Chinese-American actress, activist, and poet Poppy Liu starred in The Walking Dead spinoff Tales of the Walking Dead anthology. She played in the fourth episode of the series titled “Amy/Dr. Everett” with Anthony Edwards. She is well known for many notable roles during her career and is currently starring in the series Dead Ringers.
The psychological thriller drama television miniseries was released all six episodes on Amazon Prime on April 21, 2023. Created by April Birch, the series is based on the 1988 film by David Cronenberg, sourced from Bari Wood and Jack Geasland’s 1977 novel Twins.
The story follows identical twins Beverly Mantle and Elliot Mantle, who set out to change how women give birth. As twins, they share everything, drugs, lovers, and an unapologetic desire to challenge antiquated practices to bring women’s healthcare to the forefront, even if it pushes medical ethics boundaries.
Liu plays Greta, who she explains “is a chameleon and also a little freak” in an Instagram post. Rachel Weisz plays dual roles as the Mantle twins, and they are joined by Britne Oldford, Jennifer Ehle, Michael Chernus, Jeremy Shamos, and Emily Meade.
