AMC have released new stills, via Entertainment Weekly, from the upcoming sixth season of ‘The Walking Dead.’ We get another glimpse of Corey Hawkins as Heath, as well as our first look at Merritt Wever as Dr. Denise Cloyd and Ethan Embry as Carter.
Ethan Embry (Grace and Frankie) will be playing Carter. “Ethan plays a combo of a few characters that we actually haven’t hit yet or weren’t able to hit in other characters. He is an Alexandrian, and has been there the whole time, just quite busy.” showrunner Scott M. Gimple told EW.
Merritt Wever (Nurse Jackie) will be playing Dr. Denise Cloyd, “a medic becomes critical in the community of Alexandria after the death of Pete, and in the comic her skills as a surgeon prove pivotal, especially after a ghastly injury incurred by one of the main characters—an injury which may or may not happen on the TV version.”
The above photo is another glimpse of Corey Hawkins character Heath, “a supply-runner for the town (and one who becomes romantically linked to Denise in the original source material).”
“He’s terrific and I’m so excited to see him bring Heath to life. It’s been fun and he dove in with both feet. He’s tough and skeptical when the cameras are rolling, and then when they’re off he’s just like a goofy fan. He’s really, really excited to be there.” said Gimple.
Stars: Norman Reedus as Daryl, Andrew Lincoln as Rick, Chandler Riggs as Carl, Danai Gurira as Michonne, Melissa McBride as Carol, Sonequa Martin-Green as Sasha, Lauren Cohan as Maggie, Steven Yeun as Glenn, Michael Cudlitz as Abraham, Josh McDermitt as Eugene, Alanna Masterson as Tara, Christian Serratos as Rosita, Lennie James as Morgan, Seth Gilliam as Father Gabriel, Tovah Feldshuh as Deanna, Ross Marquand as Aaron, Alexandra Breckenridge as Jesse, and Austin Nichols as Spencer.
