The Walking Dead star reveals emotion as he reads final script

The Walking Dead series has ended, but the zombie universe will be continued in other derivative productions, which are still in development.

With mixed emotions from fans, the cast also felt sad about having to leave the production. One of the actors revealed that he didn’t even want to read the script for the last episode.

“A Sheriff awakens from a coma to find the world in ruins, and must lead a group of survivors to stay alive,” reads the series synopsis.

With Andrew Lincoln having led the cast over nine seasons, stars like Norman Reedus, Jeffrey Dean Morgan, Lauren Cohan, Melissa McBride and Danai Gurira also make an appearance.

The actor revealed that he didn’t want to see the final episode with his family, and would like to see it alone so he doesn’t have any distractions.

“I need to see this alone, without distractions. I don’t want to watch it with my kids or my wife. I know it’s going to be exciting,” he said. “I know it’s going to be hard and I deny that I won’t see all those people again. It’s been really hard to talk about the fact that it’s ending.”

Morgan also revealed that he does not know if he has read the entire script, as he would not want to get to the last page and have to say goodbye.

He even commented that he always talks to Norman Reedus about each script, and the last episode was difficult for both to discuss.

“I don’t know if I read the entire script because it’s the end and I didn’t want to get to that last page. I remember going through it very quickly.”

“I always talk to Norman Reedus about every script we read, and then we kind of check and grade and the last one was really hard for us to even talk about.”

Although the star was saddened by the end of the series, his work on the famous zombie franchise is not over yet.

The actor will star in The Walking Dead: Dead City, spin-off that will still have the presence of Lauren Cohan, who plays Maggie in the saga. The details of the series have not yet been revealed.
