The Walking Dead, Season 7: MELISSA MCBRIDE / Carol

The Walking Dead, Season 7: MELISSA MCBRIDE / Carol

How should fans prepare to watch the Season 7 Premiere?
It’s going to be rough. There is no way to prepare for what is going to come. You think you know what is going to happen and the way it’s going to happen. You are not prepared for what is coming.

Carol isn’t Suzy Homemaker anymore, is she?
The persona that Carol is taking on is a little bit different than the one she had in Alexandria. She has a little more sass.

What does Ezekiel add to The Walking Dead world?
What this character has in the Kingdom is something very different from Terminus and from Woodbury, and something that Alexandria maybe could become. This colorful leader, from then goodness in his heart, genuinely wants a better world for the people in the Kingdom. What motivates him, how he follows through, how he takes care of the people – I don’t think the fans will be disappointed in Ezekiel or his sidekick.

How is working with Khary Payton?
Once Khary gets the hair on and his voice going, it’s an amazing transformation from the actor to the character. Working with Khary is super special. When anybody comes into The Walking Dead family, we like to embrace them and make them feel like they are home. I don’t know how they gather up the kindest, most interesting, wonderful people to work on this show.

Describe Carol and Morgan’s relationship with each other...
Carol and Morgan are in conflict with one another with their points of view. Morgan himself is so kind. He doesn’t have a mean bone. Carol is kind too, except she can’t go to that place. It’s going to be interesting to see these two together this season.
