Supernatural/Vampire Diaries star joins The Walking Dead

Meet the Greene family in Season Two

Some of the cast of The Walking Dead‘s second season have been named, with the Greene family who occupy the farm – the setting of the second graphic novel in the original comic. Daughter Maggie Green is to be played by Lauren Cohen, who played thief Bela Talbot in Supernatural and Rose in The Vampire Diaries – so she’s no stranger to the undead.

Meanwhile Deadwood‘s Pruitt Taylor Vince is cast as farm forman Otis and¬†¬†Hershel Greene himself will be played by CSI‘s Scott Wilson.

Season Two is currently in production in Georgia, and is expected to air at the end of the year.
