|'The Walking Dead' character Tara, left, meets Cyndie from Oceanside.|
Up to this season, the seventh, of the Walking Dead, it was believed that Glenn Rhee played by Steven Yeun was the only Asian/American to survive the zombie apocalypse in the popular television show. With the grisley death of Glenn in the premiere of Season 7, we thought that was the end of Asian America, the last model minority and the death of all those awful Asian/American stereotypes.
Of course, we don't know yet if the character Cyndie is Asian American, but it is reassuring to see another Asian face on the show that takes place on Georgia.
Park, 19, already has 10 years of professional acting on her resume. She is probably best known for her role in Nikolodean's Instant Mom. She just signed on for a horror feature, Wish Upon but it's not unusual for TWD cast members to find work when they are not working on the series.
Unfortunately, it doesn't look like we'll see a whole lot more of Cyndie and her secret Oceanside colony. Tara leaves the beach with a vow that she wouldn't reveal its location. But, in The Walking Dead, you never really don't know what to expect.
In the second episode this season, we are introduced to The Kingdom where we meet Jerry, who appears to be King Ezekiel's right-hand man. We instantly fell in with the pun-loving character with an infectious smile portrayed by Samoan/American Cooper Andrews.
It appears that The Kingdom will play a larger role as this present story arc develops, perhaps as allies with Alexandria, where the bulk of the core group resides.
