Fans of The Walking Dead will hardly be shocked that some cast members don't make it to the next season. In a recent interview with TV Guide, actress Laurie Holden, who plays Andrea on the popular zombie series, expressed doubts that even her character can weather the coming storm.
Up until recently, Andrea has been central to brokering a tenuous peace between the rival communities, appealing to their respective leaders to scale down their aggressions. "I think that when she looks down at [The Governor]... her better nature, her heart and her higher self comes in and says, 'OK, there's got to be another way. He was a father; he loved his wife. There's got to be a way that I can make peace'," Holden explained. "She's trying to figure out a way to save the people, not have any bloodshed and do so in a rational, peaceful way, just like Dale did with Randall in season two."
However, placing herself front and center in the conflict could be her undoing. "She's walking on a tightrope, and it's very dangerous," Holden explained. "I don't think anybody is safe on this show, to be honest. The only person who's really safe is Carl [Chandler Riggs]. I know that people don't want to hear that, but it's true. There's going to be more major deaths before the end of the season and no one is safe."
In a separate interview, executive producer David Alpert teased, "What happens to Andrea is not what anybody expects."
Do you think Andrea could be on the chopping block?
