‘Walking Dead’ actor Markice Moore hospitalized after suicide attempt

The Walking Dead actor Markice Moore has been hospitalized for a suicide attempt, The Hollywood Reporter has confirmed. Moore was found Tuesday morning and his said to be recovering.

Moore, 28, was found unresponsive in his home Woodland Hills and taken directly to the hospital and placed on a psychiatric hold for 72 hours. His grandmother’s recent passing played into to his mental state and Moore has stated that he regrets his move.

Markice Moore as Andrew The Walking Dead“Mr. Moore is focused on getting the help he needs and moving forward with his life to live it to the fullest,” the actor’s rep told THR in a statement. “He has a bright future ahead of him that he is looking forward to.

“At this time we ask that you respect his privacy while he is taking time to heal and keep Markice and his family in your prayers,” the statement continued.

Moore played Andrew during season 3 of the popular AMC show. Andrew was one of the criminals inside of the prison when Rick’s group arrived. The character was killed during the aftermath of T-Dog’s death.

Walking Dead Wiki notes: “….walkers begin to flood the prison, the prison’s alarms are activated, and Rick, Daryl and Oscar go to shut them down before more walkers arrive. While Daryl is busy holding a door shut, and Rick and Oscar are shutting the alarms down, Andrew appears, revealing that he is the mysterious figure and then tries to kill Rick with an axe, but misses. It is revealed that Andrew survived the encounter with the walkers that Rick had left him in and ultimately set in motion the events that led to the walkers invading the prison, which ended up killing T-Dog and causing Lori to give birth and die in the process.

Rick then attacked Andrew, and the two then began to fight. Rick’s gun was dropped during the scuffle, and was picked up by Oscar. Andrew yelled for Oscar to kill Rick, which would allow them to take their prison back. Oscar, however, turned the gun on Andrew, and shot him in the head, killing him.”
