Lauren Cohan Models for GQ

The Walking Dead’s Lauren Cohan makes an appearance in the October 2014 edition of GQ. She’s really, really pretty. Like, she’s so pretty, I’d secretly cut off a lock of her hair just so I could caress it against my cheek. I mean, hypothetically. That makes it sound less weird, right?

“I’d always fantasized about playing a southern role,” says Lauren Cohan in her natural British accent. “I definitely had this idea” – and here she breaks into the farm-girl drawl that defines Maggie Greene on The Walking Dead – “she’d be soooo southern.” She reverts to British. “I had to deal that in slightly.” The ventriloquist act comes from a rootless childhood, jumping from New Jersey to Georgia (a year, but it stuck), back to New Jersey, then to the UK. Decades later, Cohan’s still got the wide-eyed fascination of a kid who moved a lot – as happy in the gritty loft she once occupied in downtown L.A. as in her current suburban Atlanta home, and probably as happy as she’d be on the Montana ranch she fantasized about retiring to. “You could spin the flipping globe and put me anywhere on it and I’d be happy.” Wait, flipping? She lets out a loud laugh. “I never realized how much I actually curse until I read a couple of interviews, and I was like: You need to find a different word.” See? Adaptable.

Here she is explaining how to impress her on a date. She’s very old fashioned. You’d probably want to take her to a sock hop or something.
