'The Walking Dead' actor Scott Wilson dies at 76

Scott Wilson

Scott Wilson

But for a younger generation Scott will forever be known as Hershel Greene, the widowed farmer who was in the show from 2011 until 2014. The announcement was made about an hour before the news of Wilson's death began to spread. His other films include 1976's "The Great Gatsby", "The Right Stuff", and "Dead Man Walking". Rest in paradise, Scott.

Wilson appeared in several seasons of the show before his character died but he remained busy after his role on "The Walking Dead" came to an end.

This got us thinking about Danai Gurira and her work on The Walking Dead and in Black Panther playing two iconic, interesting, fantastic characters.

"Scott Wilson was simply the finest actor and more importantly the finest and most decent man I ever knew".

According to TMZ, Wilson died from complications of leukemia. Variety reports that he had already filmed the scenes.

Our hearts go out to all of Scott Wilson's family, friends and fellow Walking Dead co-stars during this tragic time.

A spokesman for AMC said that Scott Wilson "will always be remembered as a great actor". "Scott will be missed". Wilson also earned a Global Globe nomination in 1980 for best supporting actor in "The Ninth Configuration".

Wilson joined AMC's zombie smash in Season 2 and was written out in the middle of Season 4. "Don't make me cry", the actor added to a jammed packed venue.

But, on a more serious note, we know she will continue to promote unbelievable causes and use her platform for good, and we love her for that.

It remains to be seen how Sasha factors in, although Rick did act as a mentor for her and she was also Maggie's close friend and close confidant.
