Impossibly gorgeous, The Walking Dead star Lauren Cohan is much more than just Maggie Greene. The Philadelphia-born 31-year-old loves dogs, Jeff Bridges, and fan rumors. She's also well-practiced in getting zombie guts out of her hair. In our dreams, she's Steven Yeun’s (Glenn Rhee) best gal — but that has no bearing on real life, unfortunately.
Read on to learn all about The Walking Dead's Lauren Cohan!
Her Celebrity Crush Is 68-Year-Old Jeff Bridges. "It's not a romantic crush," Lauren clarified in an interview with Maxim. "It's kind of an everything crush."
She Lived Next to a Pet Cemetery as a Teenager. Lauren moved to England from Philadelphia as a teenager, and reflected on the experience on Conan. It "looked everything like a normal cemetery," she remembered, except for the names, "like Fluffy and Bobo." "Like porn names," she joked.
You Might Recognize Her From Supernatural. In Season 3 of the CW series led by super-hottie Jared Padalecki, Lauren played Bela Talbot, a supernatural object thief with a troubled past. Notably, she didn't mask her accent for the role, which is some combination of her New England childhood and British adolescence.
She Brings Her Dog to Work. Lauren has a small-ish dog — 35 pounds — that loves to lick zombies. "if you have any alcohol or spray on your clothes, it’s kind of salty and he likes to lick it," she said to AMC. "So he actually likes the walkers because they are covered in a bunch of different stuff."
She's a "History Nerd." In an interview with Elle, Lauren said that she's looking for "anything mythical" in a future role. "I have this fascination with Viking and Egyptian history," she gushed. "Acting's the best job for somebody who loves weird, different stuff."
She Knows You're Shipping Her and Steven Yeun IRL. She thinks it's hilarious. "We are constantly joking about it," she told AMC. "It has become a running joke for us. If we post any picture of the two of us sitting together, people start saying things."
