First Cast Members Revealed for AMC’s The Walking Dead Spinoff sure how you’re going to fill the time between now and “The Walking Dead’s” return in February?  Then why not join us in speculating about the spinoff series in the works at AMC, which is currently codenamed “Cobalt”? The first casting news has arrived, and it’s pretty juicy!

Per Cinema Blend, Frank Dillane (bottom left; Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince) and Alycia Debnam Carey (bottom right; Into the Storm, The Devil’s Hand) have been cast as siblings in the pilot for “Cobalt,” which was written by “TWD” creator Robert Kirkman and Dave Erickson. Adam Davidson will direct.

Carey will portray Ashley Tompkins, the level-headed daughter of Nancy Tompkins, a beautiful-but-edgy guidance counselor. Ashley is the ambitious younger child who is looking to escape her mother’s immediate presence, though she still loves her dearly. Dillane will play Ashley’s polar opposite older brother, Nick. He’s too old to still be living with his mother, but he’s battled a drug problem (among other wrongdoings) and doesn’t have the skills required to live on his own, though he also wants to leave.

Still to be cast are the following characters:

SEAN CABRERA: A Latino male in his early 40s, Sean is a good man trying to do right by everyone in his life.

CODY CABRERA: Sean’s whip-smart and rebellious teenage son. Known as the angriest kid in town.

NANCY TOMPKINS: A thirtysomething single mom to two kids, Nancy looks like the girl next door, but there’s an edge to her.

ANDREA CHAPMAN: A somewhat wilted flower child, fortysomething Andrea has retreated to the outskirts of the city to recover after a horrible marriage.
