Emily Kinney

The Walking Dead” alum Emily Kinney revealed that she no longer watches the hit AMC zombie drama after her character, Beth Greene, was killed off.

“I stopped watching,” Kinney told Hollywood Life at the 2015 Shorty Awards on April 20 in New York City. “I didn’t see my death, because I had my own experience, and I didn’t want to change what my experience of it was, because it was so special to me.”

The 29-year-old actress also revealed that she didn’t watch her death episode, but she did watch the Season 5 finale.

“I found out Melissa [McBride] and Norman [Reedus] were going to be on ‘The Talking Dead,’ and I really wanted to see the final episode, because there’s something so celebratory about it,” Kinney explained. “So even though I wasn’t completely caught up, I did watch the finale.”

Beth met her demise in Season 5, Episode 8, titled “Coda.” In the episode,  Rick’s (Andrew Lincoln) group traded Licari for Carol, and then Shepard for Beth. But as the group turned their back to leave, Dawn (Christine Woods) demanded Noah (Tyler James Williams) to stay at the hospital as well. Noah volunteered to stay, and Beth hugged him good-bye.

Dawn then told Noah, “I knew you’d be back.” Disturbed by the statement, Beth approached Dawn and said, “I get it now,” before stabbing her in the shoulder with a pair of scissors. Dawn shot Beth in the head on impulse. Daryl lost his cool and shot the officer, also in the head, in retaliation.

The Walking Dead Season 6 Spoilers: Daryl Dixon or Rick Grimes Killed Off - Andrew Lincoln or Norman Reedus Leaving AMC Show?

The Walking Dead spoilers Season 6 tease that the writers and producers of the wildly popular TV show on AMC are considering killing off a major male character, and fan favorites Daryl Dixon played by Norman Reedus and Rick Grimes portrayed by Andrew Lincoln are allegedly on the chopping block. Considering the fact that after all the entire story revolves around a zombie apocalypse, it’s actually pretty shocking that both Daryl and Rick have made it this far relatively unscathed and without being killed off – although they have both faced a lot of close calls.

The May 4 edition of OK! Magazine reveals, “The Walking Dead’s two male leads may have survived the mayhem of last month’s season finale, but an industry insider reveals that both Andrew Lincoln and Norman Reedus know their time may soon be up. British star Andrew would be the easier to send packing. Not only is his family still based in the U.K., but the producers also fear a revolt if the resident heartthrob Norman is killed off. He receives more fan mail than all of the other cast members put together.”

‘The Walking Dead’ Spinoff: ‘Fear The Walking Dead’ Will Not Reveal Origin of Zombie Virus

By Brandon Katz | Apr 24, 2015 11:45 AM EDT


Fear The Walking Dead


Some disappointing news for fans that thought “The Walking Dead” spinoff show “Fear The Walking Dead” would separate itself from its predecessor: there still won’t be any answers about how the zombie virus actually started.

“Fear The Walking Dead” has been billed as a (sort of) prequel to “The Walking Dead” so viewers were hoping to get more information regarding the initial zombie virus outbreak. The early phases of the virus and societal breakdown would make for fascinating examinations of human nature but producer and comic creator Robert Kirkman revealed that there are no plans to delve into “Patient Zero.”

During a NAB panel with AMC President Charlie Collier and actor Steven Yeun (Glenn), Kirkman expressed his disapproval for “fixing” or “learning the cause” of the outbreak because he finds those story lines hackneyed. Instead, this companion series will center on the struggles of the characters. In other words, it’s “The Walking Dead” 2.0. Yawn.

The more and more we hear about the new series the more it sounds like recycled material. Kirkman noted that the spinoff “pays homage” to the original but teased that “it’s possible that the people that we’re following in the show are maybe a little bit more deadly in certain ways.” What does that even mean?

If you were an actress/actor on The Walking Dead and your character was killed off the show, would you continue watching after you left or leave the story with your character?

Some departed TWD cast members remain avid fans of the show, but Emily Kinney told HollywoodLife she didn’t watch Beth Greene’s death in Season 5, Episode 8, or her guitar-playing/car-driving return in Episode 9 … or most of the episodes after that.

“I stopped watching,” Emily told HL at the 2015 Shorty Awards. “I didn’t see my death, because I had my own experience, and I didn’t want to change what my experience of it was because it was so special to me.” She has also been very busy with other TV and music projects. However, she wasn’t too busy to make time for the supersized Season 5 finale and the post-show Talking Dead with two of her faves, Melissa McBride (Carol Peletier) and Norman Reedus (Daryl Dixon).

“I found out Melissa and Norman were going to be on the Talking Dead, and I really wanted to see the final episode, because there’s something so celebratory about it,” Emily said. “So even though I wasn’t completely caught up, I did watch the finale.”

This week, Robert Kirkman took to Twitter to officially announce the name of the new Walking Dead spin-off, previously only known as “Colbat” or “The Walking Dead: LA.” The show will be called “Fear the Walking Dead,” and it will debut this summer with a six episode mini-season, followed by a full length one in 2016. The first trailer for the show, starring Cliff Curtis and Kim Dickens, will debut after tonight’s 90-minute Walking Dead finale.

We should know a bit more about Fear the Walking Dead after the trailer, but for now, details are relatively scarce. The gist of the spin-off is that it takes place on literally the opposite end of the country as the original show, and at least at first, will focus on the point in time while Rick was in a coma, when the walker meltdown was in full swing. That signifies something of a return to traditional zombie fare like Dawn of the Dead, as this time in this universe we’re actually around for the literal “dawn.”

But even with the timelines askew, the producers have admitted that eventually the spin-off could catch up to The Walking Dead’s present day timeline, through various time skips, hops and jumps. But knowing what sort of speculation that would immediately spawn, both producer Gale Anne Hurd and series creator Robert Kirkman have gone out of their way to kill the idea that the two casts could ever meet.

AMC
AMC

The fifth season of AMC’s The Walking Dead has come to an end, and though there is an upcoming spin-off prequel series Fear The Walking Dead to look forward to, for now, the adventures of Rick, Daryl, Michonne, Glenn and all the rest have come to a close until next fall. Which makes this the perfect time to reflect on those characters, and actors, still with the show – and those who aren’t.

Like many shows with a high body count (Game of Thrones is a particular standout here as well), there has been a lot of turnover as far as actors on The Walking Dead are concerned. In fact, from the original group in season one, only the characters of Rick (Andrew Lincoln), Carl (Chandler Riggs), Glenn (Steven Yeun), Carol (Melissa McBride), and Daryl (Norman Reedus) remain, and of those, only Rick, Carl, and Glenn have been there for every outing. Over time we’ve seen fan favourites and hated characters alike fall, among them Dale, Andrea, Shane, Herschel, the Governor, Tyreese, and others. And as they fell, the actors who portrayed them – many extremely popular among the Walking Dead fanbase – have gone on their way.

Gone, but not forgotten. Lets take a look at ten things you (probably) didn’t know about the cast, past and present, of AMC’s The Walking Dead.

Can you blame her? Emily Kinney revealed EXCLUSIVELY to HollywoodLife.com that she stopped watching ‘The Walking Dead’ as soon as her beloved character, Beth, was tragically killed. Now, find out why!

Emily Kinney, 29, may be on The Flash now, but fans know her best as the sweet and kind-hearted Beth Greene from The Walking Dead. When her character met an untimely death during the show’s mid-season 5 finale, so did her DVR subscription to the show. Bummer!

Emily Kinney Stopped Watching ‘The Walking Dead’

If you were on a hit television show that shocked fans and cast members a like by killing you off, would you keep watching? Hm, probably not. So, you can’t blame Emily for cutting The Walking Dead out of her life once she was done filming.

“I stopped watching,” Emily told HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY at the 2015 Shorty Awards on April 20 in New York City. “I didn’t see my death, because I had my own experience, and I didn’t want to change what my experience of it was because it was so special to me.”

But, she couldn’t completely escape her connection to the show so easily. In fact, Emily revealed that even though she didn’t watch her mid-season finale death or the return episodes, she did watch the season five finale.

Take Our Poll

The Walking Dead Season 5’s brilliant finale episode left viewers wondering what’s in store for the Alexandrians, as Rick was given the OK to take the law into his own hands after a drunken Pete killed Reg, the husband of town leader Deanna. Will she give up all control of Alexandria and let Rick play judge, jury and executioner? We imagine that Morgan, who considers “all life precious”, will have something to say about Rick’s way of doing things. Will the pair clash over their differences now that they are reunited, or will they work together to strengthen the town? We’re hoping it’s the latter. Either way, we can expect to see a lot of The Walking Dead Season 6’s storyline revolve around the two long-lost friends, who will be the “spine of the season” according to executive producer Robert Kirkman. Season 5 also introduced fans to a new pack of bad guys: the Wolves. The season finale ended with a Wolf member looking at pictures of Rick, Carl and the others, leaving us curious to find out if the group will attack Rick and the gang in the Safe Zone.

Nine buildings in downtown Grantville, Georgia — where hit television drama The Walking Dead was filmed — are up for sale.

Grantville’s former mayor says the structures — virtually the entire downtown — are on the eBay online auction block until Friday in hopes of finding a buyer who can breathe new life into the town on the southern fringe of metro Atlanta.

Former mayor Jim Sells says the asking price for the buildings is for $680,000. Another offer of two additional buildings for a total price of $940,000 is also listed on eBay.

“What I really want is someone who will not only buy it, but put a lot of money into something that we can all be proud of down here,” Sells said.

Grantville, about 45 miles southwest of Atlanta, was featured prominently in The Walking Dead’s third season. In one episode, bodies of “walkers” were buried in a vacant lot under the brick archway remaining from a cotton mill building. Gunshots were fired from a nearby rooftop.

Fans began showing up in Grantville, as they have at other filming locations in nearby Senoia and Atlanta, to see the sites firsthand. Sells, who was Grantville’s mayor during that time period, began leading free weekly tours that have attracted fans from as far as Australia, Singapore and Brazil.

Sells says the auction’s end on Friday might not result in an immediate sale. He said there’s been a lot of interest, but he’s still searching for a serious buyer.

The President of the United States is the marquee name at the annual nerd prom but Barack Obama has some serious star power competition in the room at this weekend’s White House Correspondents’ Dinner. With Saturday Night Live‘s Cecily Strong as the lead jokester, the 101st dinner of the D.C. journalist organization will see cast members of ratings blockbusters The Walking DeadModern Family, Empire and Game Of Thrones in attendance on April 25 along with a two-time Oscar winner and Scandal’s Olivia Pope.

First In The Nation Republican Leadership Summit Held In New HampshireFox News Channel is certain to cause a stir in the Washington Hilton ballroom by inviting perpetual almost Presidential candidate Donald Trump this year. Like actor Tim Daly and some members of the Modern Family cast, this is a return visit for The Celebrity Apprentice boss. A guest of the Washington Post at the 2011 WHCD, Trump was ripped relentlessly by Obama and host Seth Meyers. No word if there is going to be a repeat performance but this year there’s also going to be a fictional female Secretary of State, a real life female ex-Secretary of State and a fictional female Commander-In-Chief at the tables – but no Hillary Clinton.

We’ll update with more names as we get them but here is the Hollywood contingent for the 2015 WHCD so far, plus the odd cabinet secretary and high ranking member of Congress or two.

The Walking Dead Andrew Lincoln

Cast members of AMC’s “The Walking Dead” recently attended a panel at Los Angeles’ Egyptian Theater to discuss their experiences on the show. Andrew Lincoln talked about wanting to play Norman Reedus‘ Daryl, while others reflected on death’s importance in the series. A slight tease for new characters in season 6 was also found at another source.

The details come to Design Trend via Deadline with added assistance from E! News.

A major highlight of “The Walking Dead” Egyptian Theater panel was the immense adoration for lead cast member Andrew Lincoln. The Rick Grimes actor was showered with praise from peers like Scott Gimple, Chad Coleman and Steven Yeun who were also present for the conversation.

That being said, the humble “Walking Dead” protagonist wasn’t about to accept compliments without dishing out a few kind words of his own. Prior to Chad Coleman’s late season 5 death as Tyreese, Lincoln said his colleague created “an acting performance that was like a master class” for the betterment of the series. Coleman returned the favor by telling the audience about a time when Andrew left a voicemail just to congratulate the Tyreese portrayer on a job well done. “That’s Andy Lincoln,” he said.

When asked if Lincoln would ever switch roles with his fellow cast mates, he casually pondered that Norman Reedus‘ Daryl would be one of his top choices. After all, the brooding loner character oftentimes has fewer lines than a frontrunner like Rick. Another possible reversal candidate was the late Hershel Greene, whom Andrew described as “cool as s-t.”

If you’ve ever wondered why pop culture seems obsessed with the zombie apocalypse, film makers Cris Macht and Ian Vacek may be able to shed some light on that.

The world premiere of their film “The Walkers Among Us” — a documentary about “The Walking Dead” fandom — is April 25 at the Hollywood Blvd Cinema in Woodridge. Red carpet, limo, zombies and all.

Blue Oyster Cult still 'Burnin For You'

“This being the only time to see ‘The Walkers Among Us’ on the big screen for its release, we’re pulling out all the stops for this event,” said Scott Potter of Hollywood Blvd Cinema. “You can see the film makers arrive in a limo to red carpet and then watch the premiere with them, which is an extra-special opportunity. We will have ‘The Walking Dead’ novel author Jay Bonansinga in our lobby signing books and meeting fans, and you can meet someone who has been on the television series.”

The meet and greets start at 10 a.m., while the film will premiere at noon.

“This will also be the first time we will have a live performance from a soundtrack artist at the premiere of a film,” Potter said. Guitarist Rob Hynes, featured in the documentary’s soundtrack, will be performing in the lobby.

Zombies from Nightmare of Chicago Street will be roaming as well, while guests can even transform into the undead thanks to makeup artists. “The Walking Dead” regular zombie extra Michelle Helmeczy will be present (and alive) for autographs and photo ops.

How can you tell when a Walking Dead bromance is legit? When two actors both share the same answer when asked what they’ll do if their characters are ever killed off the show. Last year, Norman Reedus (Daryl Dixon) said in an AMC doc, “If they kill me on the show I’ll probably, like, set my trailer on fire. They’ll probably have to call in a bunch of cops to escort me off the property ’cause I’ll be so pissed.” Fast forward to last night (April 20, 2015) and Andrew Lincoln (Rick Grimes) just said something similar during a panel screening at the Egyptian theater.

Andy was joined by co-stars Norman, Steven Yeun, Danai Gurira, Melissa McBride, Chad Coleman, Sonequa Martin-Green, and Michael Cudlitz; plus honchos Robert Kirkman, Scott Gimple, and Greg Nicotero.

The topic of deaths came up, and Andrew said (via Deadline), “It is inevitable that we’re all gonna get it at some point and the manner in which you deal with that is the mark of who you are.” He referenced Tyreese’s death in Season 5, Episode 9. “When I watched [Chad] in that episode, it was extraordinary. He gave an acting performance that was like a master class… And of course we’re all gonna get it, but there’s this culture on the show, and I think it’s unique, that as long as it serves the story, none of us mind.” The cast was asked if Andy spoke for all of them on this, so Andy added, “But don’t get me wrong, if they kill me off I’m gonna burn my trailer down.”

Season Six filming soon

by Sarah Fay Campbell

The Senoia City Council has approved the occasional closure of Gin Street for the upcoming filming of Season 6 of “The Walking Dead,” and approved a new base camp and equipment parking lot for the filming.

Mike Riley, location manger for Stalwart Films, appeared before the city council Monday night to request intermittent closures of Gin Street through the summer, and two temporarily parking lots near downtown.

Filming will continue inside the walled “Alexandria” site for season six, Riley said. However, there will be a need to do some filming outside the walls for certain episodes.

Riley said during certain scenes, there will be a “need to provide safety for our cast and crew and for the general public.”

“I cannot go into any great detail,” about those particular scenes, Riley said.

When the road is closed, it could be from about a half day to up to two days, or possibly even three days.

“Not every episode and not every week that we are there. There are weeks that we will not be on that location at all,” Riley said.

For some episodes, they may need to film outside the wail two or three days. One episode is set for filming May 15 to 28 and “we will be on that site for the entire episode.”

Emily Kinney is trading in her zombie survival skills for a scalpel! During the 2015 Shorty Awards, the “Walking Dead” actress, who previously portrayed the beloved character Beth Greene on the hit AMC series, shared an exciting update with the International Business Times regarding her next career endeavor.

Before slipping into the TimesCenter building to present during the 7th annual social media event, the 29-year-old actress confirmed to IBTimes that she’ll be starring in Season 2 of the of the medical drama “The Knick.”

“I’m definitely excited,” Kinney stated her eagerness to appear in the Cinemax series, which was renewed for a 10-episode sophomore season in July.

So, what role will the blond-haired beauty be taking on in the second season?

“I think they want the character to be a little bit of a surprise,” Kinney teased during the interview. Although she remained tight-lipped regarding her upcoming role, the actress did reveal that she “had a blast” during the two months she filmed for “The Knick.”

“It’s nice to shoot here in New York City,” she said, explaining how grateful she is to be involved in a show that’s close to her home. “When I usually shoot shows, I’m going to Georgia [for “The Walking Dead”] or “The Flash” is in Vancouver.” Kinney recently portrayed the evil Brie Larvan on the hit CW series, where she channeled her inner villain as the Bug-Eyed Bandit. “It’s been nice to wake up, make coffee in my own apartment and go to work.”
