Several new actors have joined the cast of The Walking Dead over the past few days. In addition to the recently announced Chandler Riggs as Carl Grimes, actors Linds Edwards and Jim Coleman have also reportedly signed on for roles in the currently shooting AMC adaptation of Robert Kirkman’s survival horror comic book series.

Both Edwards and Coleman are said to be playing new characters Leon Basset and Lambert “Lam” Kendal, respectively. The news was confirmed by Edwards himself in an interview with The Walking Dead Podcast, but the interview has since been pulled at the request of AMC.

Also recently announced was the casting of Emma Bell in the recurring role of a college student who seeks refuge with Rick Grimes and other survivors. Perhaps she’ll play Amy, the young sister to sharpshooter Andrea. In the comics, Andrea began as a mid-20s legal clerk, but the adaptation is adding a few years to the character with the casting of Laurie Holden in the role.

Breaking news from AMC...

It appears the network has given The Walking Dead a longer lifespan. They've announced a sweepstakes in which you could win a walk-on role as a zombie in the series' second season!

Can get a better confirmation that the second season is a "go."
