Fans of the comic on which “The Walking Dead” is based weren’t too surprised by the demise of a major character last night, but the “how” did catch us a bit off guard. Here’s a Q&A with Sarah Wayne Callies (Lori) discussing the death, a secret tradition of the cast, and more.

Q: That was a powerful episode! What was it like to watch your character meet her end?

A: It was interesting because we shot [Episode 4] in June. There was a whole emotional process of getting it together and shooting it, grieving and saying goodbye to everyone. That process was more or less complete a while ago. And then I sat down and watched it! I was nervous because I was expecting it to hurt, but I was so proud of Chandler [Riggs] and proud to say I was a part of helping to build that show. I think Lori’s death did justice to that; she was a remarkable and powerful woman, and she was given a remarkable and powerful death. Pride and gratitude were what I came away with.

Q: When did you find out that this season would be Lori’s last?

A: I was at a refugee camp in Thailand in February. I came back and got off the plane and basically did an interview right away. I got off of that call and got one from Glen Mazzara, who said we’re going to lose Lori. It was an interesting sequence of events because my mind was not on the show at all; it was wrapped up with issues about medical care and gender safety in this refugee camp. I think it put it in its proper perspective: which is that it’s very hard and very sad and it’s a television show. I’m grateful I got to do this for two and a half seasons.

Q: After you left the set in Atlanta, was it difficult to keep Lori’s death a secret?

A: Most of what I told people was true, which was that this season has such a big cast that it takes place in two locations — and every character has time off. But I was also deliberately misleading people…There have been a lot of questions that I’ve had to answer really creatively. I’m really relieved that I can stop doing that now.

Q: Did you do anything in particular to put your character to rest?

A: We started having death dinners for everyone who got killed off the show beginning in Season 1. After some one’s last episode, all the actors would go out to dinner together and raise a glass to them. Those dinners became a big tradition. We’re a bigger cast so we have to be a bit more private. Steven came up to me during Episode 1 this season and he said, “I don’t think you should have to do your own death dinner,” and he said he’d do it for me. And I said, “Wow, that’s incredibly sweet.” And he came up to me a week later and said, “How do you do it?” And I said, “You find a restaurant that has a private room and you tell them that you’re throwing a birthday party.” And he kept coming up to me and was like, “But which restaurant?” It ended up being, adorably, twice as much work! The whole cast came though and I said a farewell.

Q: Looking back, what are some favorite memories from being on the show?

A: One of my favorite moments was watching Andy Lincoln drive! I think he got his license about a year before we started the show. And he’s English. Watching Andy try and drive the Cherokee was hilarious. At a certain point we had to pull it over because green flames were coming out of the hood. He’d never really get it into gear because the labels that showed you what gear you were in were gone. In a late episode last season, Lori is on the porch while Rick and Glenn are leaving to go after Hershel. I’ve said goodbye to Rick and he’s supposed to drive away, but he couldn’t get that thing into gear! He was just staring daggers at me.

Q: Was there anything about playing a pregnant woman that was similar to the experience of being pregnant?

A: The belly — the pregnancy rig — was a trip. No matter what I had for breakfast, when I put that belly on I was starving, every time. And people just knew eventually and they would have a chicken sandwich ready for me. They had the belly in foam originally, but I told them to put the fifteen pounds in — the way a baby would weigh — so I don’t have to act it. It jacked up my back pretty good. But playing a pregnant woman is way easier because you can take it off.

Synapse’s Suspiria 4K Restoration Gets a Release Date

Published

on

Earlier this year, we wrote about Synapse Films’ Suspiria 4K restoration and how it was available for pre-order. The weird catch was that there was no release date confirmed and that pre-orders would go out sometime in December 2017. Today that changes as we can confirm that the 3-disc special edition Blu-ray collection will come out December 19th, just in time for Christmas but a little late for Hanukkah. Any chance we can have one extra night this year?

Restored over three years, Synapse has been working tirelessly to create the ultimate version of Dario Argento’s 1977 classic supernatural horror film, which has since gone on to become one of the most recognized and lauded titles in the genre. This cut has been overseen and approved by Luciano Tovoli, the Director of Photography on the film.

Pre-orders are still available via Synapse Films’ website.
