We all know that someone from Rick’s beloved gang is going to be killed brutally by Negan right at the beginning of the first episode, and we are going to lose one of the cardinal member or members of the team. Who is it going to be? Only time can tell. However, according to TVLine’s Michael Ausiello, Walking Dead is going to add 2 new characters to the Walking Dead’s main roster. He has also told a little bit about the character’s nature, and personality. We also were able to pull in some information about the actresses that are currently being considered for these roles. Here are the character descriptions from Michale Ausiello and the probable actors who would play these characters ->
1) Anna Gunn as “Naomi”
According to Ausiello “Naomi is a grandmotherly type who, having lost so many loved ones, is now willing to do whatever it takes not to have to bury any more”, He also hinted that these characters are not picked up directly from the comics, so they are actually new!
