These days, our knowledge of celebrities too often originates with paparazzi images and snarky quotes by anonymous "insiders." After a while, it's easy to forget that stars are real people. That's why HuffPost Celebrity decided to launch its all-new #nofilter quick-fire question and answer series. Because how well do you know someone until they've shared their guiltiest pleasures?
Laurie Holden's character on "The Walking Dead," Andrea, is rather controversial these days. As one of the original survivors of a zombie apocalypse, her recent actions (among them shacking up with the Governor and splitting from Rick and the group) have baffled many.
