Danay Garcia has officially joined the cast of AMC's Fear the Walking Dead.
The actress is best known for her work in Prison Break and, more recently, Liz in September. Garcia will make her debut on the series in the second half of Fear's second season which is set to debut on August 21.
Garcia was revealed as part of the cast in the trailer for the second half of Fear the Walking Dead's second season. Her character is part of a gang in Tijuana and discovers Nick as he is roams the world alone with the undead. Her character's name is Luciana.
Dave Erickson describes Garcia's Luciana character. While Nick is on a "spiritual journey." What he finds on his trip to Tijuana is a neighborhood outside of the city who have a similar belief system to Celia's. They see the dead as "the next step" and Luciana is a "bad ass soldier in this group." Nick and Luciana will form a bond.
Garcia chimes in. She says "it was amazing" to join the cast. She got the job on a Wednesday and was on set in Mexico on Friday. She says Luciana will be "testing" Nick. Her community has rules. She explains that the Mexican culture has a unique take on death which is why they handle it differently than we've seen elsewhere. Nick "has to pass" with the group's rules to fit in.
Fear the Walking Dead will return for its seventh season in August. For quick updates and photos from all The Walking Dead's panels, set, and show floor booths (and all season long), follow me on Twitter @BrandonDavisBD and check out The Walking Dead on ComicBook.com's Facebook page!
