Alanna Masterson Joins THE WALKING DEAD
The ranks of THE WALKING DEAD's survivors continues to grow.
According to Deadline, Alanna Masterson is the latest to join Rick Grimes and Co. in their ongoing survival against the undead in AMC's hit series.
Masteron's role has not been revealed, but the site notes that rumors have arisen that she may take on the role of comic character 'Tara Chalmers.' Masterson's deal includes a recurring role for the fourth season, with an option to be bumped up to a regular in season five.
As previously reported, TWILIGHT's Christian Serratos has also signed on to star as Rosita Espinosa in the fourth season.
In the highly anticipated new season, Rick Grimes (Andrew Lincoln) and the group are fostering a thriving community in the safe Haven of the prison. Sadly, in this brutal world, happiness is short-lived and walkers and outside threats are no match for danger brewing inside the fences. The group's home and new way of life will be thoroughly tested, and their struggle to survive has never been so perilous. Season 4 also introduces several new characters including Bob Stookey (Lawrence Gilliard Jr., "The Wire").
Based on the comic book series written by Robert Kirkman and published by Image Comics, "The Walking Dead" stars Lincoln, Norman Reedus, Steven Yeun, Lauren Cohan, Chandler Riggs, Scott Wilson, Melissa McBride, David Morrissey, Emily Kinney, DanaiGurira, Chad Coleman and Sonequa Martin-Green. The series is executive produced by Scott M. Gimple, Robert Kirkman, Gale Anne Hurd, David Alpert, Tom Luse and Greg Nicotero.
