It’s possible that Lauren Cohan might be leaving AMC drama ‘The Walking Dead’ for its upcoming ninth season, seeing the end of one of our favorite characters Maggie Greene.
OK, so nothing is confirmed yet, but according to reports recently made by Deadline the 36-year-old actress has received a number of great offers from upcoming TV shows for her to star their pilot seasons, where she would play a huge role. Her fantastic work on The Walking Dead has definitely seen her one of the most sought after talents in the entertainment industry at the moment.
Cohan is said to be in contract negotiations for AMC to secure her great work for the future on The Walking Dead but apparently the actress wants a salary closer to that of Norman Reedus and Andrew Lincoln, who are the two highest paid actors on the drama. Deadline say Cohan has received a ‘modest’ salary increase offer from AMC, which was rejected.
