When The Walking Dead's Beth Greene sings to baby Judith amidst the chaos of Season 3, it wasn't just for dramatic purposes that Emily Kinney (who plays Beth) was chosen for the lullaby. In fact, when she isn't surviving a post-apocalyptic wasteland, Kinney is known as an accomplished singer-songwriter, cutting her teeth right here in New York City's incredible indie music scene.
This, of course, isn't news to her Walking Dead co-stars, who often attend Kinney performances when they are hanging out on-set in Atlanta. In fact, Kinney says the cast are some of her biggest supporters when it comes to music. She confirms what show fans definitely suspect: Those on the show are as close as they seem on the screen. Kinney talks about her personal heartbreak at the mid-season finale, plus what we are going to see on the most "action-packed" episodes of the show to date, when the series returns this Sunday.
By the way, if you want to see her for yourself, you can drop by her February 13 show at Rockwood Music Hall.
