Lauren Cohan: The Walking Dead Actress Set For Stardom?
Posted by Adam
LAUREN Cohan is convinced she’ll become the star of AMC’s The Walking Dead.
The actress — who joined the thriller in Season 2, playing feisty farmer’s daughter Maggie Greene — believes she’ll be made into a household name, after she became one of the main characters when producers killed off a majority of her costars.
“The cast members always dread getting new scripts because they know it could be the episode where they meet their zombie maker,” said a show source.
“Lauren feared suffering the same fate. But she’s survived into Season 4, and with the creep-fest drawing record ratings, she’s convinced she’s not going to be a casualty any time soon.
“When Laurie Holden, who played sharp-shooting blonde Andrea, got killed off at the end of Season 3, Lauren was left as the show’s resident glamor girl – and she knows it.
“Lauren is a guy’s dream – a gorgeous woman who can kick butt.
“She’s been going on talk shows to increase her visibility and build up her fan base.
“Lauren’s the show’s resident sex symbol now, and she’s playing it for all it’s worth.”
