Emily Kinney, star of The Walking Dead, reveals how Beth Greene felt killing her first zombie, finding a new found bond with Judith and heading to a recording studio with Lauren Cohan.

Emily Kinney may play one of the quietest characters on The Walking Dead, but in an interview with AMCThe Walking Dead star speaks in depth about killing her first zombie, finding a new lead with becoming a motherly figure to Judith and how nervous she was when attending a recording studio with co-star Lauren Cohan.

It’s taken many episodes to get anywhere near to knowing Beth Greene, but the third season has been the most prominent for the character. In the third season’s premiere, Emily Kinney had to sing “Parting Glass” with co-star Lauren Cohan whilst sitting amongst a campfire with the rest of the cast. This was one of the first true insights of Beth Greene thus far in The Walking Dead, and since, she has slowly begun to blossom.

Kinney reveals upon entering the recording studio, “That was definitely a new experience. I’ve really only recorded a few times before, and last time was with a friend in his small studio. It was cool to focus more on the vocals and not the whole track. The crew has been so supportive. You finish a song and they’ll cheer. Someone was asking me if I was nervous singing, but it’s not any more than any other scene.”

Evan Reilly, the Co-Executive Producer and Writer of The Walking Dead, already knew of her singing abilities whilst hiring Kinney, and came to one of her shows in New York City. Kinney reveals, “People knew that I was a songwriter, and they knew that I could sing, but I think that Glen [Mazzara] had the idea.” Nicely done, Mazzara, it was a touching moment in the season 3 premiere with the inclusion of “Parting Glass.”

But this isn’t the only new character development we’ve seen from Beth Greene. She’s finally killed her first zombie, and Kinney sure did enjoy it. “It was in the first episode and I can’t tell you how happy I was. I got him through the fence with a crowbar. It was really satisfying.”

No one really saw that coming from the younger sister of Maggie, after seeing her on the brink of suicide in the second season. Beth really has come along quickly and seemingly taking a bit of anger out on those zombies.

But also, that mental state of Beth’s has been calmed by the birth of Judith, Rick’s daughter. Beth has taken on a motherly figure after the death of Lori, and has unveiled strengths she never knew she had. Kinney has bonded off-screen with the child actors too. “I loved the first two babies, but they’re supposed to be newborns and babies get big really quickly. So they had to hire a new set of twins. But a baby crying on set adds this real feeling to it. I think I’m the best [at holding them].”

What are your thoughts on Emily Kinney’s portrayal of Beth Greene? Is Beth slowly blossoming into the character that she has hidden somewhere inside of her? Or is it time for Beth to be killed off?

Be sure to check out Emily Kinney in The Walking Dead latest episode, “Home” on AMC tonight at 9pm ET/PT.

A new Fifty Shades Darker trailer was released on Wednesday and ups the sexy for the sequel.

Ana and Christian are getting back together in the Fifty Shades of Grey sequel, but the former has a couple of new rules: No secrets, way less BDSM. Christian agrees, but new problems come to light: Is someone from the millionaire’s past haunting him?

Dakota Johnson continues to bring a fun vibe to Ana Steele, playing the awkward lines with self awareness better than Kristen Stewart ever did as Bella in Twilight. “Have dinner with me,” Christian begs. “Okay fine, I will have dinner with you, because I’m… hungry,” Ana replies. The line could come off corny if executed poorly, but Dakota has a strong hold on playing this character for fun.

Tickets for Fifty Shades Darker are now on sale. Check out a new poster for the movie below:

The Fifty Shades Darker synopsis reads, “When a wounded Christian Grey tries to entice a cautious Ana Steele back into his life, she demands a new arrangement before she will give him another chance. As the two begin to build trust and find stability, shadowy figures from Christian’s past start to circle the couple, determined to destroy their hopes for a future together.”

The movie hits theaters this Valentine’s Day. It stars Dakota Johnson, Jamie Dornan, Eric Johnson, Jennifer Ehle, Victor Rasuk, Luke Grimes, Rita Ora, Eloise Mumford, Max Martini, Bella Heathcote, Kim Basinger and Marcia Gay Harden, and is directed by James Foley.

It’s looking like Nick Robinson will go from battling dinosaurs to battling the process of coming out.

Simon vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda is an excellent coming of age/coming out LGBT YA novel which we’ve raved about here on Hypable before. Nick Robinson is definitely an actor we can picture in the role, so we can’t wait to see him play the adorable character.

The film is being produced by Wyck Godfrey’s Temple Hill Entertainment, who’s responsible for The Maze Runner series, The Twilight Saga, and the upcoming Power Rangers.

What do think of Nick Robinson as Simon?

If you haven’t read it yet, we highly recommend that you do. The book was first published last year:

Netflix has unveiled a new Series of Unfortunate Events trailer, showing off Neil Patrick Harris’ excellent portrayal of the evil, wacky, will-stop-at-nothing-to-get-that-money Count Olaf.

Neil Patrick Harris’ ability to convincingly become any person — whether male or female, young or old, ugly or beautiful — becomes abundantly clear in the latest ASOUE trailer. While some of us may’ve been a little skeptical of his casting initially, it’s hard to imagine anyone else in the role after seeing previews like this.

The trailer begins with narrator Lemony Snicket (played by Patrick Warburton) warning that the new Netflix show is no delightful watch. Then the focus turns to Olaf and his mission to steal the children’s fortune, left to them by their parents after their untimely deaths:

A Series of Unfortunate Events premieres all eight episodes of its first season on January 13, 2017.

“Based on the internationally best-selling series of books by Lemony Snicket (aka Daniel Handler) and starring Emmy and Tony Award winner Neil Patrick Harris, A Series of Unfortunate Events recounts the tragic tale of the Baudelaire orphans — Violet, Klaus, and Sunny – whose evil guardian Count Olaf will stop at nothing to get his hands on their inheritance. The siblings must outsmart Olaf at every turn, foiling his many devious plans and disguises, in order to discover clues to their parents’ mysterious death.”

Another trailer was released two weeks ago — you can watch it here.

Is ‘Unfortunate Events’ looking as good as you hoped?

Harris previously confirmed that each book will be adapted into two episodes of the show. The first season of ASOUE covers the first four books, so presumably season 2 will roughly cover another four books. There are a total of 13 books in Lemony Snicket’s series.
