Scoop: Dallas Casts Walking Dead Alum as New Series Regular — Is She Related to [Spoiler]?
Fallen Walking Dead alum Emma Bell is being resurrected on Dallas.
Bell has nabbed one of two new series regular roles on Season 2 of the TNT drama, TVLine has learned.
The actress will play Emma, a classic beauty who has enjoyed a privileged upbringing full of travel since she was a toddler. She was raised by her grandmother to be poised, graceful, and slightly aloof, while her father has ingrained in her a distrust of the larger world. If those clues ring any bells it might be because Emma is rumored to be the estranged daughter of Brenda Strong’s character, Ann Ewing.
Bell — whose other credits include guest spots on CSI: Miami, Supernatural and Dollhouse — will first appear in the Season 2 premiere, slated to air in 2013.
Dallas fans, can you see a family resemblance between Bell and Strong? And does daddy sound like Mitch Pileggi’s dastardly Harris Ryland?Follow @VladaGelman
