Since the start of the pandemic, production for The Walking Dead has been put on pause. But that did not stop The Walking Dead star Jeffrey Dean Morgan and his wife Hilarie Burton Morgan to bring us new content every week since last month as Friday Night In With The Morgans is the show to watch every week as them two along with new guests updates the fans with their daily lives during the pandemic. Friday Night In With The Morgans has been well recieved and everyone wants more of it. This week, Samantha Morton is a guest on the show and there are a few new things that we have learned from her during the episode.

Life for Her Overseas During the Pandemic

Samantha currently lives in the north of England. She is also planning to move to the south of England, which would be about four hours away from where she is currently living. She wants to move closer to the city so she can get farmimg materials. Samantha also said that her area finally got internet a year ago. This really surprised me as I did not know that the internet signals were very low in that area in the way she described it. Jeffrey Dean Morgan also said that the internet goes out only once a week from where they live.

“Magical Mushrooms”

The reason Samantha wants to get farmimg materials is because she would like to grow a mushroom farm. She also wants to go to school to learn how to grow them. There was a funny moment here where Jeffrey Dean Morgan called them “magic mushrooms” as they were all laughing. Hilarie then given Samantha Morton the title of “The Walter White of Mushroom Farmers.”

Working with Jeffrey Dean Morgan

The conversation shifted to Samantha Morton talking about her role as Alpha as Samantha stated that she misses everyone in Georgia which included the staff, and the cast. Samantha also said that she missed working with Jeffrey Dean Morgan as Jeffrey felt the same way as he said that working with Samantha is the greatest privilage of his professional career. Samantha thanked him for being cool and kind on the set when they both worked with eachother. Samantha also estimated that the size of England is the same as Georgia based on how wide the landscapes are. Hilarie and Samantha also talked about Samantha’s hair growing back as Hilarie said that it is similar to the David Bowie style.

That Godzilla Mask

While Samantha Morton played as Alpha on The Walking Dead, she had to have her mask on for most of the time. Now picture doing that in the hot summer especially in Georgia for hours. Samantha Morton brought up something funny as she said that during her husband’s birthday, he had a Godzilla mask on. He wanted to take it off as she said that he now knows how it feels to have a mask like that on. That was cute.

Finally, when they were all talking about items that they found during the time that they are quarantine, Samantha Morton was asked if she found anything while she was planning the move. She said she did not as they did not need too much stuff. Samantha then talked about the woman on a show that folds everything and made a joke and said “F*** that shit” and everyone laughed. It also even made me laugh. Hilarie however, did find a photo of Jeffrey Dean Morgan from his first birthday party.

Overall, a really fun episode and I can bet that everyone in The Walking Dead family was happy to see Samantha Morton again! Also, please AMC can we finally have Negan drop some F bombs in the next season of The Walking Dead?
