Princess (Paola Lazaro) and Negan (Jeffrey Dean Morgan) have never had the chance to meet — either on the show, or in the comics — but the two actors believe that might change in Season 11 and that the two might become unlikely allies. Both of them, however, believe that their characters would rub the returned Maggie (Lauren Cohan) entirely the wrong way, though for drastically different reasons.

Appearing on Jeffrey Dean Morgan's talk show 'Friday Night in with the Morgans', Lazaro answered a question about which character she felt Princess would get along with the most. "I think Princess and Negan would get along greatly," she said. "Maybe at first, they'd be like cats," she added, hissing for effect. "Maybe at first they wouldn't get along, but I think they're both wild."

"They're both kinda outsiders," agrees Morgan. "I think there'd be an interesting dynamic." Morgan's wife Hilarie Burton also agrees. "They're both having more fun than anyone else in the room," Burton said. Of course, it helps that Princess is meeting Negan after he's turned over his new leaf, unlike the rest of the survivors who have all experienced firsthand just what Negan is capable of and are still having a hard time learning to trust him.

This has never been more true than in the case of Maggie, whose husband was beaten to death by Negan right in front of her very eyes in one of the series' most unforgettable moments. Maggie has been away from the show for a while, but the latest episodes of 'The Walking Dead' saw her return. When she and Negan had last laid eyes on each other, Negan was locked up and Maggie believed Negan was too pitiful to even be worth killing.

Seeing Negan out and about, however, might just get under Maggie's skin and Princess is probably not going to be helpful. "I think I would irritate Maggie to the core," Lazaro said. "She's a very serious woman, and she's going through a lot, and then I come in with that big smile. I'm like, 'Hey! I'm happy to be here'." Morgan joked, "We have that in common, too. I'm gonna irritate Maggie also." It's fair to say that Morgan was making quite the understatement there.
