“The Walking Dead” fans can take a little solace in knowing that Negan himself was clueless about his victim until recently.
Jeffrey Dean Morgan, who plays the new villain on the upcoming season of the AMC series, says that he was kept in the dark about the Season 6 finale just like everyone else.
“I certainly didn’t know. I’ve seen interviews where Norman has said, ‘I know,’ but I honestly don’t know that anybody really knew what was going to happen until the first script came out,” Morgan told Entertainment Weekly. “Maybe during the summer people found out some stuff. I didn’t find out whom we were going to kill until I saw the first script coming back this year.”
“I think by the time October rolls around all those people who are like, ‘I’m never watching “Walking Dead” again. I feel cheated,’ they’re going to be the first ones lined up in front of their television,” he said. “And I’ll say this, you have to be careful what you wish for, audience, because you’re going to get those answers answered and more, and you’re probably not going to be happy with it.”
“The Walking Dead” returns on Oct. 23.
