For months, Jon Bernthal has been living under a strict gag order that forbid him from talking about the shocking death of his character Shane on "The Walking Dead" this past weekend. And yet, he admitted to breaking the order and telling one person on "Late Show" (Weeknights, 11:35 p.m. ET on CBS).

"I hope that the warlords at AMC won't hunt me down for this, but I did tell one person," he admitted. "I told my grandmother."

But he had a good reason for doing so, after getting an earful from his grandmother after an earlier episode featured a sex scene in the woods between him and Sarah Wayne Callies, who plays Shane's best friend Rick's wife Lori.

According to Bernthal, his grandmother called him up and said, "Jon, I saw you on TV having sex in the woods and you're married now and you really shouldn't do that anymore; especially with another married woman. And if you're going to have sex, do it inside, not in the woods."

So he thought it prudent to give her a heads up on this major development. As for Bernthal's career now that his gig at AMC is up, he excitedly confirmed earlier reports that he'd been tapped to reunite with former "Dead" showrunner Frank Darabont on his new TNT project, "L.A. Noir."

"L.A. Noir" is a pilot in development for TNT starring Neal McDonough and Jon Bernthal. "The Walking Dead" airs its season finale this Sunday at 9 p.m. ET on AMC. "Late Show" airs weeknights at 11:35 p.m. ET on CBS.
