“Teen Wolf” and “The Originals” actor Daniel Sharman has joined the cast of “Fear the Walking Dead” as a series regular. As reported by TheWrap, Sharman is set to portray a character named Troy that is described as “having a wild temperament and suspicious of outsiders, who is charismatic with a cruel streak.”
The actor joins “Buffy the Vampire Slayer” alum Emma Caulfield who is set to guest star in the upcoming third season, which is currently filming in Mexico.
Sharman got his start on the television series “Judge John Deed” as Andy Dobbs, but it wasn’t until he debuted on MTV’s “Teen Wolf” in 2012 that the actor truly broke out. He played the role of Isaac Lahey, one of the Werewolves, on “Teen Wolf” through season three before leaving the series to join the CW’s “The Originals” where he starred on the series for a total of twelve episodes. This will mark Sharman’s first series role since his departure on “Teen Wolf.”
“Fear the Walking Dead” is a spin-off of “The Walking Dead,” AMC’s adaptation of Robert Kirkman’s zombie survivalist comic book series by the same name. The series stars Kim Dickens, Cliff Curtis, Frank Dillane and Alycia Debnam-Carey. The start date for the show’s third season has yet to be announced, but is expected to begin airing this year.
