THE Walking Dead’s Samantha Morton has revealed the ‘weird’ truth behind Alpha’s doomed romp with Negan.
The leader of the Whisperers got hot and heavy with Negan (Jeffrey Dean Morgan) in a recent episode.
Recalling filming the scenes, Samantha told Entertainment Weekly: “I didn’t want to get bitten by any bugs, so I was just like bug sprayed, and all of that, and it’s just so lovely to create.
“I don’t know. I’ve done a lot of stuff like that anyway, in my career, a lot of those kinds of things. I don’t know, it was just fine.
“I don’t watch what I do, so maybe in the future I will look back and go, ‘That was a bit weird.’
“But when you’re in it, you’re just getting on with it.”
Alpha came to regret letting her guard down with Negan, after he duped her into thinking he had found her daughter Lydia only to slit her throat and deliver her zombified head to Carol in the most recent episode.
Speaking about her character’s death, Samantha, 42, said: “She definitely thought that she had a new leader in Negan when she realized that Lydia wasn’t going to become another Alpha.
“She was thinking about in her mind some suicide pact, that Negan would take over because she can’t trust Beta in that way, that he couldn’t become the leader.
“She’s always known that about him. He doesn’t have it in him to be a leader, but Negan could be a leader of the Whisperers.
“But then it doesn’t happen that way, and she only finds out in that last moment when she turns and the room’s empty.
“It’s okay, she gets it because she’s not afraid of death. I mean, seriously, not afraid of death.
“The sad thing for Alpha in that moment is that she didn’t get to see her daughter.”
The Walking Dead continues on AMC on Sundays in the US and airs on FOX a day later in the UK.
