I so loved his character, and he did an excellent job selling it.


(CNN) ~ Scott Wilson, a veteran actor who played Hershel Greene on the AMC television show "The Walking Dead," has died, according to a statement from the network.

Wilson was 76.
The series' verified Twitter account remembered the actor on Saturday. "We are deeply saddened to report that Scott Wilson, the incredible actor who played Hershel on #TheWalkingDead, has passed away at the age of 76. Our thoughts are with his family and friends. Rest in paradise, Scott. We love you!"
Wilson, whose acting credits date back to the 1967 movies "In the Heat of the Night" and "In Cold Blood," played a veterinarian turned farmer in the zombie apocalypse drama series.
He appeared in more than 30 episodes of the popular show from 2011 to 2014 before his character was killed in the fourth season.
Wilson's character "lived at the emotional core of the show," the network said in a statement. "Like Scott in our lives, Hershel was a character whose actions continue to inform our characters' choices to this day. Our hearts go out to his wife, family, friends and to the millions of fans who loved him. Scott will be missed."




"Time is too slow for those who wait; too swift for those who fear;

too long for  those who grieve; too short for those who rejoice.

But for those who love, time is eternity."
