The eldest daughter of the thoughtful and religious ex-veterinarian, the Lauren Cohan played Maggie Greene now Maggie Rhee by marriage has called her infant son Hershel after her on-screen father. "We also have the wonderful Scott Wilson as Hershel as well as our wonderful Sonequa Martin-Green". His character was killed off in season 4 of the series, notes Variety. "He was a great friend, one I loved very much", said writer Glen Mazzarra.
