‘The Walking Dead’ star Laurie Holden talks Andrea, the two groups, The Governor

Season 3 of The Walking Dead came to pivotal point with Andrea who visited her fellow survivors in the prison before returning to the arms of the Governor. Actress Laurie Holden talked with Access Hollywood in an article published Saturday about her character and the bind she is now in.

“It’s great storytelling because it’s not what you expected. It’s not what Andrea expected. And to shoot the scene where I’m going in expecting to come home and embrace my family and have them throw me to the ground and frisk me and get in my face and accuse me of all of these things, it was tough, and it was a few scenes of it and it was over a few days… I know that they all love me. ‘The Walking Dead’ cast — we’re all a family and that’s why they were hugging me at the end because I think they felt so bad.”

The awkward silence between Danai Gurira (Michonne) and her character was hard for the actress.

“The beauty of ‘The Walking Dead’ and the beauty of being on a television show for a while, is that, it’s your backstory, it’s part of what you are, it’s what you carry with you every day. And Danai and I built such a back story with each other off screen and what little time we had on screen, we both had real clear points of view and were carrying a lot of hurt on that day. That scene, I haven’t watched it, but it broke my heart because there’s nothing worse than hearing that your best friend feels betrayed by you.”

Audiences have responded with disgust as Andrea kisses The Governor, crawling into bed and not well…

“I think that he makes her sick and I think that she thinks that she can go through with it and so she tries to play him and then, at the end of the day, she wakes up. I mean, that was not something she enjoyed. That was (laughs)… that was taking one for the team. She basically was taking Carol’s advice, but at the end of the day, when she woke up and stood over his bed with the knife, her sense of humanity, her conscience, her moral fortitude got in the way and she just could not do it.”
