The Walking Dead: Daryl Dixon spinoff series is currently filming in France, with the series set for release during the second half of 2023. IMDB has Oct. 1, 2023, listed as the series premiere date, but AMC has yet to make an official announcement. Several new cast members have recently been announced to join the previously announced Clémence Poésy and Adam Nagaitis. Who does Nagaitis play, and what else has he starred in?
British actor Adam Nagaitis began his acting career in 2000 after attending Stella Adler Conservatory in New York and RADA in the UK. This would lead to his role in Yann Demange’s first feature film, ’71, where he portrayed Jimmy.
He is well known for his role as Cornelius Hickey in the AMC series Terror. Nagaitis also portrayed Vasily Ignatenko in Craig Mazin’s (The Last of Us) series Chernobyl. He also starred in The Commuter, The man with the Iron Heart, Walk Invisible: The Brontë Sisters, Banished, and more. Nagaitis stars in a new Netflix series Red Rose that is currently streaming.
In addition to the Daryl Dixon series, he has two other upcoming projects. He will portray Jesus in the Terrence Malick film The Way of the Wind, which is a retelling of stories from the life of Jesus. He will also star with Ian McShane in a thriller, American Star.

Deadline reported in November 2022 that Clémence Poésy and Adam Nagaitis would join Reedus in the Daryl Dixon series. Nagaitis will play a black marketeer named Quinn. He is described as a displaced Brit who has become a powerful man in Paris. He owns an underground nightclub, Demimonde.
The overall synopsis for the series reads that Daryl will arrive in France with no recollection of how or why he is there, and his main goal is to find a way home. During his travels, he will encounter people who make it difficult for him to achieve his goal.
