Award-winning actor Colman Domingo is well known in The Walking Dead universe for his portal of Victor Strand on Fear the Walking Dead. The first spinoff of the main series, Fear TWD, will premiere its eighth and final season on AMC on May 14, 2023. Domingo began his time in TWDU as an actor but has also served as a director and producer.
In season 1, episode 5, “Colbalt,” Victor Strand was introduced when he is seen in a cage with Nick Clark (Frank Dillane). Strand bargains to keep Nick in the cell with him, noting that he is a heroin addict, which makes Nick a survivor, a skill Strand needs. At one point, he tells Nick the only way to survive the mad world is to embrace the madness.
Always a man of mystery, Strand himself is a survivor. He had acquired great wealth before the outbreak, which is evident by the cut of his suit, his jewelry, his gated estate, and his luxury yacht, the Abigail. He calmly conducts himself and is always looking out for number one.
As the story comes to a close, Strand has survived to season 8, and only time will tell what his future holds.
