It might still be October, but it looks more like Movember in a recent post on the official “The Walking Dead” Twitter feed, as the show’s cast donned ludicrous orange mustaches to pay tribute to the idiosyncratic facial hair of Michael Cudlitz’s character Abraham Ford.
Ford’s death in the show’s Season 7 premiere might have been overshadowed by the grisly demise of another fan-favorite, but the ginger oaf has a sizable following of his own, and it was specifically for them that actor recorded a brief ‘thank you’ to mark his “Walking Dead” departure.
The video lasts for little more than a minute, but it’s cut to include some touching moments from Abraham’s journey as Cudlitz expresses the hope that he was able to give viewers some laughs even as he and and the rest of the cast and crew “scared the crap out of you.”
The actor also reflected that “Abraham’s story was told, and we move on, new characters come in and we tell news stories — that’s why you guys are on the edge of your seat every week,” before adding cryptically “I’m not really going away.”
Whether or not this means we might have some further glimpses of Abraham in coming weeks — perhaps in the form of flashbacks or fantasy — is unclear, but it is probably just Cudlitz’s way of saying that while is character is dead, he is very much alive.
Starring Andrew Lincoln, Chandler Riggs, Norman Reedus, Melissa McBride, Lauren Cohan, Lennie James, Danai Gurira, Sonequa Martin-Green and Jeffrey Dean Morgan, “The Walking Dead” airs Sundays at 9 p.m. ET/PT on AMC.
