"The Walking Dead" star Melissa McBride discussed Carol's greatest weapon, her upcoming confrontation with Morgan (Lennie James), preparing Alexandria for survival and more season six details during an interview with The Hollywood Reporter.
Though she and Morgan haven't shared much screentime on the show, that's about to change in season six. "It's going to be really interesting to see, because they haven't really interacted yet," McBride shared. "I don't know what he's going to do with these people. He's like, 'Life is precious.' [But] hold up. Well, of course it is, but a life that's getting ready to kill you? Your life is more precious than that one."
"She's adaptable -- and one of her weapons is adaptability," she explained, adding that Carol's ability to put on an act also helps her survive the zombie apocalypse. "Each [personality] is necessary so far, but they're both who she is. And each one is aware of the other. It's beautiful and complicated, but so simple. This is a tool. This is one of her weapons. It's the mask."
"Season six starts with Alexandria's safety shattered by multiple threats," she continued. "To make it, the people of Alexandria will need to catch up with our survivors' hardness while many of Rick's people will need to take a step back from the violence and pragmatism they've needed to embrace. These reversals won't happen easily, or without conflict. But now Rick's group is fighting for something more than survival. They're fighting for their home, and they will defend that at any cost, against any threat, even if that threat comes from within."
