Tributes Pour In For Veteran 'Walking Dead' Actor Scott Wilson After His Death At Age 76

By John Sundholm

His character's loss was one of the most heartbreaking moments on TV and now fans are mourning the loss of the actor, too. 

Veteran actor Scott Wilson played Hershel Green for two seasons on AMC's The Walking Dead and quickly became one of the series' most beloved characters. A kind, upstanding man, Green was in many ways the heart and soul of the show during his tenure, encouraging the group to remember their humanity even as they watched their loved ones get eaten alive by zombies. The loss of his decency in a world gone mad when his character was brutally murdered by the show's villain, the Governor, was heartbreaking. 

But, in true TWD fashion, Hershel wasn't slated to stay dead forever. This past weekend at New York Comic-Con, showrunner Angela Kang's announcement that Hershel would be returning to the upcoming season of the show prompted uproarious cheers that filled Madison Square Garden.
