    I’m on Lauren Cohan’s side on this one. She’s completely underused on the show. Apparently she only makes 40,000 to 60,000 per episode. (Along with Danai and Melissa) While Andrew and Norman make 550,000 and 600,000 roughly. Completely unacceptable. Here’s my source http://comicbook.com/thewalkingdead/2017/10/22/the-walking-dead-season-8-cast-salary/#5

      But Maggie didn’t have much interesting storyline until season 7? I don’t mind her leaving.

        well that’s why I agree with Lauren leaving as well. She’s completely underused on the show. She’s talented and deserves to work more

    I’m glad Scott Gimple is being replaced. Too bad it couldn’t have happened before Carl Grimes (Chandler Riggs) was written out of the show. And Lauren Cohan being that much underpaid is a #@$%&* disgrace! Yes Andy & Norman have been in more episodes, been with the show since Season 1, & might have a longer c.v. of acting credits. But if the ratio reported on multiple sites is true I wouldn’t blame her for leaving. Especially before she’s killed off unceremoniously like Chandler Riggs. I know AMC doesn’t have HBO/Game of Thrones money. But they need stop being so cheap. I also know it’s easy to spend other people’s money but you have to spend $$ to make it. Especially in entertainment. Actors aren’t just interchangeable cogs in a machine or widgets. Fans care. Plus AMC is making a much larger share of the profits from TWD & Fear TWD than they did off of Breaking Bad or Mad Men.
