In “Welcome to the Tombs”, fans were shocked that Milton Mamet (portrayed by Dallas Roberts) became a walker. It was revealed in an interview with Roberts that the original death for Milton was much different and that Andrea (portrayed by Laurie Holden) would have had a different fate.
Dallas Roberts’ News Weekly Interview
“Originally, the beating scene that started the episode wasn’t there,” Dallas explained to Entertainment Weekly. “Originally, I showed up and was led into the room where Andrea was and I took the tools out – the instruments of torture that were laid on the table – and then he shot me in the stomach, completely unexpectedly. And then I was left to bleed out in the same idea basically – you’re going to kill her now.”
“There was a lot more of Milton trying to open the door and him trying to free her from the chains,” continued Dallas. “And then there was a section where he was going to wrap the chain around the neck and try to choke her to death before he turned so she wouldn’t have to deal with Walker Milton, or Biter Milton, as it were.”
“And then at the end of that, it was just Tyreese and someone else who found her. Rick and Daryl and Michonne weren’t there. So it was essentially the same idea, except you saw me taking chunks out of Laurie Holden in that version. And then they called us back a few months later to reshoot it and made all those changes.”
