...Lauren Cohan’s not allowed to say
How are you finding keeping the Negan cliffhanger a secret? I’ve never known people be so inventive! In a supermarket, in an airport, anywhere you go people are trying to glean some clue about what may have transpired. It’s obviously a tribute that people are this mad sometimes about not knowing!
It must be a very intense show to film. Is it hard to switch off from it? It’s one of those weird things where you almost enjoy the melancholy because you just feel more in touch. I think it does benefit us to be around each other – definitely a lot of us have felt that after [the season six finale] we are closer. It’s just one of those unspoken things – there’s such an understanding of the emotions we’ve been through together in the same space. It’s really valuable to me.
You’ve been on the show since season two. What’s it been like seeing it grow into the monster hit it is now? We’re really lucky on this show to be surrounded by such grounded people. I think that type of success could affect the show adversely and it doesn’t in our case. Andy Lincoln is just our leader and his attitude, his dedication is absolutely infectious for all of us, and I think that is for me an enormous part of the success of the show. Richard Edwards
