AMC announced that Emmy-winner Julia Ormond (Gold Digger, Temple Grandin, Mad Men) has joined the cast of The Walking Dead: World Beyond, the third series in The Walking Dead Universe, currently filming in and around Richmond, VA and set to premiere in spring 2020.
A series regular, Ormond will play Elizabeth, the charismatic leader of a large, sophisticated and formidable force.
Co-created by Scott M. Gimple and Showrunner Matt Negrete, The Walking Dead: World Beyond also stars Aliyah Royale, Alexa Mansour, Annet Mahendru, Nicolas Cantu, Hal Cumpston and Nico Tortorella.
Also joining the show’s series regulars in recurring guest roles this season are Natalie Gold (Succession, The Land of Steady Habits) as Lyla, a mysterious figure operating in the shadows on behalf of the cause she believes in; Al Calderon (Step Up: High Water) as Barca; Scott Adsit (Veep, 30 Rock) as Tony; and Ted Sutherland (Fear Street, Rise) as Percy.
The Walking Dead: World Beyond will focus on the first generation raised in the zombie apocalypse. Some will become heroes. Some will become villains. In the end, all of them will be changed forever. Grown-up and cemented in their identities, both good and bad.
