Now that The Governor’s story on The Walking Dead has wrapped up, David is able to speak about his latest project, Line of Sight. Developed by AMC, Lind of Sight follows Lewis Bernt (Morrissey), a National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) investigator who survives a mysterious plane crash. Having survived the crash, Lewis is put on a disorienting quest to discover the accident’s cause.
How did you feel about having to lie to the press about remaining on The Walking Dead after you were cast in AMC’s Line of Sight?
I’ve got to wait and see about Line of Sight. It was very different, and I’m terribly superstitious about these things; I’ve got everything crossed that it gets picked up. It’s a great piece of writing by Blake Masters and really fertile territory to explore for me. But I’m slightly nervous about talking about it because I want it to happen so much! [Laughs]

AMC’s The Walking Dead parted ways with its biggest villain to date during Sunday’s season four midseason finale. During Too Far Gone, David Morrissey’s the Governor led a brutal and bloody attack on Rick’s community in an effort to find a safer home for his new family and group. After taking Hershel (Scott Wilson) and Michonne (Danai Gurira) hostage, the Governor gave Rick (Andrew Lincoln) an ultimatum to vacate the prison. However, after both Hershel and Rick attempted to persuade him that both groups could coexist at the prison, the Governor saw red and decapitated the elder statesman in front of both groups.
It set the stage for Lilly, who earlier in the hour questioned her new love interest’s moral center, to deliver the fatal shot that ended the Governor’s life after Michonne saved Rick’s life and stabbed the eye-patched villain.
The Hollywood Reporter caught up with Morrissey in London to discuss the Governor’s fate and having his own Death Dinner alongside Wilson.
What were the conversations like when you learned that the Governor was returning for season four? Did you know he’d have such a limited run?
I knew I wouldn’t get to the end of the season but didn’t know how limited it would be. I had a word with [showrunner] Scott [Gimple] but I didn’t know when he would die or if I would get to episode nine or 10. I had an idea that it would be a good time to go in the midseason finale, and they need to do some big stuff in those episodes. But I wasn’t sure until I read the script, and that’s when I knew.
Did you know you’d only really be in three episodes?
I didn’t. Scott said I’d come in to the season late, but I didn’t know when or how late. But he said episode four or five, so I had a ballpark figure in my head about when. But he wasn’t specific about how many episodes I’d be in. I didn’t know it would be three or four. I knew I wouldn’t get to the end of the season. None of us know until we actually read the episodes how long we’ve got. I only knew that I was going just before the delivery of episode eight. That’s when I knew.
What was the conversation like when you found out the Governor would be killed off in the midseason finale?
I did get the death call [from Scott] and it’s always a sad one. I knew the Governor wasn’t someone who was going to be in it forever. I was very sad because I loved being in the show and working with everybody. Then the double whammy of also being the person who brings Scott Wilson’s participation to an end was really heavy. All the episodes are all very demanding and shocking, and we had that at the end of last season when Laurie Holden (Andrea) and Michael Rooker (Merle) were both killed. It’s something we go through on The Walking Dead and it’s hard when it’s other people, but it’s just as tough when it’s yourself.
Rick tried desperately to persuade the Governor that they could coexist, but the Governor calls him a liar. How much of that was a nod to his attempts to live a peaceful life free of attachments?
It’s all about the natural character that one has. The Governor did attempt to turn around and be good and find that family. But once he tries to escape the camp and take the girls with him, he sees that he can’t fight this, and he has to confront what’s out there rather than run away. He’s a different man after episode seven. He knows he’s not going to be a diplomat and accept compromise; he’s much more of an old conquering man, so it has to be absolute. Once he sees the futility that Megan has died, that death and destruction is all around, it becomes this psychotic place he lives in. And he’s in that place of total destruction, so once Michonne kills him, there’s a sense that if he’s going to go down, he’s going to take as many people as he can. I hope he’s been a complex character in the sense that you see, following the external battle he wages against the world and the internal battle he wages within himself, that’s what I want from the character, and I think that’s what the writers have delivered.

For those the have not watched last night’s episode of The Walking Dead title, Too Far Gone and want to remain spoiler free DO NOT READ PAST THIS POINT. For everyone else, please continue!
Last night we saw the death of two main characters; David Morrisey’s The Governor and fan-favourite, Hershel portrayed by Scott Wilson. TVLine.com had a chance to speak to Scott about his send off and The Governor. I’ve clipped the portion directly (and in-directly) related to David. Take a look below:
What was your reaction when you heard the way Hershel was going out?
The thing to me that is even more important than him being decapitated were the positions he took in 4.03 and 4.05. Those two episodes are more important than the way he lost his head at the end. I would assume that there will be some kind of Hershel amputationaudience response to Hershel losing his head. I would not want to be David Morrissey. [Laughs]
Speaking of David, any thoughts on the Governor’s death?
He has done such a fantastic job. The more people are happy that he’s gone the more accolades he deserves.
You watched a lot of your co-stars get killed off over these three years. Was there one goodbye that was especially tough for you?
I miss every one of them. They helped build the fan base, they helped get people interested in watching the show every week. And when they go, you can’t forget their contribution to the show. We walk on their shoulders. And now I guess they’ll be walking on my shoulders. Or my head. [Laughs]
