Happy belated birthday to Laurie Holden, aka Andrea on The Walking Dead!

The beautiful blonde actress turned 44-years-awesome on December 17, and she shared a photo on the big day. The tweet was just marked “My birthday,” but the pic shows she got the best gift — dinner with the great Scott Wilson, aka Hershel Greene!

Every TV show’s cast talks about being one big happy family, but in TWD family they still hang out together even after the characters are off the show.

TWD holds “death dinners” to celebrate and send off characters, and Hershel got the latest dinner after the Season 4, Episode 8 midseason finale was taped over the summer. Hersh hasn’t even been gone a full episode and we already miss him! We still miss Andrea too. This time last year, she was looking on in horror as The Governor (David Morrissey) brought Daryl Dixon (Norman Reedus) and Merle Dixon (Michael Rooker) into the Woodbury fight club pit. If only someone had just shot The Gov. right then and there. Oh well.

On to happier subjects, like Laurie’s future! The only good thing about her leaving the small screen is we can eventually watch her on the big screen. She got the lead female role in Dumb and Dumber To, which is coming out next November.

In the meantime, we can smile at this sweet b-day photo … although maybe someone should’ve cropped out the exit sign. We already know they’re gone — don’t rub it in!

The Walking Dead Season 4 returns on Sunday, February 9 at 9 p.m. ET on AMC.
