The Walking Dead – Season 4 – Andrew J. West to recur
After adding Michael Cudlitz, Josh McDermitt and Christian Serratos as iconic comic characters Abraham, Eugene and Rosita, respectively, the zombie drama will add another major player to its ranks. Greek alum Andrew J. West has boarded the series based on Robert Kirkman’s comics, The Hollywood Reporter has learned.
Character details are being kept under wraps, but West will appear in the second half of The Walking Dead’s fourth season and play Gareth, a character who does not appear in the long-running Image/Skybound series on which the AMC show is based. However, sources tell THR that while Gareth might not be playing someone from the comics, he is a remix of sorts of an unidentified character from the series. Gareth will have what sources say is a big presence and play an important character on the drama from showrunner Scott M. Gimple.
West will be credited as a guest star in season four with an option to be promoted to a series regular in the recently announced fifth season.
