There are currently no details on Grace’s role in the show, which are expected to be announced at a later date. Best known for her roles as Shannon Rutherford on Lost and Kim Mills in the Taken movie franchise, Grace will be joining an already stellar lineup, which now includes actress Jenna Elfman.
The casting news comes hot on the heels of the revelation that fan favorite Morgan Jones (Lennie James) is the character crossing over from The Walking Dead to the spinoff, after weeks of speculation.
“The hardest part is … leaving The Walking Dead. Leaving the cast, leaving that crew,” actor Lennie James said on Talking Dead this week, confirming his time spent away working on the spinoff series.
Deadwood star Garret Dillahunt has also been announced as a new recruit, joining regular cast members Kim Dickens, Frank Dillane, Alycia Debnam-Carey, Colman Domingo, and Danay Garcia. Dillahunt – a die-hard fan of the show – had previously tried and failed to win the role of Negan, played to terrifying perfection by Jeffrey Dean Morgan.
Production on FTWD is said to have moved from Baja California, Mexico to Texas, where the new episodes will be based. It is expected to hit screens mid-2018.
