The Walking Dead star Pollyanna McIntosh talks Jadis’s next move and heat with Rick Grimes
The Walking Dead star Pollyanna McIntosh has revealed who’s first on Jadis’s hit list.
McIntosh, who plays the enigmatic leader of the Scavengers, Jadis, was speaking to fans at a panel at London’s Walker Stalker Convention.
Asked whether Jadis is most angry at Simon, Negan or Rick after the events of the latest episode, McIntosh said: “It’s funny you say Simon or Negan or Rick. I think it would be in that order. If she could get one through all of them, that would be great – but really she’s got so much grief going on right now it really could go in any direction.”
The most recent episode of The Walking Dead, titled ‘The Lost and the Plunderers’, saw Simon execute Jadis’s entire community and leave her only exit blocked by their zombified corpses. Later in the episode, Rick Grimes refused to help her escape, forcing Jadis to take drastic measures.
McIntosh added: “I don’t think Rick leaving me there was as big an issue as what Simon did, so yeah, it would definitely be him first.”
McIntosh also discussed the heated chemistry between her character and Alexandria leader Rick Grimes, played by Andrew Lincoln.
When asked about the relationship, she immediately joked: “What are you talking about? I have no idea.”
She went on to say: “Jadis really enjoys the bargaining and I think in those moments together where they were playing off each other is when that was really felt, because there’s so much enjoyment from her at that anyway. He’s also a curious person – he’s also someone who likes to take the measure of someone just as Jadis does, so that really brought them eye to eye.
“It just came naturally out of that, and I don’t know if that heat you talk about is something that came out of the script or evolved the way it has.”
