The Walking Dead 304 Killer Within Sarah Wayne Callies

‘The Walking Dead’: AMC Sits Down With Sarah Wayne Callies (Lori Grimes)

The Walking Dead‘s Sarah Wayne Callies, who plays Lori Grimes on the hit show, recently sat down with AMC to talk about her character’s fate. Caution: If you haven’t seen this week’s episode, “Killer Within,” don’t proceed. Major spoilers ahead.

As viewers of this week’s episode know, we lost two, possibly three, members of Rick’s group. Actress Sarah Wayne Callies sat down with AMC to talk about her character Lori’s demise on the show last night.

She recounted what it was like to watch her character die on the show:

“It was interesting because we shot [Episode 304] in June. There was a whole emotional process of getting it together and shooting it, grieving and saying goodbye to everyone. That process was more or less complete a while ago. And then I sat down and watched it! I was nervous because I was expecting it to hurt, but I was so proud of Chandler [Riggs] and proud to say I was a part of helping to build that show … Pride and gratitude were what I came away with.”

She also recounts on learning her character would be dying this season and putting that news into perspective:

“I was at a refugee camp in Thailand in February. I came back and got off the plane and basically did an interview right away. I got off of that call and got one from Glen Mazzara, who said we’re going to lose Lori. It was an interesting sequence of events because my mind was not on the show at all; it was wrapped up with issues about medical care and gender safety … I think it put it in its proper perspective: which is that it’s very hard and very sad and it’s a television show. I’m grateful I got to do this for two and a half seasons.”
