This Is Us Casts The Walking Dead's Alexandra Breckenridge as Pearson Pal

This Is Us‘ Kate has been having a rough time lately. That’s why it’s a good thing (we think) that she’ll have an old friend around soon.

The Walking Dead‘s Alexandra Breckenridge is joining the NBC comedy as Sophie, one of Kate’s childhood pals, TVLine has learned exclusively.

Breckenridge will recur on the family drama, which airs its fall finale Tuesday at 9/8c. No word on whether Sophie’s re-entry into Kate’s life will affect her recent decision to undergo weight-loss surgery.

In addition to her role as The Walking Dead‘s doomed Jessie, Breckenridge is known for playing young Moira in the first season of American Horror Story. Her TV credits also include True BloodLife Unexpected and Dirt.

    I’m still a huge fan of hers from Dirt. Such an underrated show.

    Was Sophie one of the little girls who wrote that note telling Kate to go away in “The Pool” episode? ‘Cause if so… great.

    Good. Now please get rid of Olivia.

    Good news Alexandria will be on the show next year when the show is back from holiday break! Can’t wait to see her on the show.

    I’ve been wondering where their friends are. I love that the focus is on the Pearson family, but we haven’t met a single friend of theirs – only outsiders are love interests.

    I’d say the show is more of a dramedy than a comedy- makes me wonder if the writer ever watched the show….

    I sort of bristle at the description of this as a comedy. Drama with funny elements, in my opinion. At least Dramedy would have been a better description.
