Ethan Embry will be playing the role of Carter. Scott Gimple says Carter serves as a composite of different people from the original comic. “Ethan plays a combo of a few characters that we actually haven’t hit yet or weren’t able to hit in other characters,” says Gimple. “He is an Alexandrian, and has been there the whole time, just quite busy.”
Merritt Wever will be playing Dr. Denise Cloyd, who is a character from The Walking Dead comic.
Corey Hawkins will be playing a character named Heath from the comic who is a supply-runner for the town. Gimple had this say about Hawkins in the role: “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.”
