Lennie James talks The Walking Dead season 8 and Morgan’s unforgettable scene


The Walking Dead season 8 premieres on October 22 on AMC and Morgan actor Lennie James is talking about a scene that will not be easily forgotten by the fans of the show.

We are 22 days away from The Walking Dead season 8, and thanks to Entertainment Weekly’s all-encompassing coverage of the show, we know that Lennie James (Morgan) and Tom Payne (Jesus) have a truly unforgettable scene.

According to James, when asked about a sparring scene between his character Morgan and Payne’s Jesus, there will be something that happens that that won’t be easily forgotten.

"All I can say is it was a huge amount of fun to play around with Tom in that particular scene. I really can’t say much about anything about even hinting at where that scene comes and what it is, what it foreshadows, or what it’s in preparation for, but yeah, that’s pretty much all I can say except for it’s not going to be a moment that’s going to be easily forgotten."

As hype for The Walking Dead season 8 goes, James’ comments rank up there with the reveal of old man Rick at the end of the above trailer. If Season 7 was the setup for the war with Negan and his group the Saviors, then Season 8 is going to be the war itself, and hopefully, the first few episodes will match the pace set by the season 7 finale.

"The first three episodes, I don’t think they take much of a breath. I mean, it just keeps going, and we settle down a little bit later, and it’s going to be brutal and there are going to be causalities."
