Get to know each of the characters with their bios and portraits in preparation for Fear the Walking Dead’s crossover Season Four which debuts on April 15 at 10 pm ET!


Maggie Grace plays Althea.

“Al is someone uniquely qualified to survive — to thrive, even – in this world because of her experiences before the apocalypse,” the bio reads. “When we meet her, we’ll find that she has found a way to pick up where she left off before the world collapsed. She has a number of impressive weapons in her arsenal, the greatest of which is her curiosity and an innate understanding of people. But we’ll learn that this curiosity is about more than just survival for Al; it’s part of a greater mission, one that will become more critical and complicated as her journey progresses.”

“Maggie Grace will next be seen in Rob Cohen’s The Hurricane Heist opposite Toby Kebbell,” the actress’ bio goes on. “She is currently in production on AMC’s hit series Fear the Walking Dead. Other recent roles include Supercon, with John Malkovich; The Scent of Rain & Lightning (which she also produced), opposite Maika Monroe; and We’ll Never Have Paris, with Melanie Lynskey and Zachary Quinto, which premiered at the SXSW Film Festival. Grace made her Broadway debut in Roundabout’s Picnic, with Mare Winningham, Ellen Burstyn and Elizabeth Marvel. She is perhaps most recognizable from Fox’s Taken franchise, the blockbuster action drama, opposite Liam Neeson. Last year, Grace established her character Irina in Summit Entertainment’s highly anticipated The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 1, which was followed by Breaking Dawn – Part 2. Grace also portrays Faith on the most recent season of the popular series Californication, opposite David Duchovny. Earlier last year she starred in Lockout, an action-thriller, opposite Guy Pearce.”

Garret Dillahunt plays John Dorie.

“John is a man who has been living on his own for some time,” the character bio reads. “But we’ll come to learn that his isolation is not of his own choosing. He’s lost someone, and he’s determined to find them no matter what it takes. As a gentle soul – an innocent in a dangerous world — John’s optimism will fuel his search. But with every turn of adversity he encounters along his path, John will come to understand the challenge of maintaining hope in a grim world.

“Born in California and raised in Washington, Dillahunt studied journalism at the University of Washington and went on to earn his M.F.A. in New York University’s renowned graduate acting program,” the actor’s bio reads. “Dillahunt is currently filming the new season of AMC’s Fear the Walking Dead as a series regular. He will soon be seen opposite Viola Davis in Steve McQueen’s new movie Widows. Last spring, he shot the lead in the TNT pilot Monsters of God and then TBS’ The Guest Bookalong with the second season of Amazon’s Hand of Godand the most recent season of Hulu’s hit The Mindy Project.”


The Walking Dead’s Lennie James joins Fear as Morgan Jones.

Jenna Elfman plays Naomi.

“Naomi is a capable survivor who we’ll find living on her own at the beginning of the season,” the character’s bio reads. “She’ll have her guard up when she crosses paths with Madison and her family, and we’ll come to learn that Naomi has a very good reason for keeping people at a distance. Whether Naomi will ultimately face and overcome what’s keeping her in isolation is a question that only she can answer.”

“Jenna Elfman began her career as a classically trained professional dancer, working on numerous film, television and video projects with such legendary choreographers as Twyla Tharp and Debbie Allen, who staged the 1991 Academy Awards live broadcast,” the actress’ bio reads. “She ultimately transitioned to acting and is best known around the world for her role as Dharma in the hit television series Dharma and Greg, for which she garnered a Golden Globe Award, three Emmy® Award nominations and two TV Guide Awards.”

Danay Garcia plays Luciana Galvez.

For Luciana, this is a season about rediscovering community. In Season 3, she fled Brokejaw Ranch feeling ostracized and isolated. Now, she is in a new place, in a very different kind of community. It’s a place where she will take her first steps down the path toward trusting people again. She’ll mend some old wounds in surprising ways.

Danay Garcia is an actress, writer and producer. She is currently a series regular in the AMC hit television show Fear the Walking Dead and recently costarred in two feature films. Garcia has been working steadily in film and television since arriving in the United States from Cuba in 2003.

Garcia played the lead role of Sofia Lugo during the final two seasons and achieved instant fame, appearing in hundreds of magazines around the world. Garcia has also appeared in episodes of Supernatural, CSI: Miami and CSI: New York.

Colman Domingo plays Victor Strand.

“This season, Strand will find himself at a crossroads between the man he’s been and the man he wants to be,” the character’s bio reads. “The decisions he made at the end of the third season will weigh heavily on him and force him to confront the demons of his past. But on the other side of that struggle lies the promise of the thing he wants most — redemption.”

“A 2017 Academy of Motion Pictures Arts and Sciences Class Member and a 2017 Sundance Screenwriters Lab Fellow, Colman Domingo is an Olivier, Tony, Drama Desk, Drama League and NAACP award-nominated, OBIE and Lucille Lortel award-winning actor, playwright and director.

Alycia Debnam-Carey plays Alicia Clark.

“At the end of Season 3, Alicia tried to go off on her own, thinking that being away from her family and friends was the best way to survive,” the character’s bio reads. “In Season 4, she’ll have discovered a new confidence and strength, which will affect her relationships with the people closest to her. She’ll have a newfound sense of purpose, which will test her in ways she never thought possible.”

“At the end of Season 3, Nick’s efforts to protect the people he cared for didn’t exactly work out the way he’d hoped,” the character’s bio reads. “His plan to save Madison, Alicia and Strand put them in terrible danger. In Season 4, Nick will have found a new way forward in a walker-infested world. He’ll have an approach that allows him to protect the people he cares about and still be the person he wants to be. But one question remains for Nick — how long can it last?”

Kim Dickens plays Madison Clark.

“When we last saw Madison in Season 3, she had just narrowly escaped death and was alone and unsure of the fate of her children and friends,” the character’s bio reads. “Vowing to never let that happen again, she’s gone through extraordinary lengths to make sure it doesn’t. These new circumstances she’s created for herself aren’t just about avoiding past mistakes — they’re about finding a way to make up for them.”
