WATCH: Julia Ormond headlines new Walking Dead series The World Beyond in new trailer

November 25th, 2019 by Marc Comments

It looks like AMC’s third Walking Dead series has found its lead star in the form of Smilia’s Sense For Snow and Mad Men star Julia Ormond.

The series, now named Walking Dead: World Beyond, is due next Spring and sees Ormond star as Elizabeth, a “charismatic leader of a large, sophisticated and formidable force.”

New series’ co-creator Scott M. Gimple said: “I’m grateful for the talent, grace, intelligence, and humor she has brought to our set, our show and to this role. We – and the audience – are very lucky to have Julia helping bring this new world of The Walking Dead to life.” 

Ormond in no small score for the series as she is an actress of much acclaim, and I actually quite like the look of this, so who knows… is there life in this old zombie yet?

Check out the trailer:

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
