Sarah Wayne Callies (Prison Break) has been cast in the lead female role of AMC’s upcoming TV series adaptation of The Walking Dead. To those of you that don’t know, The Walking Dead is a wildly successful and critically acclaimed comic book series by Robert Kirkman which tells the story of a cop named Rick Grimes and his family as they try to survive after a zombie apocalypse. The Ausiello Files reports that Callies will be playing the role of Rick Grimes wife, Lori.
Ms. Callies will now be joining the cast which already includes Andrew Lincoln as Rick Grimes and Jon Bernthal as Shane Walsh, Rick Grimes’ best friend and partner in the comic book series. AMC has already ordered 6 episodes of the Frank Darabont (The Shawshank Redemption, The Mist)-produced series and it is currently set to premier during AMC’s annual Fearfest programming block in October. AMC is producing two of the best TV series right now (Mad Men, Breaking Bad) so this is definitely a series to keep your eyes on.
