FANS of The Walking Dead fear one of their favourite characters is going to be killed off after the actor who plays him revealed a dramatic new look.
Jerry is instantly recognisable to viewers of the AMC’s post-apocalyptic drama thanks to his long curly locks and a messy beard.
So when actor Cooper Andrews, 35, posted on social media a photo of himself looking clean-shaven and with cropped hair it got people talking.
With bosses having teased there will be a number of characters killed off in the season 10 finale later this year, fans have speculated Jerry could be among them.
Sharing his new coronavirus lockdown inspired appearance with his Instagram followers, Andrews said: "Okay, so since everyone's growing out their beard or their moustache, I figured I would shave mine.
Words about things. #IJustFeltLikeRunning #OrDidI

"It's been the first time in a little over four years that I've done it this way and my face is cold.
"That is the only reason. I mean, there's other reasons but that's a reason.”
Fans were quick to guess that the reason is that Jerry has been axed from the show.
One commented: "No more Jerry.. Jerry no beard is not Jerry.”
Another said: "Jerry obviously dies then.”
Another simply stated: "RIP Jerry."
Last month it was announced the eagerly anticipated season 10 finale of The Walking Dead has been postponed due to the ongoing COVD-19 pandemic.
When one poster suggested Andrews could just grow his hair and beard back, another responded: "Nah he can't, they start filming at the end of May. No way he gets it back in time. Jerry is toast.”
The season 10 finale will now air as a special on FOX in the UK.
A spokesman said: "The current season will end with its 15th episode on April 5.
“The planned finale will appear as a special episode later in the year.”
You can catch up on the show on NOW TV.
