"Staying healthy is so much just about me being happy and a workout that makes me happy," revealed Cohan. "I try to follow the 10,000 steps rules which is not difficult if I'm busy working!"

The actress revealed she also stays fit with pilates and ballet.

The Walking Dead is one of the highest-rated series on television, but the brunette bombshell never saw the success coming.

"No, I definitely never anticipated it being that big!" she spilled

And while the 32-year-old has found major success on the show, she originally thought her career would lead her down a comedic path.

"I never really thought I'd end up doing supernatural genres,” she explained. “When I started acting I was drawn to comedy and that's what I thought I'd end up doing." Despite the change in genre, Cohan is having a blast on the gritty and dark drama. "It's fun to do something like Walking Dead," she added.
