Lauren Cohan On The Walking Dead, Dead City, Glenn And More

THEN: Looking back, do you have a favorite Maggie storyline from The Walking Dead? Or a favorite season from the show?

Season 2 is so palpable for me. I have so much muscle memory from Seasons 2 and 3. The newness of everything and the raw emotions. The kind of terror and trauma, and the reason to fight for those characters. There were just so many brutal, and now memorable, moments from the series during that time. Like, we run from the farm, my dad’s leg gets chopped off, I perform a C-section on Lori—

Oh my god, I forgot Maggie’s the one who delivers Judith at the prison. I haven’t thought about that in so long.

Yeah! In front of Carl! And we bring baby Judith out and give her to Rick, and he’s destroyed. But even past Season 3, it was just one thing after another for Maggie, and I remember it so vividly. Hershel’s death, being separated from Glenn, the cannibals, Beth dying… it was so earnest and it was so much. Then, it eventually culminates in Maggie and Glenn getting married, him dying, and them having a kid. 

I think about it all, even the bad things, and I picture those golden hour moments of the good things. Like, when Hershel finds the cure for the flu and they save Glenn. Or when Glenn takes the photo of Maggie. The perseverance amidst the darkness and the chaos. I can’t believe it has been a decade of just really big things happening.
