With the premiere of ‘Fear the Walking Dead‘ crawling closer, AMC has decided to release a few new stills to help introduce us to the cast. Even the original ‘The Walking Dead’ had a bit of a leg up with comic readers knowing who many of the characters were in advance. How will ‘Fear the Walking Dead’ stack up with us not knowing who anyone is? Well, AMC wants to help change that by introducing us to more of the new lead characters and get to know more about the ones they’ve already told us about.
First up lets take a look at the new images which have popped up online! In the first shot we have the couple who are dating which appear to be the leads in the series which are Cliff Curtis as Travis, Kim Dickens as Madison. With them are Madison’s children who are Alycia Debnam-Carey playing Alicia and Frank Dillane playing Nick.
Next up is a shot of Elizabeth Rodriguez as Lisa who is with Lorenzo James Henrie who is playing Christopher which are another of the two leads on the series. These two are Tavis’ ex-wife and son.
What we know about the two is that:
Christopher Manawa is a rebellious teenager with a cause. He has both his father’s do-good attitude and his mother’s edge. The product of divorced parents, Christopher often feels that he and his mother are his father’s forgotten family. He resents his father’s insistence on bringing the two families closer because he wants nothing more than to break away from the Clarks and be his father’s sole priority.
Liza Ortiz is a single mother working to put herself through nursing school – she has no time for b.s. For many years she was trapped in an unhappy marriage, but now that she’s on her own she’s finally chasing her dream. Liza is a multi-tasking whirlwind that doesn’t give herself any breaks when it comes to her future or raising her son.
Clearly Lisa is going to have a major impact on the show either as a major character or a major death as she is the central focus of another promotional shot for the series.
Finally we have a shot of just Travis who is the center of a few of the major relationships on the series.
With the new images we learned a bit more about Chris and Lisa though there will still be a lot to learn to have these characters keep us as riveted to our seats as Rick Grimes and company do on ‘The Walking Dead.’ I for one can’t wait to check them out!
