Actress Lauren Cohan almost quit hit TV drama The Walking Dead because she didn't think she'd be able to perform a Caesarean section onscreen.
The star, who portrays Maggie Greene in the zombie series, admits one bloody scene in season three almost made her turn her back on the show.
The sequence in question featured her character, the daughter of a doctor, helping to save an unborn child by cutting open the mother's abdomen, but just reading about the gory scene turned Lauren's stomach - and prompted her to seek advice from her co-star Steven Yeun, who plays her onscreen husband, Glenn.
"I knock on Steven's door and I said I have to leave the show, I don't think I can do it," she admits on an upcoming episode of Inside the Actors Studio. "It affects you so deeply to the core to touch on - to dive into so much of this material and then I realised that's why I have to do it because the outcome of that, as heinous and as sleeplessly that affected me..., we watch to feel and to hopefully, honestly portray something."

We're happy, but we're a little confused at the same time.
Well, that was a bit of an anticlimax. 'The Walking Dead' season 6 left viewers hyperventilating a few weeks ago when they apparently killed off one of the best characters in the entire show, and now we've finally got a resolution, we're a little taken aback by the banality of it.
How does Glenn survive?
All season out stress levels have been rocking back and forth; is Alexandria safe or isn't it? When will the Wolves attack next? What happened to so-and-so? And speaking of the latter, that's been the biggest topic of conversation since the episode 'Thank You' aired: What happened to Glenn?
Why couldn't it have been Father Gabriel?
Wow. So the creators of 'The Walking Dead' really know how to break our hearts. Regular viewers of the never-ending zombie series will be used to grieving by now, but the latest death has proved to be way too much for some fans.
Rick faces ever more difficult hurdles in this season's 'The Walking Dead'
We're only three episodes into 'The Walking Dead' season six, and already one of the best characters has seemingly been killed off. While everyone was hoping that the reckless and seriously dodgy Father Gabriel (Seth Gilliam) would be the next to bite the dust, producers have taken the story completely the other way and wiped off one of the only remaining members of the original cast. We can only hope that we haven't seen the last of him.

Ian Gray is a molecular biologist studying the evolution of the human eye. One day, a strange recurrence of the number 11 leads him to a photograph of a pair of eyes that could subsequently reveal the spiritual truth of the universe. The owner of the eyes is a girl named Sofi who, unlike Ian, believes that she has known him in a past life. Ian tends to avoid any non-scientific interpretation of his feelings but cannot hide the fact that he feels complete with her in his life. The pair fall quickly in love and decide to get married, but in a cruel twist of fate, she tragically and suddenly dies. Depressed and empty, Ian receives a call from his lab mate who reveals an impossible discovery; despite the fact that everyone is meant to have totally distinct eyes, she has found a person in India who shares the same irises as Sofi.

We waved goodbye to a central character in the latest edition of the AMC series, but we might not have seen the last of them
Over the course of the past three seasons, we've waved goodbye to a number of important Walking Dead characters in unforgiving circumstances, but on the latest episode of the zombie drama, titled 'Indifference,' there was a much more civil goodbye from one of the less civil individuals. Their deeds and eventual banishing from the prison commune inevitably took up most of the episode, as we also discovered a little more about the remaining cast. The rest of this article contains spoilers.
Season four is well under way now
When we first met Carol, she was a frightened, deer in the headlights-type of girl whose survival often came into question. By the time she was cast out of the prison by Rick, she had developed into someone numb to violence or fear, someone willing to do what was needed when faced with danger. We found out this week that she didn't give a second thought to murdering Karen or David, as she told Rick that she did what she believed was essential for the well-being of the rest of the community.
AMC's hit flesh eating series returned last night to inject some zombie-shaped goodness into the hole left by the 'Breaking Bad' finale
The Walking Dead season four premiered on AMC on Sunday, 13 October, night and with this return there was an eerie calm over the people, as a sense of togetherness has developed over the period between the end of season three and here. As the title suggests, walkers have been scarce in numbers and devious characters have been keeping to themselves, but as detailed in our season four preview, there will be a whole new threat to the characters this season, one that is only just about to rear it's ugly head. The rest of this article contains spoilers.
What could be i store for the characters this season?
The Woodbury people are still hemmed in at the prison and we see Rick Grimes (Andrew Lincoln) in the yard tending to his crops, zombies clawing at him from the other side of the gate. Finding a gun in the ground during his work, he tosses it aside like yesterday's newspaper. Still the same old Grimes. When Carl (Chandler Riggs) comes out to see his dad, who is this time tending to the prison yard pigs farm, Rick warns him not to name the pigs (Carl notices that "Violet" looks sick) as they are food.
