Scott Wilson was photographed twice by Norman Reedus (Daryl Dixon) off-camera on the set of AMC’s “The Walking Dead”
The Walking Dead Season 4 photo at right was taken the day after the first one. It seems to show Wilson’s character, Hershel Greene, covered in more blood.
As we approach the season 4 premiere of The Walking Dead on October 13th, rumours are flying about the body count of some long-time cast members. Beyond the suggestions in the article excerpt (below) about rumours of Hershel Greene’s demise there are also two other stark facts: 1. Hershel is way past his comic book expiration date. Don’t get me wrong I love Scott Wilson in the role and I’m going to be heartbroken if they kill him off, but showrunner Scott Gimple and others associated with TWD’s creation and production have assured fans that there will be more main characters dying. Certainly, they have not been reticent about offing them in the first three seasons. Further, 2. showrunner Gimple is known as a fan of The Walking Dead comics prior to the television show’s inception. That could have him leaning toward offing Hershel though (spoiler) Beth (Emmy Kinney) is going to have to go too, if that the route he is taking.
Truth is, that all of this is speculation until it turns up on the screen. Lori Grime’s (Sarah Wayne Callies) death in season three was supposed to include her being shown as a zombie–but that never made it into the episodes that were broadcast. However, it has now been confirmed with the upcoming release of the Walking Dead Season 3 DVD’s deleted scenes that Sarah Wayne Callies did indeed appear as a zombie—one that made out with Rick–but the scene was pulled before we ever saw it.
Remember back in episode 10 (“Home”) when Rick had himself a tender moment with a vision of his former wife in a white dress out on a bridge past the prison yard? Well, a new deleted scene shows how the scene was originally shot — and it seems that tender moment actually turned quite terrifying. After making out for a bit — because who doesn’t love making out with hallucinations from time to time — Rick pulls back to see that his beautiful wife is now a significantly less kissable zombie version of his beautiful wife. That’s right, Sarah Wayne Callies got zombified!

The Walking Dead Season 4 is already a guaranteed monster hit with millions of fans are eagerly awaiting the new season of the popular AMC series. Adding to the edge-of-their-seats excitement, recent spoilers have pointed to rumors that a number of major characters are to be killed off the show in season 4.
Throughout it’s run, TWD has been ruthless in its treatment of some of its most popular characters, with Sophia, Dale, Shane, T-Dog, Lori, Merle and Andrea, among many others be killed off one by one.
Therefore, it should come as no surprise to fans that script writers are planning to kill off more characters when the show commences for Season 4 beginning October 13.
According to the latest possible spoilers, Greene family patriarch, Hershel, will be one of the first main characters to bite it in Season 4.
The rumors seem to have been fueled by actor Norman Reedus, who posted a series of Instagram photos; and those along with fans using their general knowledge about cast rituals, have put two and two together.
Towards the end of July, Reedus, who plays Daryl Dixon, posted some photos of a dinner he attended with some other cast members.
However, sharp-eyed fans noticed that the photo contained both Jon Bernthal (dead Shane) and Sarah Wayne Callies (dead Lori).
The photo has led to speculation that the cast were holding a “death dinner,” gathering together a number of past cast members who had been killed off on the show. VIEW the PHOTO
Michonne: Back in the Saddle for Season 4
“I’m going to tell you this and I’m going to regret saying this, but I’m proud of myself, O.K? Because I learned how to ride a damn horse and I didn’t know how to ride a horse, and I was like, ‘I’ve got to know how to ride a horse for the show, and there’s no ifs, ands, buts, or maybes about it. So, I’ve got to figure this mess out.’ And when I got on that thing, I thought I was going to be able to handle it. I said, ‘I’m going to be able to handle this thing!’ I thought it would be fine, and then I got on it and I was like, this is really not easy. This is not easy. This is a huge beast and it has very sharp instincts. It really expects you to know what you’re doing or it’s not going to listen to you. And, it’s bigger than you and stronger than you. And, you’re really high off the ground.
“So I had a lot of adjusting to do.”
