And the WALKING DEAD/FEAR THE WALKING DEAD Crossover Character Is…

Since the original comic and series creator Robert Kirkman revealed that a character from either The Walking Dead or Fear the Walking Dead would cross over on the other show, we’ve been waiting with baited breath to find out who it would be and why. And like when Worf joined Star Trek: Deep Space Nine back in the day, it’s a character from the original Walking Dead show, looking to bring new fans to the prequel story.

It was heavily expected that the character would be Abraham Ford, but in fact, no. It’s Morgan, played by Lennie James. Which makes some sense, given that there are huge gaps in his story.

“I am surprised!” said James, who made the announcement from Austin, Texas. He’ll begin shooting tomorrow morning, so this announcement helps AMC get ahead of anyone spotting him on set.

Scott Gimple took pains to point out that this does not necessarily mean Morgan is getting killed off on The Walking Dead — he has plenty of story still left. And now we’ll also get to find out who he was before he even met Rick in the aftermath of the apocalypse, before he was able to speak softly and carry a big stick.

You’ll be able to watch a livestream of James’ first day on set on the Fear the Walking Dead Facebook page tomorrow at 4 p.m. Are you excited to see his earlier days? Let us know in comments below!
