Entertainment Weekly has revealed the four collectible covers for their next upcoming issue and they feature The Walking Dead’s Andrew Lincoln, Norman Reedus, Danai Gurira, Steven Yeun and Lauren Cohan.
In addition we’ve got our first official look at the character Seth Gilliam (The Wire) will play. Gilliam was announced back in May though his role was unknown.
EW has now revealed that Gilliam will in fact be playing Father Gabriel as many thought:
“I only read the comic book where Father Gabriel was introduced. Which I think was episode 61 in the comics. I didn’t read anything before that, and I haven’t read anything after that. I discovered from reading about the show that often times characters’ names and journeys are kind of crisscrossed and mismatched, so I thought if I did read too much I might be giving myself a lot of information that would be useless, or just outright wrong. So I figured, like with everything, I’d just take the script and try to fill him out the best I possibly can.”
Based on the comic created by Robert Kirkman, Tony Moore, and Charlie Adlard, The Walking Dead season 5 premieres Sunday, October 12th at 9:00pm ET/PT.
