Dr. Denise Cloyd is a character straight from the comics, whose medical and surgical skills become critical after the death of Peter a.k.a. #PorchDick

Wever, who was announced as a new cast member at Comic Con alongside Ethan Embry, is best known for her role in Nurse Jackie.

According to showrunner Scott Gimple:

“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.”

From the looks of the first season 6 trailer, he appears to be working hard at galvanising the community against Rick and co. The next Shane/Governor then?

This is what Gimple had to say about Heath, who’s a supply runner and also a character from the comics:

“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.”

The Walking Dead premieres on AMC on Oct 11. AMC can be seen on Singtel TV, Channel 322.
