Maggie will be taking no prisoners in The Walking Dead’s final series
Darren Scott

Maggie Rhee has been MIA since the apparent death of Rick Grimes. Six years later, she returns – but now she has to face Negan, the murderer of her husband… Playing one of the longest-running characters in AMC’s The Walking Dead, Lauren Cohan is no stranger to epic battles – but facing off against Maggie’s greatest enemy may change everything as the show begins filming its eleventh and final season.

Maggie’s been away for six years – did you have to learn to play her differently?

I had a lot of new information about where she’s been and how she’s been affected by those experiences. So it’s definitely been a matter of absorbing and translating that into how she relates to everyone. It’s exciting. It’s, in some ways, been almost like playing a different character, because she has changed so much. A defining characteristic of her being in pursuit of hope, or in pursuit of some bright spot to hang on to, has prevailed. But I think people get hardened in this world.

Did you have any input into Maggie’s story?
