Here’s Lucille! Hilarie Burton Morgan will star as Negan’s Wife On ‘The Walking Dead’

Fans received a sweet surprise when it was revealed that Hilarie, Jeffrey Dean Morgan’s real wife, will play Lucille in the show’s additional episodes for season 10.

You read that right! The Hilarie Burton Morgan will be on The Walking Dead.

Not only that, but she will be acting alongside her real-life husband!

Jeffrey Dean Morgan in the past has said that he would want Hilarie to play his on screen wife and we finally get to see that happen.

Hilarie took to Twitter to confirm the news and showed her hubby some love.

Hilarie is no stranger to the acting world as she got her breakthrough role in 2003 playing the iconic character that is Peyton Sawyer on One Tree Hill.

She met her friend Danneel Ackles, wife of Jensen Ackles, who ultimately set her up with her future husband Jeffrey!

Jeffrey worked with Jensen on Supernatural where he played his father, John Winchester.

It was only a matter of time before both Jeffrey and Hilarie met to make the amazing couple they are now. (P.S. Danneel and Jensen made them go on blind date and it’s history from there)

Another OTH alum Bethany Joy Lenz expressed her excitement for her friend on Twitter.

Yvette Nicole Brown was equally excited as well!

Fans also reacted to the news and were happy to see Negan’s character get his well deserved background story.

We are super ecstatic to see Hilarie on our TV screens and cannot wait for the episodes to premiere!
