If you are a big fan of The Walking Dead like us, then you know pretty well who Melissa McBride is. The 50-year-old actress has been portraying Carol Peletier –the middle aged widow and caring mother to her daughter Sophia –since the AMC series premiered.
It has been her biggest role to date. Probably you also know her character could have a new romantic interest this season.
But what we really want to know, is if Melissa McBride has a real life romance with someone?
Melissa Suzanne McBride was born May 23, 1965. McBride began her professional acting career in 1991 in Atlanta, Georgia. She made her debut on television in 1993 on an episode of ABC legal drama Matlock and in later years appeared in TV movies, such as In the Heat of the Night: Give Me Your Life, and Her Deadly Rival.

It appears though as if she doesn’t have any romances going on. In fact, we have no idea if she’s ever been in a relationship. No boyfriend or girlfriend can be found, though she is said to get a long great with co-star Norman Reedus, but there is no indication she is dating at the moment.
