Melissa McBride Was Thrust Into The World On First Day Filming

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.”

Watch the video above to see McBride talking about the latest in Carol’s evolution.

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.”
