For fans of the ABC Family series ‘Greek,’ which ended in 2011, here is some great news. Andrew J. West, known for portraying Ashleigh’s (Amber Stevens) former flame Fisher in the college series, is joining AMC’s hit zombie show ‘The Walking Dead,’ The Hollywood Reporter exclusively reports.
Details regarding West’s character remain unknown, but we can reveal that the character is not one found in the Image/Skybound comic series on which the show is based. Despite not popping up in the comics, West will play Gareth, who is described as “a remix of sorts of an unidentified character from the series.”
Sources are also revealing that Gareth will have a “big presence and play an important character” throughout the series now being run by Scott M. Gimple. West will appear in the second half of ‘The Walking Dead’s current fourth season. The ‘Greek’ actor will be listed as a guest-star, but with the option to become a series regular when ‘The Walking Dead’ returns for its fifth season.
The show is also remaining mum on when West’s character will make his debut.

‘The Walking Dead’ airs Sundays at 9/8c on AMC.
