Laurie Holden reveals that she is still upset with how Andrea, the character she played for three seasons of AMC’s The Walking Dead, was killed off the show.
Holden, who commits suicide after being bitten by a walker, said she ““got the call at 10 o’ clock the night before, while I was shooting, from the showrunner who is no longer a part of The Walking Dead [Glen Mazzara], saying that they couldn’t write the episode and that he was killing my character… I felt like I got shot. None of it was supposed to happen the way it did.”
During a recent fan convention, Holden again brought up her departure from the show, which called it a “mistake.” Holden explained, “I mean, it’s not like I couldn’t pull it off. I think the whole stuff that they wrote about Andrea and the Governor was complete and utter nonsense. I did the best that I could to tell that narrative and to justify it where Andrea kept her heart.”
I guess if I was Holden, I would be upset too. She no longer ha a role on the biggest show on television and she no longer gets a chance to work alongside Norman Reedus. That has to be tough.
