“Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles’ ” Alanna Masterson, pictured, is joining the cast of AMC’s fourth season of the smash “The Walking Dead”, says Deadline.
She will recur in the upcoming fourth season with an option to become a regular in Season 5 of the zombie drama. Details on her role are scarce but she will be introduced in the middle of the season as a new survivor in the world of the walking dead. There is chatter that the character might be Tara Chalmers from the comic books but the network is keeping mum.
The description of Tara Chalmers doesn’t quite match as she’s described as the older sister of April Chalmers and the daughter of David Chalmers, explains “The Walking Dead Wiki”. She is described as being overweight, and always wearing different colored muu-muu’s. She is also described as having her mother’s temper and single-mindedness.
Masterson joins another major new addition to “The Walking Dead,” Christian Serratos.
Season 4 of “The Walking Dead” returns to AMC in October 13 at 9pm ET.
