The Walking Dead's Lauren Cohan talks sci-fi conventions, geeked-out fans and more



Actress Lauren Cohan, who plays Maggie on The Walking Dead, is also a singer -- if you watch the show, you've seen her sing folk songs with Emily Kinney, who plays her sister Beth.

This weekend, both Cohan and Kinney will appear at Tampa Bay Comic Con at the Doubletree Hilton Hotel in Tampa. No word on whether we'll get a performance of their song The Parting Glass, which appears on the show's soundtrack. But she is looking forward to getting some face time with her many fanboy (and fangirl) fans in Tampa.

“I always end up doing sci-fi; I guess I really like the brains of it,” said Cohan, who has also had roles on Supernatural and The Vampire Diaries. “I like the people that are devoted enough to put in the time to read the comic. I’m a geek myself; I grew up watching Star Trek, I don’t do drugs. … They’re my people.”
