'Walking Dead' Enlists Alexandra Breckenridge for Season 5 American Horror Story alum Alexandra Breckenridge has joined the zombie drama, The Hollywood Reporter has learned. Sources tell THR that the actress, whose credits include Save Me and voice roles on Family Guy, will recur in season five with an option to be promoted to a series regular in season six. While specific details about Breckenridge's character are being kept under wraps, the casting breakdown described the role of "Samantha" as an attractive, strong, smart, charming and articulate woman with a vulnerable side. She's a mother with a bohemian spirit, and a talented artist. AMC declined comment other than to say the casting breakdown — and character name — may both likely be a placeholder. Well, all I can say is, this is awesome news. I've been a fan of Ms. Breckenridge for a while and I'm glad to see her join the cast of this show. I had been hoping to see her show up on American Horror Story again--that five minute tease of her we got in season 3 was rather infuriating--but I guess that might take away from Jessica Lange's scenery chewing. Anyway, I'm glad she ended up here, on what is (IMO) a much better show anyway. And here are some Ali pics, because DAYYYYYUUUMMMMM.
