Towards the end of Season 3 of The Walking Dead, Maggie Greene (Lauren Cohan) and Glenn Rhee (Steven Yeun) got engaged. It wasn’t exactly a surprise since the lovebirds were clearly smitten with one another, but their declaration of love certainly brought a glimmer of hope to the cold, walker-filled world of TWD.
But now that we’re onto Season 4, what’s an engaged couple to do? Have sex, of course! Mags had a pregnancy scare in Episode 1 — and we’re still convinced she’s got a bun in the oven — but apparently there’s some steamy lovin’ to come!
During an appearance on Larry King Now, Lauren and Steven discussed the intimate scenes their characters have together, which are surprisingly not awkward.“We’re really good friends,” Steven said, also noting that he’s dating someone outside the show. Lauren — who is currently single — even called Steven’s gal “super cool.”
Still, Steven revealed that both he and Lauren had to bring their A-game for an upcoming love scene.
“We’ve had to do some pretty couple-ish scenes… a sex scene that we had to go for. What’s great is I make it a thing to feel comfortable with her and she makes it a thing to feel comfortable with me and it’s fine.”
In Lauren’s opinion, holding back in a sex scene (even though there are countless crew members standing around you!) “cheapens” the experience for the viewers.
Steven agrees, pointing out that the TWD production staff handled this particular sequence very well. “They were really careful about that scene...I heavily identify with my character and the love he has for Maggie just because it’s not a film — we don't do it for two months and we’re done — we’re doing it for four years. It’s pretty cool.”
We know that Maggie is the only one not infected by this flu, but obviously Glenn makes a speedy recovery if he’s got an upcoming sex scene with his gal!
