Sarah Wayne Callies has been cast as the lead in AMC’s new series, THE WALKING DEAD, based on the popular comic book by Robert Kirkman.

According to Michael Ausiello, Sarah Wayne Callies will play Lori Grimes, the constantly on edge wife of the main character Rick (played by Andrew Lincoln).

I personally haven’t read the comic book series yet, although I do have the first nine volumes sitting around (which I should start reading soon), but even then I am looking forward to this show. With AMC’s track record it’s going to be interesting to see how they are able to bring the story to life.

So what do you think of the casting? Does it fit with your idea of Lori Grimes?
