‘Walking Dead’ Star Emily Kinney Back from the Dead with New Music Video

Unless Walking Dead brings back Beth Greene, you’ll only see Emily Kinney in this music video for now. She unleashed “Rockstar” with all its shredding, powerful, umm…easy listening, countryish twang on the world. The song sounds like Taylor Swift crossed with indie lite rock. She definitely is talented so the song deserves a listen.

Her director, Jay Sansone, couldn’t hide his boner for Kinney while describing her talent.

“I jumped at the chance to work with Emily because she’s a double threat—an incredible dramatic actress and a pop star,” says director Sansone. “You just have to roll camera on that kind of presence and let her do her thing. For this video, we choose a very clean ’90s music video look and made something that resonates with Emily’s style and something gritty the fans would appreciate.”

Gritty eh? Not the first word that comes to mind. In any case, Kinney earns a second single with this song.

Meanwhile, fans of her character, Beth Greene, have petitioned to bring her back. From the dead! Hey ohhh!

The petition was launched Dec. 3 — three days after Walking Dead’s season five midseason finale, in which her character was shockingly killed off. In it, fans are encouraged to send plastic spoons — a reference to a souvenir she finds during a season four episode — to AMC’s Georgia production offices with their favorite Beth quotes written on them.

“Her story wasn’t over. Emily Kinney and her character don’t deserve this. There was so much more to be done with her character and they chose to kill her in a disgusting, unsatisfying death that caused more anger and disappointment than shock and mourning. Beth was a symbol of hope that a lot of women could relate to and see themselves in (especially self-harmers who saw her as someone who overcame their suicidal/depressive feelings). By sloppily killing her it just shows that she was used to further a man’s (Daryl’s) storyline. We realize that the circumstances she dies in are irreversible, but this is television. Anything is possible. By signing this petition you can at least show your support for Beth. Let’s show Emily Kinney how much we love her and want her back.”

Do America proud and go sign the petition now. Let your voice be heard! Emily Kinney, and her manager, and her agent, will thank you.
