With fans buzzing over a Walking Dead spinoff, AMC has now given viewers something else to talk about:
Christian Serratos (The Twilight Saga, The Secret Life of the American Teenager) has been cast in a role familiar to fans of the graphic novel on which this cable smash is based:
She will join the series in Season 4 as Rosita Espinosa, a tough-as-nails character who managed to survive the zombie apocalypse and who debuted in Issue 53 of the original Walking Dead.
Serratos will debut some time this fall and has an option to become a series regular on Season 5.
The Walking Dead Season 4, meanwhile, premieres October 13.
