'Walking Dead' star talks possible character death

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?

 It's Obvious to us serious Fans. Ina give-a-way prediction then if Milton goes bye bye then one could guess that Milton dies saving Andrea. No way the Govnor either will last too much longer.

 We already know that Rick's group will leave the prison for other locales. One could guess that the Guvnor's group somehow blows up or premanently messes up the Prison so badly that living there is impossible.

 Daryl and his Evil Brother Meryl will also sometime sooner or later have a showdown, I would guess that Meryl makes a Play for Carol, whom Daryl sorta Secretly has a big crush or Man Lust for. When Meryl moves on Carol Daryl has to step in and "put his brother Down" for the good of their group and society in general or what's left of it.

 One could also wonder how Long Hershel will be able to stay alive, with only 1 leg and no prostetics anytime soon. Or could be an awesome story direction if Hershel did get some sort of Prostectic leg.

 I have always said and Thought that the Stry Writers do Not show enough Charactor Creativity. The Only Smart Weapon is Daryl's Crossbow, or a Hammer, or Baseball bat. What about a Bow and Arrow, or sword like the Fancy Katana of Mishone ? But come on Writers get much more Creative, Humans are if anything such Creative Tool Builders, the Writers need to show this as Ammunition is going to run out sooner or later.

 If the Premis of this Whole Story is that Society/Humanity lost itself with all our Great Technological advances and failed to see that a Cataclysmic Event could and would happen sooner or later; then with that said WHY aren't the Writers showing our Evolution back to more Primative Albiet Much Smarter Ways to Live our Lives ?

Love me some TVRage - but can we get a generic picture on the frontpage links? The 'milton' joins CBS pilot story kinda lets you know hes dying sometime soon - dont mind the storys just the pictures kinda give away more information then I'd like, and can't really avoid when coming to the site.

Not a huge deal, just saying its a little 'spoilery' when it comes to walking dead characters.
