Walking Dead Spinoff Casts Female Lead

kim-dickensThe planned AMC spinoff for The Walking Dead has cast Kim Dickens as the female lead to play opposite of Cliff Curtis.

The untitled spinoff is working under the code name Cobalt and takes place during the same zombie apocalypse as The Walking Dead but in a different location. Dickens is playing a guidance counselor with two kids (Frank Dillane and Alycia Debnam Carey) and is dating a divorced teacher (Curtis). The counselor looks innocent but has a dark past that will likely come back to haunt her.

Dickens was in David Fincher's Gone Girl as well as roles on Treme, Deadwood and Sons of Anarchy.
