Where Are They Now?
Earlier this week, I ran a story taking a look at former cast members from Season 1 and following their careers after The Walking Dead. The first actor we’re going to look at had an impressive resume even before The Walking Dead, so keep reading to find out who it could be…
Scott Wilson is a legendary actor who made his screen debut in 1967’s In the Heat of the Night. He spent three years on The Walking Dead as Hershel Greene before his character was beheaded by the Governor. Wilson has stayed busy with several new television roles in the time since. Wilson is now starring in the Netflix original series The OA, which just debuted on December 16.
Hershel’s onscreen daughter, Beth, lasted a bit longer than her father, but sadly bit the dust in Season 5. Since then, actress Emily Kinney has had a string of television appearances, including a guest-spot on both Arrow and The Flash and a racy four-episode arc on the Showtime series Masters of Sex.
Chad L. Coleman
In The Walking Dead comic book, it was Tyreese who was beheaded by the Governor, not Hershel. Nonetheless, Tyreese did meet his unfortunate end in Season 5 on the show. Since then, actor Chad L. Coleman had a short-lived stint earlier this year on Arrow as gangster Tobias Church.
And The Rest
Since Chad L. Coleman left the show, there have only been two other main cast members that have left: Steven Yeun and Michael Cudlitz. The deaths of Glenn and Abraham were so recently, though, there’s not much else to reveal about their post-Walking Dead careers. We’ll file those two away for an article in another year or two.
