According to Frank Darabontwho was executive producer and showrunner of The Walking Deadthe arc of the character Andrea, lived by the actress Laurie Holdenoriginally it would be very different.
In an interview with SlashFilm, Darabont said that things would have been different for Andrea had he stayed on as showrunner for the series. THE AMC fired Darabont as he planned the second season.
“Laurie’s role in The Walking Dead it was planned by me to have a substantial character arc that never happened. She would go from being a mentally disturbed, super self-absorbed, severely traumatized and angry girl to the opposite end of the spectrum: your most trusted soldier, a sharpshooter and a grown woman who becomes fully dedicated to self-sacrifice and protecting the group. ”.
With the spotlight on Andrea, other characters would have been explored in different ways. He explained
“And her relationship with Dale would blossom into a very deep situation from May to December, a real marriage based on deep and lasting feelings and respect. I look for characters and situations based on confusing and complicated feelings, as happens in life. And no, she was never intended to be Rick’s love interest, as I read somewhere. She was never meant to be thrown away like zombie food. Neither did Dale, for that matter. Neither was Glenn.”
The first season of The Walking Dead introduced audiences to Rick Grimes (Andrew Lincoln) and other survivors of a zombie apocalypse, including Lori (Sarah Wayne Callies), Glenn (Steven Yeun), Daryl (Norman Reedus) and Andrea (Holden).
Andrea at first didn’t seem like the most suited person to survive a zombie apocalypse, but after the impact she had with her sister’s death, she became one of the most formidable walker killers. And for Darabont she would go much further.
