Fear the Walking Dead and The Walking Dead before it have both faced some criticism over the years over diversity issues. Both shows, at the outset, had a tendency to kill off their black male characters quickly, but The Walking Dead managed to eventually evolve into one of the most diverse casts on television, while Fear the Walking Dead began with a diverse cast.
It may be even more diverse than many think because — despite very good American accents on the show — the large majority of the Fear the Walking Dead cast members are not American-born. Here’s the principal cast of Fear the Walking Dead and a taste of their native accents.
Debman-Carey was, until very recently, a fan-favorite on the CW’s 100. She’s also studied classical percussion for ten years. She’s from Australia, and when she moved to Los Angeles at the age of 18, she had several auditions within two weeks, including for the role of Carrie on the Sex .. and the City prequel.
