Former cast member from The Walking Dead, Laurie Holden, gave some insight into their thoughts and reflections regarding their characters from the show.
Holden was asked if she was happy with the way her character was killed off the show and if she could change anything about her death what would she change?
Holden had a good bit to say in regards to what she would change about her character, if she was able to do so.
“I wish I was the one to kill the Governor. I think it’s total nonsense that I didn’t. They messed up on that narrative.”
Let’s be honest, Andrea on the television series got dealt a bad hand compared to her comic book counterpart. Holden then said:
“It was a big mistake. It’s not like I couldn’t pull it off. I think the stuff they wrote about Andrea and the Governor was complete and utter nonsense. I did the best that I could to tell that narrative and to justify where Andrea kept her heart and I love Scott Gimple for giving me a gorgeous death with redemption so that you understood that she wasn’t a victim and that she died on her own terms. But I think that there was so much beautiful narrative that was lost. She should have been there a long time and been the leader that [Robert] Kirkman created in the comic book. It’s a shame but, it’s life. It’s a TV show. You know what I mean? They change things. It is what it is.”
