According to a new report from The Hollywood Reporter, The Walking Dead season 5 peeps are bringing on a new regular character for action, but his identity is being kept under wraps at the moment. He’s be played by actor, Seth Gilliam (left).
They are speculating that Seth will play character, Gabriel Stokes, a preacher who first crosses paths with Rick in the 61st issue of the comics, just before the ragtag band of survivors encounters the Hunters (aka the cannibals). Not long afterward, Gabriel reveals the dark lengths to which he went in order to ensure his survival and becomes a member of Rick’s community. Again, this is just speculation, right now, and hasn’t been officially confirmed.
On the other hand, Seth’s character is officially described as being friendly with a puckish demeanor who also has a haunted side. Season 5 filming has already begun. Andrew J. West (Gareth), Alanna Masterson (Tara) and Christian Serratos (Rosita) have all been promoted to regulars for season five way back in March 2014 after serving up recurring action in season four.
Seth Gilliam’s acting resume includes roles in MTV’s Teen Wolf, Oz,Homeland,The Good Wife, and HBO’s “The Wire.” Stay tuned. Season 5 premieres this Fall 2014. Also, get your favorite TV show stuff, and more by Clicking Here.
