The cast of the walking dead has been growing over the past 5 seasons. Robert Kirkman created comics from which these characters sprung. Viewership has grown attached to a band of people that have clutched to one another for survival. Psychological and physical tolls that bring individuals storming to their knees. They have become our family and we watch in anticipation for what is to come next. The walking dead cast marches through a post-apocalyptic battlefield, fighting those that have fallen to disease and plagues that have rendered them brain dead with cannibalistic taste on their mind. They have paid witness to atrocities from which they can never hide and must try to cope before they fall to the hordes of the walking dead.
Below is a little bio of each character and their role on the show!
