Melissa Mcbride Walking Dead
Earlier McBride had a relationship with Darabont. This led Darabont to cast McBride as Carol Peletier in the AMC television drama series The Walking Dead – her biggest role to date. Peletier is a mid-forties widow and caring mother to preteen Sophia, fighting to survive in a violent post-apocalyptic world populated with flesh-eating zombies and the few surviving humans, some of whom are diabolical and even more dangerous than the zombies themselves.
McBride did not do audition for the role, since she thought it was temporary. She was a recurring cast member in Season 1 and was promoted to series regular for Season 2. McBride’s name appeared in the opening credits sequence beginning with the first episode of Season 4. Carol was supposed to have been killed off in the episode “Killer Within”, but the producers eventually had a change of plans.
McBride’s character develops from being weak and dependent, into a strong, cunning, and loyal warrior as the series progresses. The direction of her character is contrasted between the two media. In the comic series, Carol is much younger and exhibits a neurotic, self-centered, and naive demeanor. Throughout her time in the comics, she grows increasingly unstable to the point of being self-destructive.
The television show differs in these regards, as she is shown to be a stern, pragmatic, and compassionate individual who has been gradually building inner strength. Producers of the series, Scott M. Gimple and Robert Kirkman, said in 2014 that “Carol is her own unique character; it would be a disservice to Melissa McBride to say she’s evolved into the Carol from the comics. The Carol in the TV show is a wholly original creation that we’ll continue to explore on the show to great effect. Everyone in the writers’ room loves that character, and we’re thrilled with what Melissa has brought to the table. She has definitely become a character that is one to watch, and there’s some really exciting stuff ahead for her.”
McBride has received critical acclaim for her performance as Carol and won positive reviews from critics during Seasons 3, 4, and 5. Many critics praised McBride’s performance in the Season 4 episode centered on her character, “The Grove”. Others singled out Carol’s actions in the Season 5 premiere, “No Sanctuary”, which earned critical praise and positive fan reception.
Despite the praise of some critics and a fan campaign, McBride did not receive a nomination for the 2014 Primetime Emmy Award for Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Drama Series. However, she won the 40th Annual Saturn Award for Best Supporting Actress on Television, and was nominated for the 2014 Critics’ Choice Television Award for Best Supporting Actress in a Drama Series for her performance in Season 4. In March 2015, McBride was nominated for a Fangoria Chainsaw Award for Best Leading Actress in a Television series, for her role as Carol. She once again won the Saturn Award for Best Supporting Actress on Television at the 41st Saturn Awards, for the second year in a row.
