Fear the Walking Dead: Alicia’s Journey

Fear the Walking Dead

Alicia Clark gets bitten by a zombie, and we see her struggling on Sunday’s episode. With a zombie bite comes the question whether the character has got one foot in the grave already or not. However, Clark manages to fight off the fever and survive, and did not become a zombie. With that comes the decision that she should head off to help other victims.

This comes as a surprise especially after Kim Dickens, who plays her mother on the show returned for the second half of season 7 after leaving the show on season 4. But a major portion of the cast has left since 2016 and new members have joined.

Debnam-Carey spoke about her experience in working on Fear the Walking Dead. She said that she was 21 when she joined the series in 2015. And now, 7 years and 100 episodes later, she has decided to move on to other projects. She spoke about her luck in starring in the show, and hopes that the audience understands and respects her choice. Her leaving statement was “bittersweet, but it is time.” The actress even tried her hand at directing one of the episodes.
