Alexandra Breckenridge (American Horror Story) has landed a recurring role on Season 5 of AMC’s The Walking Dead. She has an option to become a regular on the zombie drama, which shattered another ratings record with its fifth-season premiere Sunday.
As usual, details about the character are being kept under wraps. On the breakdown, her character is listed as Samantha, an attractive, strong, smart, charming and articulate woman who also has a vulnerable side. She’s a mother with a bohemian spirit, and a talented artist. The Walking Dead producers sometimes use fake characters names to disguise the real identity of characters from the graphic novel that are joining the series, so it is unclear whether Breckenridge’s heroine will still be named Samantha when she makes her debut on the show later this season. The Walking Dead already has been renewed for Season 6.
Breckenridge is repped by Gersh, Mosaic, and attorney Joel McKuin.
