Walking Dead’ Plan Character Crossover Next Year

VARIETY – The worlds of AMC’s “The Walking Dead” and “Fear the Walking Dead” will collide at some point next year.

 

A character from one show will crossover to the other series — that’s what “Walking Dead” creator Robert Kirkman told fans Saturday night at the “Walking Dead” panel held at the Theater at Madison Square Garden as part of New York Comic-Con.

 

“Fear” launched in 2015 as a prequel to “Walking Dead.” The “Fear” storyline follows two families at the outset of the zombie apocalypse. “Walking Dead,” which bowed in 2010, follows the struggles of survivors trying not to become “walkers” long after the country has been overrun by the undead.

 

Kirkman would not offer any other details other to say that one character will hop shows next year.

 

“More news coming in the following months,” Kirkman said after teasing the plan for the “one character that I will not name.”

 

“Walking Dead” is set to begin its eighth season on Oct. 22. “Fear the Walking Dead” will wrap its third season on Oct. 15. The buzz about the convergence of worlds could help boost fan interest in Season 4 of “Fear,” which has seen a big drop in viewership since its first season.

Press: The Walking Dead cast on season 8: Rick’s got ‘his strut back’

EW – “This is the weirdest Walking Dead panel I’ve ever been a part of,” Jeffrey Dean Morgan remarked to the crowd gathered at New York Comic Con on Saturday.

 

He was responding specifically to all the fans referencing his old character on Grey’s Anatomy, but the Theater at Madison Square also heard talk of shipping Jesus (Tom Payne) and Daryl (Norman Reedus), another fan interrupting Austin Amelio to shout his disdain for Dwight, talk of a crossover with Fear the Walking Dead, and host Chris Hardwick turning #SexyA—hole into his new hashtag, thanks to a brutally misquoted audience shoutout. But, as evidenced by the cheers drowning out some of the chatter on stage and footage shown on screen, the fans are ready for season 8 and the cast thinks they have something worthwhile.

 

The Walking Dead took a turn for the worse in terms of Rick’s reality on the show, in terms of critical reception, and in terms of ratings. But heading into the season 8 premiere, which marks the AMC drama’s 100th episode, Andrew Lincoln feels the show is more like what it was in the beginning.

 

“Season 7 sucked for Rick Grimes, but season 8, he’s definitely getting his strut back,” the actor told the roaring crowd. “We’ve got the gang back together, I’m working with a few of my special buddies,” he teased before adding, “It’s reminiscent of seasons 1-4.” Then he offered another oddball moment of the night by doing his best Napoleon Dynamite dance for the crowd.

Press: The Walking Dead – Lauren Cohan on her ‘Hitchcock’ Moment

 

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.”

Press/Video: “The Walking Dead” marks 100 episodes with 3 celebratory EW covers

 

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!”
