Laurie Holden defends her ‘Walking Dead’ character and decisions SPOILER ALERT

The Walking Dead star Laurie Holden has defended her character Andrea’s decision not to kill The Governor (David Morrissey) at the end of ‘I Ain’t a Judas’.

Andrew was told of The Governor’s treachery while visiting her old friends at the prison in ‘I Ain’t a Judas’, but ultimately chose not to exact revenge when she returned to Woodbury.

In an interview with TV Guide, Holden stressed that Andrea did not spare The Governor out of love.

“Let me just be clear, it was not out of love at all,” she insisted. “So when the fans go nuclear, just so you know, that was not a, ‘Oh, he’s so handsome while he’s sleeping and I have feelings for him’.”

Holden went on to explain that Andrea’s reservations stem from her conflicted feelings about taking a human life, even after killing countless zombies.

“I think that when she looks down at him and she’s about to do it, her better nature, her heart and her higher self comes in and says, ‘OK, there’s got to be another way. He was a father; he loved his wife. There’s got to be a way that I can make peace’,” Holden explained.

“You’re going to see that that is what propels her. She’s trying to figure out a way to save the people, not have any bloodshed and do so in a rational, peaceful way, just like Dale did with Randall in season two.”

Holden previously suggested that Andrea has chosen to stay in Woodbury out of loyalty to the innocent town residents.

The Walking Dead continues on Sundays on AMC.
