‘Fear The Walking Dead’ Adds ‘House Of Cards’ Alum Sandrine Holt In Recurring Role
Deadline is reporting that Sandrine Holt will take on the recurring role of Dr. Bethany Exner in Fear the Walking Dead. There’s not yet any indication about how the character will fit in with the previously announced character lineup, but there’s certainly plenty of story opportunities for a medical professional to contribute to a story about a zombie infection breaking out for the first time among the general population
The vague description of Holt’s part on Fear the Walking Dead makes it hard to really say how integral to the show she’ll be – or even how long she’ll be sticking around. After all, this is a near-future where flesh-eating creatures roam the Earth, and the parent series isn’t exactly shy about killing characters off.
Besides, although a doctor among the new cast of characters could prove useful, it would be all too easy to ratchet up the drama and tension than introducing and subsequently eliminating the one person with the necessary medical skills to tend to the sick and wounded. Point being, whereas we expect the characters played by Curtis and Dickens to hang around for a while on Fear the Walking Dead, Holt’s fate seems more up in the air.

After last week’s fleet-footed sneak peek at Fear the Walking Dead, AMC has released another teaser trailer, this one spotlighting series star Kim Dickens. The actress plays single mom and high school guidance counselor, Madison, who in this snippet tries and fails to convince one of her students that there’s no such thing as the zombie apocalypse. That’s maybe not the best advertisement for her “guidance counseling” skills…
A new 10-second trailer for the upcoming AMC spinoff series “Fear The Walking Dead” has been released and it shows three short scenes: one of missing persons posters plastered on a wall, the second of two characters driving, and a third shot that shows a lone zombie walking through a park. It ends with a title card and confirms that the premiere will be this August.
“Flu Shot” is the third sneak peek we have seen from the pilot.
The clip is 10 seconds long, and it features Madison (Kim Dickens) walking down her school’s hallway when a coworker spots her and says he thought she would be another victim since a lot of employees have been getting sick. Madison replies with, “No, I got my flu shot.
Fear the Walking Dead, the much-anticipated spin-off from AMC’s hit zombie drama The Walking Dead, will be available to Sky households – but only if they pay BT to watch it.
Earlier this month BT announced it had bagged exclusive rights to a new channel showcasing AMC’s output, including Fear the Walking Dead, which it said would be “available exclusively to BT customers”.
As previously speculated by SEENIT, it’s now been confirmed that this will include Sky customers who pay BT to watch its ‘BT Sports Pack’
Unlike most channel owners who wholesale their channels to Sky which then either includes them in its channel packages or retails them to its users as a premium add-on, BT takes advantage of a rule which allows it to sell channels direct to Sky households for watching on their existing set top box.
By doing so it gains more money then Sky is likely to per customer under any wholesale agreement and, more importantly, a direct relationship with subscribers who it can then market other services to.
The AMC channel will join BT Sport 1 & 2, ESPN and a new BT Sport Europe channel which will serve as the exclusive home of the Champions and Europa Leagues.
Previously free, the expanded channel pack now costs £5pm for customers with BT Broadband and £19.99pm for those without. HD and multi-room options cost extra.
BT will be hoping the addition of top US dramas to its channel line-up will persuade customers to absorb the price increase.
A BT Spokesperson has previously told SEENIT that the AMC channel will only be available to its customers, suggesting a deal to bring it to Virgin Media is unlikely.
Jasus just by the look of the trailer it already seems better than the actual walking dead

Sky viewers WILL get Fear the Walking Dead, but only if they pay BT
A while back, we learned that the zombies on AMC's Fear the Walking Dead will look very different from those seen on the flagship series. Where The Walking Dead's "walkers" are heavily decayed, Fear rewinds the timeline to the very beginning of the zombie outbreak. So logic dictates that Fear's undead, being "younger" or fresher zombies, shouldn't be so decomposed.
That's the approach being taken by special makeup effects guru Greg Nicotero, who's overseen the rotted flesh of The Walking Dead's zombies since the very first episode. For Fear the Walking Dead, Nicotero and his team have come up with a completely different look for the new show's walkers.By the way, zombies on Fear the Walking Dead won't be known as "walkers." That's a term used almost exclusively by the group lead by Rick Grimes. Others have used different names, such as the residents of Woodbury referring to them as "biters."
