With Rick Grimes and company back on the road, it's time to meet some new faces. Up first: Someone with some serious 'Horror' experience.
The Hollywood Reporter has the news that ' American Horror Story ' veteran Alexandra Breckenridge is joining the cast of ' The Walking Dead ' for its currently airing fifth season. Breckenridge appeared on the first season of 'AHS' as the young, seductive Murder House ghost who you may recall from scenes like this:
Will she pull those same moves on Rick, Daryl Dixon or any of the other traveling survivors? Here's what we know about Breckenridge's character so far: Casting breakdowns call her 'Samantha,' and describe her as 'an attractive, strong, smart, charming and articulate woman with a vulnerable side. She's a mother with a bohemian spirit, and a talented artist.'
THR notes that the character's name and some of the details are likely to change between the breakdown and the show, so who's to say what this 'Samantha' is really all about. But it sounds like she's important: Breckenridge is recurring throughout season five, and has an option to be promoted to series regular in season six.
