‘The Walking Dead’ actors on Emmy ballot: Andrew Lincoln and Lauren Cohan are submitted in guest, 5 others in supporting

This season “The Walking Dead” fans were forced to say goodbye to two of their favorite characters, Rick Grimes and Maggie Greene, and now AMC has decided to submit the actors who portrayed them as guest stars on the 2019 Emmy ballot. That’s right — as Gold Derby previously reported, former lead actor Andrew Lincoln and supporting actress Lauren Cohan can now be found in the guest categories for their tearful final appearances in the episode titled “What Comes After.” They both appeared in five of the season’s 16 episodes, which is well below the 50% threshold required to be submitted as a guest star.

Five other “The Walking Dead” supporting players are also hoping to hear their names called when the nominations are announced July 16: long-time cast members Norman Reedus, Danai Gurira and Melissa McBride and current bad guys Jeffrey Dean Morgan and Samantha Morton.
