NOT every member of The Walking Dead’s cast has been satisfied with their time on the long-running zombie drama.
The AMC smash hit has been running for almost a decade, meaning many of the stars share a close bond.
However, Lennie James, who plays Morgan and Jeffrey Dean Morgan, who plays Negan have now aired their frustrations at being kept away from each other on screen.
They almost crossed path in the season 7 finale, The First Day of the Rest of Your Life, in which an armed Morgan joined the cavalry led by Hilltop and Kingdom leaders Maggie (Lauren Cohan) and King Ezekiel (Khary Payton) to defend against a Saviour and Scavenger assault of the Alexandria community.
However, this never came to be and James has now moved over to spin-off series Fear The Walking Dead, meaning there’s a good chance the pair will never get the chance to act alongside each other.
Morgan told James in the latest episode of his lockdown show Friday Night In with The Morgans: "I've always been a fan of The Walking Dead, before I was ever a part of this world I was a big fan. And I was a big fan, really, of you."
He continued: "You were one of the people that always so stood out for me. So when I joined the show, I looked so forward to having some scenes with you."
Labelling the two characters "very interesting and kind of diametrically opposite in their way of thinking," Morgan then asked James what he thought would happen if the pair ever came face to face.
"The two of them in the same room is never gonna be casual," James retorted
"It's never gonna be a kind of, 'How are you doing?' It's going to be a clash."
He went on: "One of the things I regret most about my time on The Walking Dead and I regret very little, is there are a couple of people who became friends, but we never actually got to do any scenes together.
"You and [Abraham Ford actor Michael] Cudlitz are at the top of my list [of actors] that I'm just gutted I never got a chance to [work with]."
Morgan replied: "It never happened. I got there and then you left, and it's one of my biggest regrets."
However, James said that he didn’t regret moving over to the spin-off shown joking his only options were" leave and go to Fear, or do a scene with Negan and die!"
The comments come after The Walking Dead’s broadcaster beat franchise creator Robert Kirkman at court in the culmination of a long-running money feud.
The Walking Dead season 10 will conclude later this year on AMC in the US and Sky Atlantic or NOW TV in the UK.
