The Walking Dead: World Beyond spoilers follow.
The Walking Dead: World Beyond fans had to do a double take recently when a familiar face returned with a new name and haircut.
The character played by Pollyanna McIntosh on The Walking Dead has made an unexpected comeback to World Beyond, where she’s reprised the identity of Jadis… with a twist. Also known as Anne, Jadis seems to have taken the last name of Father Gabriel Stokes (Seth Gilliam), her former boyfriend.
As Anne, the character was last seen boarding the CRM helicopter together with Andrew Lincoln’s Rick Grimes on his last appearance. So what happened next?
McIntosh admitted being shocked to get back to the show as Jadis Stokes.
“Even I was surprised in hearing that she was Jadis Stokes. I was like, ‘What? What? What?'” the actress told Entertainment Weekly.
“But she left him behind, and she had to. But I thought she’s not going to want to keep her… They always challenge me where I have to come up with these reasons for things. I know it’s right because it’s the writers, and they know this world, it’s their world,” she continued.
McIntosh then revealed she thought that Jadis took Gabriel’s last name as a way to honour him and let the world know she isn’t available at once.
“So I decided it’s a way of honouring what was a true relationship with Gabriel, but also a reminder that it didn’t work out and that it doesn’t work out when you fall in love, and not to do that again,” she said.
“I think the idea for her of being Mrs Stokes is hilarious, because she’s not the marrying type. But in a way, if you’re married you’re not available, and she isn’t available in that regard anymore.”
The Walking Dead: World Beyond season 2 airs on Sundays on AMC in the US. You can stream the series on Amazon Prime Video in the UK.
