Sarah Wayne Callies On Lori’s Fate in The Walking Dead

Warning: There are spoilers for The Walking Dead comic book in this post. Whether those will become spoilers for The Walking Dead TV show remains to be seen, but you’ve been warned.

If you’ve read the source material for The Walking Dead, then you know what happens to Lori. For those not in on the know, she and her newborn baby daughter are killed in the Gorvernor’s assault on the prison complex that they’re staying in. Any fan with a hint of detective skills would say they’re leading up to this after the reveal in season two’s finale of the prison and in the season 3 trailer where we meet the Governor and Woodbury. The one thing that doesn’t confirm this is how the series doesn’t 100% adapt the comic book, but actress Sarah Wayne Callies not only thinks it will happen she wants it to.

In an interview with THR about the series, she said: Frank Darabont and I actually — before he was tragically and unfairly removed from the show — we used to argue about it,” Callies says. “I argued that it was necessary to kill Lori and I feel very strongly that for all of the other deviations we may have from the comic book, killing Lori does something to Rick that is vital for the story and can’t be done any other way. I’ve said from the beginning, not only am I OK with Lori dying but I think she has to. I’ve played this character with an eye toward an end.

If she has her way, it sounds like we’ll get to see that very infamous panel from The Walking Dead that left so many readers in shock and surprise.
