Melissa Teases Bad News for Carol Fans

October 10, 2016

Melissa McBride continues to tease a dark fate for her character Carol in The Walking Dead Season 7.

The actress shared a cryptic message to The Walking Dead TV panel audience at New York Comic Con 2016 about Carol’s future. Here’s what McBride had to say: “Every step she’s taken up to this moment has just devastated her…What is it about this world that makes us want to survive so much? That’s a huge question.”

There comments make us nervous. McBride has consistently talked about Carol’s dark path while promoting The Walking Dead Season 7 . Carol has always pulled through the darkness and survived despite the odds stacked against her. We’ve seen Carol’s resilience in The Walking Dead Season 5 when she covered herself in walker guts and made a makeshift missile launcher to rescue Rick’s group from the Terminus cannibals.

However, Carol isn’t doing so well by the end of The Walking Dead Season 6 finale. Carol wants peace and doesn’t believe she will get that in Alexandria. She’s starting to lose herself, and it could mean the show is preparing to say goodbye to the character. In the comics, Carol goes through a similar depression after she catches Tyrese cheating on her with Michonne. Carol feels alone and starts to distance herself from her daughter Sophia. She tries latching on to Rick and Lori, but fails to convince them to have an open marriage.

Carol then ties up a walker in the prison basketball court and lets it devour her. She essentially dies from suicide by walker. If Carol is too far gone, the show could have a similar fate for the character. At this point, if Carol has to kill people again she will probably turn the gun on herself. She can’t carry any more guilt and the only person who truly sees that is Morgan . He’s tried desperately to help her want to live; if Morgan fails Carol, it’s likely he’ll spiral back into his old ways.

Do you think Carol will make in past The Walking Dead Season 7? Let us know in the comments below. The Walking Dead Season 7 premieres Oct. 23 on AMC.

‘The Walking Dead’ Season 7 Premiere Episode Will ‘Rock The Walls!’

September 05, 2016

The countdown for the return of “The Walking Dead” Season 7 is now starting as fans are now all excited to see who will receive Lucille’s end. As the stars are now teasing what they know will happen, Melissa McBride has another question for everyone who wants to know what will occur.

Melissa McBride’s Mother Asks If She Will Die Next

“If I could tell you, would you really want me to tell you?” Melissa McBride questioned the ones asking her who will die in “The Walking Dead” Season 7. In fact, the 51-year-old star, who plays the role of Carol, was often asked but she wasn’t given a chance to tell the truth. Even her mother wants to know what will be the future of Negan’s (Jeffrey Dean Morgan) captives, as per Entertainment Weekly.

With her excitement, Melissa McBride’s mom questioned her if she is the one who will die in the first episode of “The Walking Dead” Season 7. “‘Did you die?’ I’m like, ‘Mom, I wasn’t in that scene,'” she happily shared.

Moreover, there are some fans that got angry for letting them hang with a major cliffhanger in the season finale of “The Walking Dead” Season 6. “It’s compelling and some people like cliffhangers, some people hate them, and that’s just part of the experience,” Melissa McBride explained. She also added that she is hoping everyone who gets mad will still watch the show as “The Walking Dead” Season 7’s premiere episode is going to “rock the walls!”

Not only that, Melissa McBride also teased that fans will surely feel that the waiting game for the coming “The Walking Dead” Season 7 is definitely worth the wait. Inquisitr also reported that the new installment is set to have additional communities, leaders and survivors. The story of the Hilltop Colony will be unfolded as Ezekiel (Khary Payton), Shiva and The Kingdom will all appear in the third episode. “The Walking Dead” Season 7 will return on Oct. 23 on AMC.

For Your Consideration: The 2015 Chainsaw Award Nominees for Best Supporting Actress in a TV Series!

March 04, 2015

With the Chainsaw Award voting still in session, FANGORIA believes that every nominee deserves a fair shot at the award in question. Yet when it comes to performances, the objective nature of cinema really takes a hold of the voter: fans of one kind of particular horror may disregard a contender altogether if they believe their project to be not their “type of horror.” Nevertheless, FANGORIA wants to shine a light on these nominees to give voters a better understanding of what makes their performances stand out within the genre this year.

Of course, there are a fair share of contenders who unfortunately didn’t make the cut in 2014. Michelle Monaghan, although fantastic in her performance, was a victim of underwriting in TRUE DETECTIVE, which cost her a potential nod in this category. The same goes for the marvelous Olivia Cooke in BATES MOTEL, whose role as Norman’s perpetually ill love interest was far too underused among the second season’s varied subplots. Angela Bassett was also straight-up great on AMERICAN HORROR STORY: FREAK SHOW, but unfortunately, her flamboyant performance lacked that special something to make it Chainsaw Award worthy. And while Season Five has given the most multi-dimensional version of Danai Gurira’s Michonne on THE WALKING DEAD, the character is still too stoic and predictable that Gurira’s excellent performance can’t break through the writer’s glass ceiling.

So without further ado, here are your FANGORIA Chainsaw Award Nominees for Best Supporting Actress in a TV Series…

Gillian Anderson, HANNIBAL
Madeleine Martin, HEMLOCK GROVE
Melissa McBride, THE WALKING DEAD
The obvious fan favorite among this year’s nominees, Melissa McBride has really delivered in Season 5 as Carol, a character many thought would be gone from the series altogether after Season 4. But McBride has earned her praise hand over fist, as her committed and physical performance improves both the writing and acting of any scene she shares. Furthermore, McBride has completely sold her transformation as a character from victimized wife to seasoned survivor, and is easily one of the most compassionate performances among the massive cast.
Billie Piper, PENNY DREADFUL
Deborah Ann Woll, TRUE BLOOD

40th Annual Saturn Awards!

June 29, 2014

Melissa McBride (Carol Peletier) won the award for Best Supporting Actress in a Television Series, Chandler Riggs (Carl Grimes) won Best Performance By a Younger Actor in a Television Series, the show itself won Best Syndicated/Cable Television Series, and if that wasn’t enough, it looks like our own Greg Nicotero also won a special honor called The George Pal Memorial Award.

The only disappointment is that David Morrissey (The Governor), who was nominated as Best Guest Star in a Television Series, lost to Robert Forster in Breaking Bad. But considering all the competition everyone faced in every category, it’s wonderful to see TWD recognized.

The 2014 event — presented by the Academy of Science Fiction, Fantasy and Horror Films — was held June 26 in Burbank, CA. TWD’s own Kyla Kenedy (Mika) presented an award, showrunner Scott Gimple was on hand to accept, and Scott Wilson (Hershel Greene) also looked dapper with the group — as you can see in photos below.

Melissa, who looked gorgeous as always, tweeted after the show: “BIG thanks to @SaturnAwards for the very special recognition tonight! Such a wonderful evening of celebration & inspiration #TWDFamily.”

With many thanks to Marina, I’ve added pictures of Melissa from the Saturn Awards!
