Lauren Cohan (pictured inside) is joining the zombie resistance. The alum of “Supernatural,” “Vampire Diaries” and “Chuck” has landed a pivotal role on AMC’s second season of The Walking Dead.
Cohan will recur as “Maggie Greene,” the sharp, self-reliant daughter of farm owner Hershel Greene and a love interest for Glenn (Steven Yuen), reports TV Guide Magazine.
The role of Hershel, meanwhile, will be played by acting vet Scott Wilson.
The duo join fellow new Dead hire Pruitt Taylor Vince, who was cast as the foreman at Hershel’s Farm — which is where much of Season 2 will be set.
The project is set among a group of zombie survivors of an apocalypse who are led by a police officer, Rick Grimes (Andrew Lincoln), in search of a safe place to live. Check out the first two images of the undead from set in Atlanta, Georgia.
