Walking Dead: Laurie Holden says ‘Andrea doesn’t love The Governor’
Walking Dead star Laurie Holden has recently come out to defend her characters recent story arc concerning her characters decision not to kill the Governor.
In a recent episode of the show Andrea was told about the Governor’s treachery, but chose not to end him.
In an interview with TV Guide, Holden stressed that Andrea did not spare The Governor out of love.
“Let me just be clear, it was not out of love at all,” she insisted. “So when the fans go nuclear, just so you know, that was not a, ‘Oh, he’s so handsome while he’s sleeping and I have feelings for him’.”
Holden went on to explain that Andrea’s reservations stem from her conflicted feelings about taking a human life, even after killing countless zombies.
“I think that when she looks down at him and she’s about to do it, her better nature, her heart and her higher self comes in and says, ‘OK, there’s got to be another way. He was a father; he loved his wife. There’s got to be a way that I can make peace’,” Holden explained.
She added: “You’re going to see that that is what propels her. She’s trying to figure out a way to save the people, not have any bloodshed and do so in a rational, peaceful way, just like Dale did with Randall in season two.”
The Walking Dead continues in the US on Sundays on AMC. The series airs in the UK on Fridays on FOX.
