There have been a few photos and a poster from the Frank Darabont shoot and Andrew Lincoln in character as Rick Grimes, but this is the first time we have seen the full cast together for the first season of AMC’s The Walking Dead – The adaption of Robert Kirkman’s zombie comic.
From left to right we have a zombie, possibly Emma Bell as Amy , Jon Bernthal as Shane Walsh, Steven Yuen as Glenn, Sarah Wayne Callies as Lori Grimes, Chandler Riggs as Carl Grimes, Andrew Lincoln as Rick Grimes, Jeffrey DeMunn as Dale and Laurie Holden as Andrea.
The photo looks great and matches the style of the comic book. Everyone looks spot on, but I still have a niggling doubt about Lincoln as the lead. Doesn’t look quite right, but will wait to see him in action.
AMC has added to the cast of Frank Darabont’s apocalyptic zombie drama “The Walking Dead.”
The production has tapped Laurie Holden for the role of Andrea, a key member of the survivor group who has a proficiency with a sniper rifle and falls for a man twice her age.Holden was in writer-producer-director Darabont’s “The Mist” and had a recurring role in the final season of FX’s “The Shield.” She is repped by APA and Framework.
Also, Adam Fierro has joined the production as a consulting producer. The ICM-repped Fierro has worked on such serialized dramas as “Dexter,” “Shield” and “24.”In addition, newcomer Steven Yeun has been added to the cast as Glenn. He and Holden join Andrew Lincoln, Jeffrey DeMunn and Jon Bernthal on the show.
