The Walking Dead Character: Maggie Greene
Date of Birth: January 7, 1982
Hometown: Philadelphia, Pennsylvania
Bet You Didn’t Know… Lauren moved to her mother’s native United Kingdom when she was in her teens.
Though Lauren Cohan was born in Philadelphia and lived in New Jersey for a few years as a child, she later returned to England (where her mother is from) and graduated from the University of Winchester / King Alfred's College where she studied Drama and English Literature.
After graduating, Lauren split her time between London and L.A. juggling several acting jobs. She had small parts in movies such as Casanova and National Lampoon's Van Wilder: The Rise of Taj, but is perhaps best known for her various television roles.
Before joining The Walking Dead as Maggie Greene in Season 2, Lauren played Bela Talbot on Supernatural and Rose on The Vampire Diaries.
