Eleanor Matsuura came onto The Walking Dead cast as Yumiko in season nine. Along with her group, she met with the formidable 9 yr old known as Judith Grimes (Cailey Fleming). Judith took them to meet up with others in her group and then lead them on to Alexandria. Matsuura will star in the Netflix series Feel Good that will air on June 4.
Before the outbreak, Yumiko was a criminal defense lawyer. She represented Magna (Nadia Hilker) when she was on trial for murder, and they became romantically involved. After the world fell, Yumiko and Magna met up with siblings Connie (Lauren Ridloff) and Kelly (Angel Theory) and their companions Luke (Dan Fogler) and Bernie (Louis Zehner), who was later attacked and killed by a herd.
They stayed together, traveling to new communities each time one fell, leading them to meet with Judith and becoming a part of Alexandria, Hilltop and Oceanside.
Eleanor Matsuura stars in the second season of the Netflix series Feel Good
Matsuura posted on her IG, sharing her excitement for her fans to see the second season of Feel Good that will premiere on Netflix on June 4.
The character she plays will remain a mystery as there is no character name or description tied to her anywhere that I can find. It is always exciting to see our TWD Family in other projects.
Feel Good is a series created by Mae Martin and Joe Hampson. Martin also stars in the series and plays a fictionalized version of herself. In the series Mae, a recovering addict and comedian, meets George (Charlotte Ritchie), and they form a relationship. The series follows the struggles of a recovering addict and the ups and downs of a romantic relationship. The second season will focus on Mae’s past and how she deals with that while George tries to reinvent her present.
Returning cast includes Lisa Kudrow, Philip Burgers and Adrian Lukis. And joining Matsuura as new cast members will be Jordan Stephens, John Ross Bowie and Eve.
Congrats to Elenor Matsuura on her new role in the series Feel Good.
We will see Matsuura return to The Walking Dead in August 2021 on AMC.
