THE WALKING  DEAD: First Look At Seth Gilliam As 'Father Gabriel'

After those awesome The Walking Dead season 5 covers from earlier on, EW have now posted our first official look at The Wire actor Seth Gilliam as fan-favorite character, Father Gabriel Stokes. Check out the new still after the jump.


EW have posted an interview with Gilliam too. Here's what he had to say about the research he did when he found out which character he'd be playing (he actually auditioned for a school guidance Councillor named Michael).

"I only read the comic book where Father Gabriel was introduced, which I think was episode 61 in the comics. I didn’t read anything before that, and I haven’t read anything after that. I discovered from reading about the show that often times characters’ names and journeys are kind of crisscrossed and mismatched, so I thought if I did read too much I might be giving myself a lot of information that would be useless, or just outright wrong. So I figured, like with everything, I’d just take the script and try to fill him out the best I possibly can."

Much more at the link below. The Walking Dead returns to AMC on October 12th.
