“The Walking Dead” will be back in October. But which characters are coming with it?
The hope for all actors who appear in small roles on “The Walking Dead” is that they’ll eventually be promoted to series regulars, and three of them have made enough of an impression in recent episodes to warrant that promotion. We’ve learned today that Pollyanna McIntosh (The Woman), Steven Ogg and Katelyn Nacon will become regulars starting with Season 8.
McIntosh made her debut on “The Walking Dead” this past season as Jadis, the peculiar leader of the Scavengers. Jadis and her gang stabbed Rick in the back in the season finale, so it should be interesting to see where the Scavengers go from here. Steven Ogg first appeared in Season 6 as Simon, Negan’s right-hand man. And Katelyn Nacon has been around since Season 5 as Enid.
Congrats to all three actors, who have sure earned the promotion!
