We posted some photos yesterday regarding the new characters on the show, but here’s more The Walking Dead season 6 photos, plus one incredibly enjoyable and humorous photo showing some cheeky mischief with Norman Reedus, Andrew Lincoln, and Melissa McBride.
During the photo shoot for the cover, Reedus was being particularly mischievous with co-star and buddy Andrew Lincoln. Entertainment Weekly picture editor Michelle Romero explains:
“EW was photographing Andrew Lincoln, Melissa McBride, and Norman Reedus outside the former prison yard from season 3 and 4 of The Walking Dead. Lincoln and Reedus were behind McBride and Lincoln started laughing and was unable to maintain any actor composure in front of photographer Dan Winters’ camera. Lincoln NEVER breaks character and always maintains his American accent, even on a photo shoot. So this giggle fest was so strange to witness. Lincoln yelled for Reedus to stop and Reedus shouted, ‘Why? No one’s gonna see this!’”
After a little investigating, we realized Reedus had been trying to hold Lincoln’s hand in the photos behind McBride’s back. Reedus knows how to make a great picture and also likes to give great imagery to his fans, so I asked the trio if we could shoot them from behind, and then I told Melissa McBride to turn her head towards the camera. They all complied, and then Reedus and Lincoln gave us something a little extra—taking their bromance to a whole other level. I love this picture because it just happened organically. Everyone needs a cheeky Norman Reedus.”
