Melissa McBride on Season 5

Entertainment Weekly continues their spree of great pre-Season 5 coverage with another new interview! This time, Melissa McBride talks about Carol this season and how S5 will have a whole new energy…!

I’m curious about Carol and her mental and emotional state as we’re going to see her in season 5 because she went through some serious stuff last season with the Karen situation, and Rick abandoning her, and then the whole Lizzie deal. How is she holding up after all that in terms of coming to terms with the person she has become?

I think she’s holding up pretty well considering how compounded these events were, one right after another since this whole thing started. The characters are adapting to that kind of world where you just can’t get a break. It’s interesting to see how they’re becoming someone new almost under the weight of this world. I don’t know how anyone could get through what she’s done and not be affected by it. It’s going to be great to see exactly how she is affected by it. Will she want to check out and go, “Oh this is too much for me,” or will love conquer all and caring for her group and continuing in this world to fight? I love the questions that this show brings. We fight so hard, holding out for something. What? What are they holding out for? Why? It’s so brutal. I love it.

You guys did your smaller stories in the back of the last half of last season and now it seems the band is getting back together, at least for a little while. Tell me about that.

It’s a whole other different kind of energy when we’re all there together. It’s just great to be among the big family again because you really do start to miss them if you’re doing the smaller episodes and everybody else is doing the smaller episodes. Your time in between seeing them is a little sad gap, but I do appreciate the small episodes to really dig into the independent storyline and see the development of these characters. And to see the intimacy of both is kind of breathtaking to me. But, it’s good to be back with the group too. It’s a whole other energy.

In season 1 we had this urban environment that we saw with downtown Atlanta, but since then it’s been suburban for the most part. I know you guys are going to be in the city for a lot of this season and it’s going to give it a different feel that the show hasn’t had for a while. Tell me about that.

I’m excited about all the different locations we have. It’s fun to be on the road like that. You feel the journey when they’re moving and you appreciate the pit stops along the way because the journey is so hard. The elements, there’s so much new texture, new feel, threats, knowing that they’re going back into territories that they were running from. I’m really loving the locations.

    “They are. I don’t like spoilers. I don’t like things being spoiled. It’s funny how people send me things on Twitter with spoiler pictures. They’re proud, they’re happy they found out, and I’m like “Oh, man, no — I don’t want to see that.” I just put #nospoiler on my on my Twitter profile, but they send me that stuff. It’s fun at the end of the day, but when they’re running around trying to catch stuff I’m like eehhhh. You can sometimes see them in the periphery when you’re acting a scene. It’s all the more focus required, but it’s great fun. It’s fun that they’re just so invested and involved. It’s certainly different than being at the prison. Being at the prison is very comfortable. It’s nice being on the road like that and out in the open because even just that threat that you’re being seen can forge the day ahead, trying to hide.”

    AMEN Melissa!

    I wonder if the Carol will fall to insanity like in the comics? She has gone through a lot!
