Why Was ‘The Walking Dead’s’ Melissa McBride Crying at New York Comic Con?

October 12, 2014

“Look at the flowers”… it’s what people shout at The Walking Dead star Melissa McBride all the time now — even at the grocery store — the actress told fans at the New York Comic Con TWD panel on Saturday.

But the reference to that tragic scene from Season 4, when McBride’s Carol had to make an impossible decision about the emotionally damaged Lizzie, isn’t what made one of the show’s true breakout talents cry.

“It’s been the time of my life,” McBride told fans of her experience playing Carol Peletier.

“It’s something I’m so proud of for the character. It’s been something I never saw coming, and if I keep going, I’ll cry,” as her voice trailed off, and she did get teary.

“Because I love her,” she added, which was greeted with shouts of “So do we!” from the audience.

“It’s amazing to work with all these wonderful people, and to be so vulnerable with each other, but also to be vulnerable with the fans… the way you express yourself, we know how much you love [the show]. Thanks, guys,” McBride said, as castmates like Chad Coleman, Danai Gurira, and, yes, Norman Reedus, hugged and comforted her.

Without spoiling any specifics of Sunday night’s Season 5 premiere, we will say Carol factors heavily in the storyline, as the character continues to evolve into one of the best action heroines in primetime.

But we also have to admit: McBride’s emotional reaction at NYCC — along with warnings from TWD universe creator Robert Kirkman that there would be several “heartbreaking” episodes this season — has us a little worried for Carol’s future in the post-apocalyptic world.

In other words, #SaveCarol!

The Walking Dead Season 5 premieres Sunday, Oct. 12 at 9 p.m. on AMC.

That’s tonight! Don’t miss the season 5 premiere!

Who Is Norman Reedus’ Favorite TWD Scene Partner For Daryl Dixon?

June 06, 2014

Daryl Dixon (Norman Reedus) has had great scenes with just about everyone on The Walking Dead, but certain characters do tend to stand out.

Daryl and his brother Merle Dixon (Michael Rooker) had such a real dynamic we could absolutely believe they grew up together. Daryl and his other “brother,” Rick Grimes (Andrew Lincoln), have come a long way since their tense first encounter in Season 1, and now they are best friends for life. Daryl and Carol Peletier (Melissa McBride) bonded during the Season 2 search for Sophia and their bond has only stretched and strengthened with time. Daryl and Michonne (Danai Gurira) connected through their mutual hatred for The Governor (David Morrissey), but also shared some light moments. And Daryl most recently formed a sweet, unexpected friendship with Beth Greene (Emily Kinney) in Season 4.

Which character is Norman’s favorite for Daryl to interact with?

Just before Season 5 started filming, Norman joined fellow TV drama stars as part of an L.A. Times discussion, and he was asked about on-screen partners. After asking the question, the L.A. Times teased, “Norman, I feel like if you don’t say Carol people will stone you.”

Norman answered, “I was going to say Carol, be cool, be cool. My character changed a lot when they put us together. And it’s because of her, [Melissa]’s such a good actress, and she gets me, you know, I feel free to be vulnerable in front of her because she gets me, like she’s my buddy, and you can read everything on her face, she’s just a window.”

Beautiful. He didn’t have to say Carol — it’s not like Norman would be afraid to say, “Actually I was going to say Rick/Beth/Etc.” He chose her because the Daryl/Carol connection comes across as authentic and has evolved naturally over several seasons. Maybe in the future he’ll say Beth, Rick, Michonne, or even Eugene (those two seem like they’d have classic convos), but at this point it’s Carol.

Are you surprised to hear Norman’s favorite screen partner is Melissa/Carol, or did you figure as much?

The Walking Dead Season 5 premieres in October on AMC.
