Melissa McBride on a ‘Very Different’ Carol in Season 8

October 17, 2017

“We’re ready for war,” says Melissa McBride about season 8 of The Walking Dead (which premieres Oct. 22 on AMC). The good news is Carol is ready for that war as well, and McBride couldn’t be happier about her character’s change of heart. “Carol is in a very different place than she was in season 7,” says McBride. “Which I’m really happy about. I’m happy to get her out of the cabin and in the fold of something moving forward. It’s going to be action-packed, very physical, and suspenseful.”

While in between takes at EW’s recent Walking Dead cover shoot, McBride explained why Carol is ready to suit up in the battle against Negan. “I think by now, given the circumstances and what she’s learned about Glenn and Abraham and just exactly what this whole wrath of Negan is like, the threat — I think she’s come to terms with the fact that this is really what you have to do, like it or not, hate it or otherwise — exploring exactly the reasons why you continue on and having to do those things to survive. I think she’s really, really working that out and coming to terms with the fact that that is the way to move ahead.”

Melissa McBride Remembers Giving a Zombie a C-section

October 10, 2017

Carol has killed her fair share of zombies over seven seasons of The Walking Dead, but if you ask the woman who plays her, Melissa McBride, about them all, there is one that stands out.

“It’s hard to pick just one favorite walker kill in these first 100 episodes, ’cause by now she’s had quite a few,” says McBride. “One of the more memorable ones, however, was when Carol was practicing the C-section and had to take down the female walker at the prison gate.”

It wasn’t the walker itself that was so special, but rather the circumstances surrounding it. “There was just something really moving and sweet about the walker that Carol had to put down,” McBride says. “Why she was doing it, how gently she approached it, how thoughtful she was of the whole situation. I think that’s really one of the more memorable ones.”

There’s another reason why McBride holds that scene so dear. “That’s so memorable because that was one of the first scenes I had with Steven [Yeun] — quite possibly the only scene I had with Steven.”

Did Melissa McBride Just Tease a Carol Pregnancy?!

October 09, 2017

Carol has changed a lot over her seven years on The Walking Dead, but her biggest adjustment could still be on the way. During the Walking Dead panel at New York Comic Con, Melissa McBride seemed to tease a bun in the oven for Carol this season.

While on stage for the panel, McBride was asked about Carol’s changes heading into this season, since she took a bit of a violent turn last year. She was asked if Carol was “trading in the cookies for body armor.”

“Yes,” McBride said emphatically. “Yes! Thank god! Yes! But that doesn’t mean she’s not gonna be baking something!”

That might sounds kind of innocent, but the suspicion comes from the way McBride said it. She got very mysterious when saying the words, “baking something.”

Remember, Carol had a child back in the first and second seasons of the show. Unfortuantely, her daughter was turned into a walker while they were staying at Hershel’s and the group had to put her down. Going through another pregnancy would really put Carol in a strange place.

The story would make sense though, as Carol and Ezekiel have seemed to be getting closer. Both lost the child in their life, and they could be looking to create new life together in The Kingdom.

It’s also worth noting that Carol is in uncharted territory. In the comics, the character was killed all the way back during the prison days.
