AIXA KENDRICK is a fellow The Talent Express client (hello, my lovely reps!) and ironically, I just saw the listing last night on the site of a well-known breakdown website. The breakdown lists someone a lot like Anne “Jadis” Stokes (Pollyana McIntosh).
The character breakdown describes a scavenger lady that is unique-looking, tough, and knows her surroundings.
The Walking Dead is no stranger to diversity and continues to pop out spin-offs such as World Beyond, Tales of The Walking Dead & Fear: The Walking Dead to mention a few popular ones. Aixa is represented by The Talent Express Management and is a New York local hire, you can find her website right here.
Seeing someone with additional theatre and shorts roles is always a breath of fresh air in the industry.
Hopefully, AMC starts a pattern of casting new talent, than the usual Hollywood celebrities, and digs deeper into the many pools of talent this industry has to offer.
