Scott began his career in 1967 in the music industry after featuring in the movie’s “in the heat of the night” as well as the classic movie “cold blood”. Wilson was born on March 29, 1942. He was born in a small town in Georgia.

His first movie was in the heat of the night where he acted as the lead role. In 1974, he also co-starred in the film “The great Gaspy”. For the younger generation, however, Scott will only be known as Hershel Greene who was a lonely peasant farmer who had lost his wife who was featured in the walking dead from 2011 up until 2014.

Friends and fans of Scott have all trooper to Twitter and the fan page of the walking dead to pay their respects to the actor. This was immediately after this tweet “We are deeply saddened to report that Scott Wilson is dead. The incredible actor who acted as Hershel Greene on the #Thewalkingdead has passed away at the age of 76. Such a brilliant actor that did the character justice. My heartfelt condolences go to his family and friends. May he Rest in peace.”

In a statement, AMC described the actor as a dedicated and talented actor who knew how to play his characters well and that the role that he played “lived at the emotional core of the show.”

Kary Parton who played the role of Ezekiel in the walking dead said that the first time he had met Scott Wilson, Scott had given him a big hug and said that this thing he had become a part of was a huge family.

Wilson’s character died in the season 4 of the show. Less than an hour before the news of his death was made known to the public, the producer of the show Angela Kang announced that the character Hershel Greene would be reappearing in forthcoming season 9.


Charles Hardwick who hosts an after show the talking dead in AMC went on to pay tribute to the veteran actor on Instagram saying “I will miss him. I will miss those gentle and very compassionate eyes of his. I’m so sad that the world has to live without him tonight”.

One fan tweeted “An incredible and amazing actor who was taken too soon. Rest in peace Scott” Another fan who is also devoted to the movie went on to post about the actor “I’m very saddened by this news. He was as perfect as Hershel Greene. He was the best possible actor for the part that anyone could have asked for and I’m not sure they can get any other actor his role. Such a brilliant actor that did the role justice.”

We are sending our heartfelt condolences to the family. We hope that they are granted the fortitude to bear the loss.
