Laurie Holden (from “The Mist”) and Steven Yeun have been cast for the roles of Andrea, (one of two sisters who join the survivors of the zombie plague) and Glenn (an “expert scavenger”) in ABC’s zombie series “The Walking Dead.”
The pair join previously announced cast members Andrew Lincoln (as Rick Grimes), Sarah Wayne Callies (Lori Grimes), Jon Bernthal (Rick’s police partner, Shane), and Jeffrey DeMunn (undisclosed role). Frank Darabont (“The Mist,” “Shawshank Redemption”) will serve as series writer, producer and director.
Awesome, Laurie Holden is in a lot of movies I like. She’s pretty good at playing a tough chick when she wants to as well. (Plays a badass cop chick in “Silent Hill”)
In “Walking Dead” creator Robert Kirkman’s comics, Andrea discovered a natural talent as the team’s best sharpshooter, while Glenn’s ability to navigate the zombie-infested cities and find supplies made him a valuable asset to the group.
