The walk­ing dead

TV Plus (South Africa) - - MOVIE MENU -

walk­ing dead (2010-cur­rent) fan favourite melissa mcbride (carol) might be pretty in­ter­ac­tive with her fans on twit­ter, but to a point. she’s open about her role on the hit zom­bie se­ries but when it comes to her pri­vate life, the 58-year-old ac­tress is a bit of closed book, lead­ing some fans to be­lieve that she’s gay. here’s what we do know about melissa…

she never au­di­tioned for the role of carol. she was “of­fered the role” in 2010 by cre­ator frank darabont, who re­mem­bered her from her small role in the hor­ror movie the mist (2007), which frank di­rected. her character was meant to be killed off in sea­son 3’s fourth episode, but she con­vinced the pro­duc­ers to keep her. she starred in oo­dles of com­mer­cials be­fore she made her tv se­ries de­but in a 1993 episode of the le­gal drama se­ries mat­lock (1986-1995). she then popped up in a 1995 episode of amer­i­can gothic (1995-1996), while fans of walker, texas ranger (1993-2001) will re­mem­ber her as dr rachel woods in 1997. ea­gle-eyed daw­son’s creek (19982003) fans might re­mem­ber melissa from play­ing two dif­fer­ent char­ac­ters on the tv show. in sea­son 1, she played nina, a woman who kissed daw­son after a nasty break-up. then she re­turned for sea­son 6 (2003) as a character named melanie. be­fore join­ing walk­ing dead, she was work­ing as a cast­ing di­rec­tor on a num­ber of short films. melissa has two cats and a dog. lin­coln log is her basset hound who some­times wears hats and poses for por­traits, which she posts on twit­ter, while her cats are named van­ge­line and sierra. in her spare time, melissa’s main hobby is pho­tog­ra­phy, like her co-star nor­man reedus (daryl dixon). she does have one vice: melissa’s a self-con­fessed cof­fee­holic.
