For the first time in a long time, The Walking Dead gave fans a sex scene they haven’t been able to stop talking about. As it turns out, that scene would have ended a bit differently if it wasn’t for Walking Dead stars Andrew Lincoln (Rick Grimes) and Danai Gurira (Michonne).
According to a recent interview with TVline.com, Lincoln commented on how that scene was supposed to end based on the original script by Angela Kang and Corey Reed.
As the actor explains, Angela Kang and Corey Reed’s original script called for an au naturel Michonne to “cover herself” with a sheet upon jumping out of bed. “Danai said, ‘No, she wouldn’t. She’d go for her sword.’ And I said, ‘Yeah. And Rick would go for his gun. And we’d both be naked.’
“So we campaigned for the butt-crack shot [at the end],” Lincoln adds, proudly. “That wasn’t in the script. We both said, ‘If we’re going to do it, let’s do it.’”
Thankfully the actors on The Walking Dead know their characters better than the writers. Rick and Michonne always go for their weapons, even when they’re in… precarious positions.
