TV: Casting Rounding Out for Darabont’s ‘The Walking Dead’

AMC continues to add to the cast of Frank Darabont’s apocalyptic zombie drama The Walking Dead by tapping Laurie Holden (Silent Hill) 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.” 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. The Image Comics adaptation is set among a group of zombie survivors of an apocalypse who are led by a police officer, Rick Grimes, in search of a safe place to live. Laurie Holden
