Sarah Wayne Callies talks ‘Walking Dead’ and shockers SPOILERS

“The Walking Dead” season 3 has been a rollercoaster ride of non-stop action and chaos.

The Lori storyline, featuring actress Sarah Wayne Callies, takes a dramatic turn and shocking twist. Needless to say, media outlets were quick to track her down for some comments.

“Lori’s death is very unique among the deaths we’ve had on The Walking Dead, because it’s one that she’s chosen. It’s an interesting tone because it’s not surrounded by quite the same level of crisis and panic, although she’s clearly in a situation where things are going to go badly. The most important thing to her is that Rick (Andrew Lincoln) not see her as a walker. She all but says to Carl, ‘Take care of your daddy.'”

This moment had been in the works for a very long, long time says Callies.

Frank [Darabont] and I talked a lot about the necessity of Lori dying, and we fought about it. I had spoken to Frank about that at a certain point and he goes: ‘I don’t need to kill you.’ And I said: ‘With all due respect, sir, yes you do.’ When I spoke to Glen [Mazzara] in November of last year, there was a different timeline. And when I talked with them in March, they had moved it to episode four. I don’t know why. It felt like a whiny question [to ask]. All I said was: ‘Yes, sir. Send me the script. I’ll make it the best that I can.’

Now what will happen to the group?

“I think it certainly says that Carl is a force to be reckoned with. It’s very telling that Lori isn’t worried about Carl. Her concern through that entire scene was Rick. Lori’s death is about Rick. It’s important for what happens to Rick later in the season that he replay that scene between the two of them at the end of episode two, over and over in his head and go, ‘Why didn’t I tell her I loved her? Why didn’t I say ‘I forgive you’? Why didn’t I say ‘I’m sorry?’ And also how caring for a newborn changes the group. Lori’s pregnancy made everything in the group more acute, because they couldn’t run forever. And now there’s this pressure to find a place to be safe.”
