Lauren Cohan is an English-American actress who portrays Maggie Rhee in AMC's The Walking Dead and Isle of the Dead.


Lauren Cohan was born on January 7th, 1982 in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, but grew up in Cherry Hill Township, New Jersey. While still in her childhood, she moved to the United Kingdom. She graduated from the University of Winchester/King Alfred's College, where she studied drama and English literature before touring with the University's theater company that she co-founded.

She then had to split her time between working in London and Los Angeles, working on films as well as non-commercial projects. She appeared in six episodes of Supernatural's third season as Bela Talbot, but was written out of the show since her character was not popular, even though the show tried to keep her on.

In 2018 she was cast in the ABC series Whiskey Cavalier as the leading female character Francesca "Frankie" Trowbridge. Despite its seeming success, it was sadly canceled after only one season.
