No details are currently available about David’s Fear TWD character, who is named Grace. Season 5 of the Walking Dead spinoff is set to debut on AMC later this year.
David’s previous TV credits include Ryan Hansen Solves Crimes on Television, Once Upon a Time and Galavant.

So for anybody wondering… The amazing Brian Cox plays Death in #GoodOmens. This is what Death looks like, when he's not on a motorbike anyway. (Watch the trailer tomorrow.) pic.twitter.com/ARmFMM97uc

Which of today’s TVLine Items pique your interest?
Doesn’t Legacies and FTWD film in Georgia? Maybe David will do both since one is recurring and some episodes of FTWD usually only feature part of the cast.
Yep, they do. They also run at different dates. FTWD is a summer show whereas Legacies is fall-to-spring. She wouldn’t have a lot of time off through the year, but it’s possible to do both. Like Daniel Gillies managed The Originals and Saving Grace for a few seasons.
I remembered from the end credits that the last season of FTWD may have actually been shot in Texas. I looked it up and it never did shoot in Georgia. It started in Canada and moved to California and included Mexico. The original Walking Dead has been Georgia.
Hopefully, she can do both as her part on Legacies is small but the recent flirtation with Aleric should be explored.
Not cool having an autoplay video in every tvline page.
I have no insider information but based on description alone, I’ll bet Joe kills the Chris D’elia character by episode 4.
Is she still going to be on FEAR? Haven’t heard her mentioned in the Promo of S5 at all?
