- Sarah Wayne Callies was in favor of Lori dying the same way the character died in the Comic Series. In an interview she stated, "I argued that it was necessary to kill Lori and I feel very strongly that for all of the other deviations we may have from the comic book, killing Lori does something to Rick that is vital for the story and can't be done any other way."
- Sarah's husband, Josh Winterhalt, is a martial arts instructor. They have one daughter, Keala, who was born in 2007.
- Sarah flew out to set (via helicopter) just to reprise her role in Home.
