The Walking Dead cast adds American Horror Story veteran

Which American Horror Story star is joining the cast of the hit zombie show?

The Walking Dead smashed US cable records last Sunday when over 17 million people tuned in for the Season 5 opener. Much like the viewing figures and Rick’s beard, the cast keeps getting bigger.

American Horror Story’s Alexandra Breckenridge has been confirmed to be joining the cast for Season 5. Breckenridge played Young Moira in the first season of AHS and Kaylee in the third season.

Details about Breckenridge’s character in The Walking Dead are still very hush hush, but we know she’s called Samantha and she’s “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.”

Breckenridge is one of several to join the show for Season 5 of the hit zombie show. AMC announced Seth Gilliam (The Wire) and Tyler James Williams (Everybody Hates Chris) would be joining the cast earlier this year.

The Walking Dead Season 5 is currently airing on Mondays at 10 pm on FOX. You can buy The Walking Dead Season 1-3 on DVD for £35 at Amazon.co.uk. Get a behind-the-scenes look at The Walking Dead with the latest issue of SciFiNow.
