Alexa Mansour, known in The Walking Dead universe for her role in the spinoff series The Walking Dead: World Beyond, has been cast in a new role. Mansour portrayed Hope Bennet for both seasons of the limited series and, in the end, was seen experimenting with a theory she came up with that accelerated the decay of the undead. Deadline reports that she has now been cast in the ABC drama Avalon.
Mansour has been cast as a lead opposite Neve Campbell (Scream) in the series created by David E. Kelly (The Practice) based on a short story by Michael Connelly (Bosch: Legacy). Campbell plays L.A. Sheriff’s Department Detective Nicole “Nic” Searcy, who runs a small office in Avalon on Catalina Island. Mansour plays Deputy Carolyn Chavez, an optimistic woman who loves her job, boss, and living on the island.
The local ferry brings in over 1 million tourists a year, and many new stories come with them. A career-defining mystery will challenge Detective Searcy.
Mansour joins fellow lead cast members, Steven Pasquale (Aliens vs. Predator: Requiem) and Roslyn Ruff (Rachel Getting Married).
