The Walking Dead star dishes dirt on deleted Eugene sex scene that show bosses axed 'because it was too distracting'

THE Walking Dead is proof that even the zombie apocalypse isn't enough to stop mankind bonking.

The AMC drama has included a manner of weird and wonderful sex scenes over the years, with the most recent between Negan (Jeffrey Dean Morgan) and Alpha (Samantha Morton), who insisted on doing the deed while wearing a mask of rotten skin.

However, almost as bizarre is the prospect of resident nerd Eugene (Josh McDermitt) enjoying a romp with former saviour Laura (Lindsley Register) – yet that's exactly what writers initially had planned.

Register revealed that a scene between the unlikely pair was axed by producers during the editing stage as they thought it would take away from the seriousness of the action.

Wile appearing on the Talk Dead to Me podcast, Register explained that the hook-up was due to take place while the duo were in Sanctuary as Daryl and Tara tried to break in.

Apparently it was a "kind of nihilistic moment" as the two faced potential death and featured no serious emotional connection whatsoever.


"They were like, 'There's definitely nothing going on between you two'," she said.

"They were reiterating this to me, 'There's no amount of care in this. It's just sex.' So we go and we film it, it was really funny," she went on.

"If I remember right, I kiss him and he's like, 'You taste like stone fruit and applesauce.'

"I'm getting dressed and he's got the sheet pulled up around him, it's so cute."

Given Eugene's subsequent rejection by Siddiq, no doubt fans would've liked to see him enjoy some luck with the ladies.

Register explained that there wasn't time in the episode to take away from the main infiltration plot.

"It would have been too much of a subplot distraction from what was going on. So maybe from a story perspective, it just didn't work," she concluded.

The comment come after fans spotted a "endless zombie loop" easter egg spanning 15 years earlier this week.
