Don't worry about it those who live Only six episodes?

Looking back, do you regret doing it? Your farewell The Walking Dead ?

No, because I couldn't continue living in Georgia anymore and I had to come home to be with my family again. For the first five years of their lives, my kids thought they were on vacation. For my part, I was tired of constantly traveling back and forth and working very intensively for eight months of the year. After they grew up, it was no longer possible to live like this and I had to return to England to raise my two children. Finally, I'm back for good!
