Daniella Pineda has a new tale(s)…
The 34-year-old Mexican American actress will star in AMC‘s anthology series Tales of the Walking Dead.
Details on the characters each will play in the series are being kept under wraps.
The six-episode episodic anthology series will feature both new and established characters from The Walking Dead universe.
Tales of the Walking Dead is scheduled to debut this summer on AMC and AMC Plus.
The show was first announced as being in development in September 2020 and ordered to series in October 2021. In an interview with Variety in 2020, then-AMC COO Ed Carroll said that “Tales” would serve as a “test kitchen” of sorts, meaning that if a particular episode is well received, it could lead to another spinoff.
Pineda most recently starred in the Netflix live-action remake of Cowboy Bebop in the role of Faye Valentine.
Her other television roles include What/If, The Detour, and The Originals.
In film, she appeared in the film Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom in 2018 and will reprise her role as Zia Rodriguez in the upcoming sequel Jurassic World Dominion. That film will debut in theaters on June 10.
She has also wrapped production on the feature The Plane starring Gerard Butler and Mike Colter for Lionsgate and Di Bonaventura Pictures.
