Tom Payne Warns 'Walking Dead' Fans of "Very Tough' Beginning to Season 7
Tom Payne, who plays fan-favourite character Jesus on The Walking Dead, has spoken about what's to come in the seventh season of the show, and in particular the premiere, which he says will be hard for fans.
"The beginning of next season is going to be very tough and pretty graphic and horrible," he said. "But it sets up the whole season, it's the beginning of the whole next story, it sets up Negan, this awful, awful person and the things that he is capable of doing.
"And that sets up the challenge for Season 7, and I recognize you probably could have done that at the end of Season 6 but I think it's going to be a really great opener.
"Unfortunately I think a lot of people who are wishing for the death and wishing that they had seen it, I think after the first episode they might wish they hadn't wished for it because it's going to be very brutal and a huge downer."
The Walking Dead returns October 23.
