… Or Is It? You Decide!

Alexandra Breckenridge starred as Katerina Pellham in HBOs True Blood Season 4In Season 4 of HBO’s True Blood, we were introduced to the recurring character of Katerina Pellham (played by Alexandra Breckenridge), the undercover agent, wiccan, and former member of Marnie Stonebrook’s (Fiona Shaw) coven. It is Katerina’s job to ascertain if Marnie’s coven poses a threat to vampires or not. Her role, unfortunately, was short lived after she was killed by Luis Patiño (Peter Macdissi).

However,  actress Alexandra Breckenridge went on to bigger and better things after True Blood. And many fans of FX’s American Horror Story franchise will remember Alexandra from Season 1 when she played the younger version of Moira. She also appeared in Season 3 as the witch Kaylee.

Now, it seems, Alexandra has joined the cast of AMC‘s juggernaut, The Walking Dead. Her role has been bathed in mystery with the only information on her character being as such:

“Samantha” [is] an attractive, strong, smart, charming and articulate woman with a vulnerable side. She’s a mother with a bohemian spirit, and a talented artist.

It is not even sure yet if the character name of Samantha is correct or merely a placeholder name in order to keep spoilers at bay.

Recently though, the following image was released on Instagram, sending Walking Dead fans into a frenzy of conjecture over the character of Beth (played by Emily Kinney) in Season 5. While the image does bear a striking resemblance to Kinney, it semes this may actually be the first on set picture of Alexandra Breckenridge! Truebies and Walking fans alike can make up their own minds:

 

What do you think? Beth or Samantha? Honestly, that looks like Emily Kinney to me, but let us know your thoughts by commenting below!

True Blood’s Alexandra Breckenridge Joins The Walking Dead

October 24, 2014

Recurring Role May Extend Into Season 6 of AMC’s Zombie Juggernaut:

Alexandra Breckenridge starred as Katerina Pellham in HBOs True Blood Season 4Truebies will remember Alexandra Breckenridge as the undercover WiccanKaterina “Katie” Pellham, in Season 4 of HBO’s True Blood. It seems Alexandra has gone from Wiccan to zombie enthusiast with her newest role on AMC’s The Walking Dead! While there is little information on the character she will play, AMC have confirmed that she will appear in Season 5 with the option of her role extending into Season 6. Her character has been given the name “Samantha” but even AMC are admitting that may just been a placeholder detail for the time being – along with her character descriptive as listed below:

“Samantha” [is] an attractive, strong, smart, charming and articulate woman with a vulnerable side. She’s a mother with a bohemian spirit, and a talented artist.

Walking Dead fans will remember that placeholder details for new characters are relatively commonplace on this show. For example, Season 5 newcomer Father Gabriel Stokes (played by Seth Gilliam in the TV series) was originally introduced to fans as Michael Todd. This occurs when a comic book story line crosses over into the TV series and may cause an unintentional spoiler to comic book fans who also watch the show.

WetPaint have speculated that if AMC have announced Alexandra’s character name as a placeholder, than she must be based on a comic book character, so suggest she may be playing the role of either Jessie Anderson or Dr. Denise Cloyd.

Do you watch AMC’s The Walking Dead or read the comics? If so, which character do you think Alexandra Breckenridge will be playing in the TV series? Let us know your thoughts by commenting below!
