The Walking Dead Alum, Scott Wilson turns 75 today!!! We here at Fan Fest News would love to wish him the vary happiest of birthdays. Scott played Hershel Greene from seasons 2-4.
Born in Thomasville, Georgia in 1942, Scott has 50+ film credits to his name. He made his feature film debut in In the Heat of the Night (1967). Other notable films include: In Cold Blood, The Great Gatsby, Pearl Harbor, Dead Man Walking, Monster and The Ninth Configuration, for which he received a Golden Globe nomination for Best Supporting Actor – Motion Picture in 1980.
In 2011, he was cast as our beloved Hershel Greene, father to Maggie Greene (Lauren Cohan) and Beth Greene (Emily Kinney). We were very saddened at his departure in the mid-season finale of season 4 at the hands of The Governor in the episode Too Far Gone.
Please join me once again in wishing Scott a Happy Birthday with many more to come! Remember to have your Tuesday’s spaghetti, today because it is Wednesday and that is what Hershel wanted. WE LOVE YOU SCOTT!!!!
