EW Reveals New Season 6 Characters

Entertainment Weekly has an exciting exclusive that takes a closer look at the new Season 6 cast members. Fans of the comic will already recognize Dr. Denise Cloyd (played by Emmy Award Winner Merritt Wever) who plays a pivotal role as Alexandria’s only doctor.

The new images also reveal Carter (played by Ethan Embry), who will actually play a diverse role. Show-runner Scott M. Gimple explained, “Ethan plays a combo of a few characters that we actually haven’t hit yet or weren’t able to hit in other characters.” He goes on to say, “He is an Alexandrian, and has been there the whole time, just quite busy.” Based on the trailer it seems Carter might be one of Rick’s enemies in the town.

Enough already, get to the images! We know, here you go:

    Oh excellent 🙂

    I’ve been wondering who’d be playing Denise – nice choice.

    DENISE! Let’s hope she can ARM herself when All Out War happens… heh. No? Anybody? Aw, c’mon, now. 🙁

    Hm. Probably the first casting that doesn’t really match up visually as I expected.

    I just wish they would have already had her established *in* the community to begin with. It seems too convenient that right after Rick kills the only doctor that boom! They have another one.

    It’s small things like this that build up and why the show’s quality suffers.

      They can kinda get away with it, Pete was a surgeon [though that’s really just a specialized doctor]. I foresee Denise as just a plain old family physician with possibly some ER under her belt. I do agree though, they should’ve at least said something about other doctors but I don’t think it’ll make the quality of the show suffer

      Interesting. I’m trying to recall if it was stated last season that Pete was the only doctor. If so, there’s bound to be a workaround.

        I believe that’s why Deanna tolerated Pete’s behavior. He was doctor. They had no real alternative. So she didn’t want Rick messing with him because even though he’s a dick he’s a necessary evil.

          I can understand that, but I doubt she’d honestly have let Rick kill the only doctor. Even if he’d killed her husband in a fit of rage and alcohol.
          And Aaron did say to Noah, ‘We’ve got a doctor. Pete. The man works miracles’ or something to that effect, BASTET. I don’t believe they said he was the only doctor, maybe the only surgeon but I could be completely wrong. I’ve only seen each episode of season 5 once [with the exception of the first half]

          • BASTET. July 30, 2015 at 7:09 am

            Maybe she has been incognito about it, but comes out once she realizes Pete’s toast.

          • Neutral-Grey July 30, 2015 at 9:12 pm

            I think you’re underestimating the sheer love of a couple. She may have tolerated his behavior but you think she’d still restrain herself after the dude killed her husband? There’s a difference between “he’s the only doctor so let’s tolerate his abuse of his single wife” compared to “he’s the only doctor but he slit my husband’s throat with a sword in front of me and all the other community in a fit of psychotic rage.”

            And if that’s the case. Why only mention the one doctor? Unless Denise has just been hiding her skills. And even then that comes off as even more “convenient” than finding another doctor.

      What if they rectify that problem by making Denise only a person with some medical training and not a full-blown doctor? That could work, right?

    • CORAL July 30, 2015 at 3:14 am - Reply

      I totally agree. I thought the same thing when I saw her. It’s not really that big of a deal, but they gotta keep an eye out for these mistakes.

    Thats true, i forgot denise is the one who saves carl from an injury that would be hard to walk away from even by todays standards, i remember deanna saying something about doctors being limited but i cant remember if she said pete was all they had or not, hopefully they didnt say that because *poof more doctors* wont go over well with some folks im sure hahaha
