Exclusive: Sarah Wayne Callies Joins 'Walking Dead'

sarah-wayne-calliesImage Credit: David Livingston/Getty ImagesThis just in: Prison Break fave Sarah Wayne Callies has just scored the female lead in AMC’s eagerly anticipated The Walking Dead series, based on Robert Kirkman’s megapopular comic books!

The Ausiello Files fave will portray Lori Grimes, the slowly-unraveling wife of the show’s hero, Rick (Andrew Lincoln). Which oughta be a nice stretch for her: How do you play disturbed by zombie gore and such after you’ve already played someone who was beheaded? (Yes, I know, it was a hoax!)

So how much more hyped about the show are you now than you were a second before you read that headline? You can put it on a scale of 1 to a gazillion if it makes it easier.

    I love Sarah Wayne Callies. I’ve never heard of this show but I will definitely tune in for her.

    • Q

      Did you catch her on House this week? She was excellent.

      • King

        Knew she was doing House but I have never seen the show. I guess I will have to look for her episode. :)

    • Kate

      Exactly my thought ! Hope this show will be a hit.

  • ayla

    love it!
    but it would have been perfection if they’d have cast Jamie Bamber instead of Andrew Lincoln (no offence to the latter). It’s not too late AMC, go back on that decision!!!!

    • roadi

      Jamie Bamber is a regular on “Law & Order: UK”, so he is kinda busy. :(

  • Monica

    looks like I am gonna have to check this out. I have missed Sarah Wayne Callies,

  • Bree

    Can’t stand her, she was terrible on Prison Break.

  • Tammy

    Great news! Enjoyed Sarah in Prison Break and was totally bummed when her character was “decapitated”. Never heard of Walking Dead. Will definately keep an eye out for it now!
