& # 39; Katelyn Nacon & # 39; Walking Dead was & # 39; tricky, because her story has become a human being


  • Warning: For the "The Walking Dead" season nine, Episode 15, "The Calm Before."
  • INSIDER spoke to Katelyn Nacon about her character, Enid, surprisingly died from the concert and how she and other "TWD" stars expected multiple assassins to be killed.
  • The Nacon said she was accused of becoming another love interest by the end of her role.
  • "It's sad that you have a really powerful independent female character on your show, but then you have focused your story on a person," Nacon said.

The Sunday episode of AMC's "The Walking Dead" brought a great moment from comics to life, killing 10 characters, including the long-standing Kateyn Nacon's image, Enid.

The Nacon, who had been on the show since the 5th season and was promoted to a regular series before the start of the eighth season, spoke to INSIDER about the first time he learned that there was a chance that Enid would be murdered by the performance and how a little bummed zombie drama threw Enid into another relationship after her last with Carl.

She also shared how she was barely in the early draft scenario of the episode and the next project she had already set up at Hulu.

The Nacon found that Enid withdrew from the show shortly before the Sunday episode.

At first, Katelyn Nacon said she was not scheduled to be included in most Sunday episodes.

Kirsten Acuna: When did you first find out that a great moment is happening from the comic book and that your time in the show ended?

Katelyn Nacon: I talked with a general discussion [showrunner] Angela [Kang] at the start of the shooting. It was April or May last year. We had an assembly and said that there was a possibility that this would be my character. I mean, they were not too convincing until August. Somehow I went through the season because I knew there was a chance, but I really do not know. So [it was] one year in limbo. Then I think it was around November or so, and episode 15 was shot in a week.

I was still not sure whether my character would be gone or not. So I sent a call by e-mail to them and said that this is my character.

Acuna: OK, when we spoke in December, you knew. Were you surprised that you were among the characters at the peak? What was your reaction?

Nacon: I always knew that there was a chance, I never knew. Somehow I left the season with optimism, but with a sense of realism at the same time that I could be [on the pikes]. I mean, I was a little surprised at the last minute. But in any case, I already knew this was an option, so I could not do much. It was a week before we started to record 9.15, I learned this episode.

The Nacon and others thought that more people and more regular officers, such as Christian Serratos and Khary Payton, would be on the rooftops.

According to Nacon, Christian Serratos, who plays Rosita, and Khary Payton, playing King Ezekiel, thought that they would be among those who were killed. Both of them are killed in a comic strip in this scene. As we know, it seems like changing things.

Acuna: Were you surprised over all the others, such as Tara and Henry? Did you know whether this was a secret because they do not happen in the comic book.

Nacon: Truly, I was surprised that there were no more regular orders than me and Alanna. Because when we first talked about it for the first time at the beginning of the season, it sounded like many people with heads on the dots, but I was really surprised that I was just myself and she from all the regular series. I thought it would be more.

Puck, which revealed on Sunday, showed 10 people, among them Enid, Tara, and a number of backgrounds and recurring characters.

Acuna: I think that the big thing about this episode was the fans who were wondering whether Ezekiel would be killed. He gets a lot of death in the comic and goes to Henry. How do you think people will react to change? How do you want them to respond?

Nacon: I do not know. I know that many people were surprised to hear that I was. I know, even Khary [Payton] and Christian [Serratos], they thought they were going there until there was an episode for all of us. In fact they went all year long, just wondering whether they will die or not, until they actually get episodes and see that they are not.

Acuna: FINE.

Nacon: So I think everyone was surprised.

The Nacon thought her character would die a few years ago and that her character was shaken by another relationship

Acuna: Have you ever had the impression that you might be even longer on the show? Did you feel that your time was on the show?

Nacon: I thought I'd die as a season six. I did not think my character would last as long as he was. So I'm glad I did this as much as I did. But I think, I do not know. I think that things started to slow down a lot around the eighth season [Enid]. It was kind of in the background, and her story was not anything advanced. Even with the ninth season she became a doctor, but the performance was not really more advanced with her character than she became a doctor and got a boyfriend.

So, I mean, honestly, she ran out of content or what? I am not sure.

In nine seasons, Enid followed Siddiq's steps and became a doctor.

Acuna: I wanted to ask you about this. I wanted to ask if this is a painful point, or not even when you learned that there is a chance. Speaking in December, you mentioned that you felt that Enid had no basis in eight seasons. It was kind of in tangents with Maggie. You said that Enid somehow became Maggie's puppy, and the show lost its look at the original Enid we first met. The one who was independent, who took care of himself. I think we've seen this in nine seasons, but did you think that this season ever came back?

Nacon: I mean, at the beginning of the year, I thought it was good with her learning, how to be a doctor and everything else. I thought there would be some interesting things, but I was a little different [half] from the season, which she just kind of pushed into the role of a love interest.

But there is a lot more to her than to return to where she started. Yes, I was a little shaken because my story was still worn or focused on someone else.

Enid was in the "are" / "not" relationship with Alden after a jump in time. That was the relationship Nacon told INSIDER in December, as she thought it would be Maggie first.

Acuna: Right. Well, I wanted to …

Nacon: It is sad that you have a truly independent female personality in your show, but then you have focused her story on a man.

How did Alpha kidnap someone like Enid, who had been from the beginning of the zombie apocalypse "JSS" – "Just Survive Something"? Even Nacon does not know.

Enid came with the word "JSS" when he lost his parents.

Acuna: That's what I was wondering about watching this episode, because I watched the episode several times. How has Alpha abducted or persuaded a person like Enid to come with her? I feel that this is completely contrary to Enid's character. Enid is not a fool. Her mantra was JSS: "Just spend somehow."

Nacon: I really have no idea. They never explained to us how we got there, or when we got there, because I was always with Alden at the fair. I do not know how I ended up there.

Acuna: Yeah. I was not sure if you could have taken anything, or if there was something that did not work out.

Nacon: No, we sort of cut into a sequence, how we fight and our cut heads. I did not have much as I did [until] the second scenario. I originally had two lines [in the episode].

Alpha has proven she is capable of deceiving others in the episode of the week, including King Ezekiel.
Jackson Lee Davis / AMC

Acuna: Interesting. I'm glad we saw more of you in the episode. For some others, like Frankie, we see them for a fraction of a second, and then you're like, "Oh, they're pussy." I forgot that there were people who still live in the apocalypse.

Nacon: Yeah. Very interesting.

Acuna: I thought it was possible to prove how dangerous Alfa is. The fact that he can grab people like Tara and Enid, but I really want to see you with Samantha Morton. Otherwise, the only scenario is when I saw Enid caught and taken to her will, if chlorophyll was involved, or if someone plugged in and stabbed her.

Nacon: Yeah. Well, they even show … Alpha comes in a suit. Everything is overlooking at the fair. So, [Enid] can simply be accepted by force. I do not know. In the darkness I'm just as much as you.

Enid does not blame Henry for his death.

Henry sought Lydia and the Whisper Camp, which led to a series of events where Alpha infiltrated King Ezekiel's kings and killed 10 people, including Henry.

Acuna: Well, the less serious question. Do you think Enid knew that Henry ultimately was guilty of all, or would he blame him for death?

Nacon: No. I do not think he'll ever blame Henry. I do not think anyone would ever blame anyone for death. I think she lived a long life when she condemned her to parental death. I feel like she finally got to the point where she realized that you can not do much or control in all of these situations. I think she knew that it was not his fault, and that she was very worried about Henry, so I do not think that I would ever blame him.

Acuna: What do you think was Enid's last thought? Because we do not see them. You think she meant Carla or Alden. Would you be finally happy to be with Carl or something completely different?

Nacon: Oh, do people have ultimate thoughts or something?

Acuna: No. We did not see any thoughts that you may have had. But I just wonder if they'd see you at the last minute before you were killed, what do you think he went through Enid's head?

Nacon: I think I'd be excited to see my parents and see Glenn.

In December, Nacon told us that Glenn was one of the most influential people in his life when he lost his parents.

Acuna: FINE. That makes sense.

Nacon: A little silver substrate.

Who now runs Hilltop? Daryl's guilty consent.

Every leader of the hill seems to be dying. If Daryl does not take over, Bertie will always look after the group.

Acuna: Well, who leads Hilltop now, when you and Tara are dead, and Jesus is dead, and Gregory is dead, and Maggie AWOL. It seems like this is not a big deal.

Nacon: I think Daryl will be. I do not know. I think it's just in limbo. I thought it would be either me or Alanna, but that was not at all. Then Darryl came in at once and rose [the Hilltop].

Daryl spoke for the hill when Alpha appeared with the Whisperer.
Genetic site / AMC

Acuna: Yeah, he kind of spoke to you when Alpha appeared with The Whispers on the hill, but I do not know it seems he worked alone.

What's next? The Nacon has another show on Hulu.

Acuna: What's next? In the last four years around this time, you have been preparing for the next season "The Walking Dead". You're at Walker Stalker in Berlin. Are there other films, performances, music, where you work or for which you are enthusiastic?

Nacon: Yes, I actually moved to California. So I lived there for two months and I just booked a new job. So I'll be in the second season "Light as A Feather" on Hulu.

Acuna: Oh, exciting! Congratulations.

Nacon: Yes, very exciting. Yeah, that's why I start shooting on April 7th. I have already returned to work, which is very good, very exciting.
