This is absolutely in-friggin-credible.

Laurie Holden, most famous for her portrayal of Andrea on The Walking Dead, has proven that not only did she play a badass zombie killer, but she's apparently a badass in real life!

The actress worked alongside an organization known as Operation Underground Railroad that targets sex traffickers on a mission in Colombia where she helped them rescue 55 underage sex workers.

Oh, and the entire thing was caught on camera for Nightline!

The sting itself proved to be complicated because in Colombia money must be exchanged before legal action can be taken against sex traffickers, so the organization set up a fake bachelor party where the payment would take place.

So, what was Laurie's part in all of this?

While the arrest happens, the actress and a bunch of social workers move in to comfort the girls while an arrest is happening.

Heartbreakingly enough, the girls only seem concerned about one thing…

Whether they'll be paid for their services or not.

The entire video is absolutely heartbreaking to watch and you can clearly see the toll it takes on Laurie.

However, the work that she and Operation Underground Railroad are doing is, clearly, incredibly important.

Keep on being a baddass both onscreen and off, gurl!

You can watch the whole crazy ordeal for yourself (below)!!!

    Why do you constantly do a news piece on COLOMBIA and spell it wrong? The people on this website are suppose to be writers, then do a spell check….write much.

    Yeah, yeah, I hate, hate, hate when I see underage girls being exploited by pimps. BUT, in South America, sex does not have this huge connotation as wrong or sin, like in the United States, because latin americans are more hypocrit than anything in the world. the whole latin america is crazy christian religious, but still a bunch of whores. the poor people of latin america just do what they have to do in order to make money. moms push their daughters into prostitution in order to make money. in a way, girls don't feel guilty for charging for sex. latin america is not like here where there is those huge "fake libertarian" groups, trying to free women from a slavery that DOESNT EXIST. there are very, very, very few women in american there were really trafficked. they all work as prostitutes because if they work for a minimum wage they'll go hungry. this whole demonization or prostitution coming from america is a way to brainwash people into thinking prostitution is that horrible, which is not, they just want people to abstain from sex. it's amazing!
