'The Walking Dead' New Character Posters Released, Andrew Lincoln Discusses Finale

By Matt O'Bryant

AMC's The Walking Dead returns this Sunday night, and in case you forget, which is highly unlikely. Entertainment Weekly has released a whole batch of new character posters featuring many of the shows best. Along with the posters, the magazine also spoke with the main star of the show Andrew Lincoln aka Rick, who discussed being "shocked" after reading the script for the season 6 finale.

I felt sick to my stomach when I read the script. It was the first day in the whole six years of working on The Walking Dead that I was late for work because I woke up in the middle of the night and I couldn’t get back to sleep. I was so angry and frustrated and I felt sick. And that was just after reading it.
— Andrew Lincoln

EW also got to chat with Lauren Cohan, who plays Maggie on the show, and she revealed that the season finale was the toughest episode she's ever had to shoot.

[Hearing] the word ‘finale’ gives me a physical reaction because it’s the hardest day on set that I’ve ever had in my life. I never even imagined that as an actor you could have that experience. It’s one of the most raw experiences that I think any of us have ever had. Andy talks about being late to work; I didn’t want to go to work that day. It took a really, really long time for everybody to feel okay again after the finale, let’s put it that way.
— Lauren Cohen
