Ryan Hurst, who played Opie on Sons, has been cast in as Beta, a pivotal role in the upcoming Whisperers War arc on The Walking Dead. Beta plays the right-hand man to the major villain, Alpha (who will be played by Oscar nominee Samantha Morton), while Alpha’s daughter, Lydia, was cast over the weekend. The Whisperers are a community comprised of people who wear the skins of zombies in order to roam among the undead.
New showrunner Angela Kang is pulling out all the stops in the casting department next season, with the departures of Andrew Lincoln and Lauren Cohan. In addition to Morton and Hurst, Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them star Dan Fogler is also joining the cast along with Tony nominee Lauren Ridloff. Nadia Hilker, Angel Theory, and Eleanor Matsuura have also joined the cast.
