I like that kid as much as her mother.
AMC's The Walking Dead has a reputation of deviating from the source material, but when the show returns for its tenth season this fall, they will introduce yet another character from the now-complete comic book series.
While chatting with Entertainment Weekly, showrunner Angela Kang revealed that Dante will be the latest character to make the transition from page to screen and shared a few details on his role in the show.
“He is this roguish, fast-talking, sometimes charming, sometimes annoying guy who can sometimes put his foot in his mouth, but is an interesting presence in the comics,” Kang explained.
As fans of the books likely know, Dante also served as a love interest for Maggie Green, but with star Lauren Cohan currently off the show, it’s unlikely that we’ll see this particularly storyline play out on the small screen.
However, the showrunner did make it clear that despite some changes, Dante will indeed “play an important role in the story in Alexandria.” Of course, we’ll have to wait until this fall to see what this story is.
