She may have been little Beth Greene on The Walking Dead, but in the real world, the world not yet plagued with the undead, Emily Kinney is a 29-year-old actress and accomplished recording artist. With the memory of that heartbreaking mid-season finale still fresh, she's released a music video for her brand new single "Rockstar."

What is "Rockstar" about? Well, it's about love, love between a dreamer and a musician, a poet and a Walking Dead fan (no, seriously, that comes up), all shot in a spacious brick loft in black and white. In light of recent SPOILER-FILLED events, it's bittersweet to see Kinney swaying without a care, daydreaming of simple love — and not looking over her shoulder for a hungry walker or crazy cop. 

Kinney's biggest problem here is finding that elusive rockstar to marry.
