Feldshuh plays Deanna Monroe, the leader in the Alexandria Safe-Zone.
-
She told Variety: "I based her on Hillary Clinton. She's somebody I've admired and somebody incredibly qualified to lead the nation. She's been in service to the United States for a good deal of her life.
-
"I studied her as my immediate prototype. I looked at other wonderful congresswomen, and tried to think what I could bring to it: where did the character connect with my character as a human being?"
-
Feldshuh added: "Deanna Monroe doesn't even carry a gun. She's a culturalist. She's the brains and the hope for a return to a society where people have enough time to watch children, to kiss again, to connect and make more people.
-
"(Deanna) needs Rick Grimes (Andrew Lincoln). She needs his brawn and he needs her cultural brain. She needs his knowledge of the outside as he needs the sanctum of the inside."
