Lauren Cohan as Maggie on 'The Walking Dead'

Did you know that Lauren Cohan, (Maggie) on The Walking Dead has a British accent in real life? I would never have guessed. In an interview with AMC, she said that to get past the differences, she focuses on

“the difference between the British “O” and the Southern “O.” You can get the vibe of it pretty easily, but then you have to really start thinking about the idiosyncrasies.”

She added a bit about being on-set, with zombies out and about between takes. Apparently if there are a lot of them, they give the zombie extras their own room to have lunch in… something about

“It’s a bit disgusting. You don’t believe they can make people look like that!”

In case some of you are scratching your head trying to figure out where you might have seen the beautiful Lauren Cohan, well, here’s the short genre series list where she has made recurring guest appearances:

Supernatural as Bela Talbot,

Chuck as Vivian &

The Vampire Diaries as Rose.

Lauren was born in 1982, in Philadelphia and lived in Cherry Hill Township, New Jersey during her childhood before moving to the United Kingdom.

She graduated from the University of Winchester / King Alfred’s College where she studied Drama and English Literature.


IronE Singleton

IronE Singleton in 'The Walking Dead'IronE has shown up in a few TV shows in one-up guest spots but has more of a silver screen focus, where he’s been in Seeking Justice, The Blind Side and Remember the Titans.

You’ll get a chance to see him in the 2012 movie, A Box for Rob. But now that he’s appeared in The Walking Dead, well, he’s almost become a household name these days.

On the set, AMC chatted him up and he had a few things to offer up from his perspective while working on this record-setting cable series:

IronE had an interesting perspective on the differences of seasons, between one and two, where in season one, there was a town and a camp and the cast were sort of segregated to their own filming spots… but in season two, the cast was all together. He felt that,

“Everybody is there together this season and that right there has brought us a lot closer as a group.”

He said he misses Merle and if he ever came back, he thinks that would be,

“some serious drama I think people would be talking about for a long time.”

He said he tends to do a lot of charity work, has three kids whom he won’t let watch The Walking Dead.
