Damn, I just woke up! Extremely sad news, I loved Scott as much I loved Hershel. The only difference is that Scott was a real person, while Hershel was just a fictional character. Man, that hit me hard... R.I.P. Scott Wilson. You were truly a great actor and most importantly an amazing human being... you will be missed for sure!!! ;(

Fucking hell man, him being casted as Hershel was one of the few reasons, if not the only reason why I kept watching the show. To see him die in the show was painful enough, but now in real life? I feel like shredding tears at the moment.
Rest in Peace, Scott. May you live in a better, friendlier world.
Got home from work last night ready to pass out only to find this news out while searching the internet before hitting the hay. Ruined a great night.
Scott was phenomenal on the show and he took Hershel to a whole new level. His skill as a wise old man with a Santa beard is unmatched, and it was astonishing to watch the undead work turn him from a stubborn old dude into the primary moral compass.
Hopefully next week on Talking Dead they will have a tribute for him, since they couldn't do it tonight. Hopefully the cast members including the current and former will share there tributes and memories with Scott on set and off set. I know that he didnt appear in some of the same seasons as some of them but he still formed friendships with them.
