One of the most popular series on all of television these days, The Walking Dead, is a show unlike any we’ve ever seen before. Sure, it is far from the first series to delve into the violent nature of man, as shows like Oz and The Wire existed years earlier. Nor is it the first to tackle the horror genre as evidenced years ago by Tales from the Crypt. Still, featuring a seemingly never-ending assortment of zombies slowly making their way towards our protagonists in an effort to devour them, while still managing to make the humans the true source of evil, now that is unique.
In the midst of the zombie apocalypse, it would make absolutely zero sense to see the stars of the show gazing into mirrors of fussing and fawning over their hair or makeup. Despite the obviously dark nature of the show, and the preoccupation with survival, making the stars focus on their looks is a silly idea to consider. However, there has been a long list of beautiful women on the show. While it may have been a bit difficult to appreciate their incredible looks while watching them on the show, especially considering they were covered in guts and grime at various points, these ladies clean up real good. After all, this is still Hollywood. That is what inspired us to put together a list of the hottest photos featuring the women of The Walking Dead.
When it comes to the photos we’ve chosen, the only prerequisite was that one of the female stars of The Walking Dead can be seen and looks great. We did limit ourselves to the stars of the show, so photos of guest stars, no matter how many appearances they’ve made, were never going to find their way here. Please also keep in mind, this list will have SPOILERS in it. So, without any further ado, let’s get to the list.
15. Emily Kinney
A soft-spoken character who spent the majority of her time on the show either in the background or at the side of her more outspoken father and sister, Beth was, unfortunately, easy to forget. Someone who is revealed to have attempted suicide after the passing of her mother, she ultimately realizes that she wanted to continue on and sticks around. A devout Christian who clearly lived a very sheltered life, the harshness of the new world around her was kept at bay for a long time because of the efforts of her father and the rest of the group. Looking anything but held back and sheltered here, it looks like she is in the midst of a photoshoot when a secondary camera took this image. Appearing to know full well just how beautiful she is, Emily, the actress who brought Beth to life, looks supremely confident in her own skin, which is immensely attractive.
14. Sonequa Martin-Green
Introduced to the series in the latter part of the third season, unless you are a reader of the comic book series The Walking Dead is based on, you probably didn’t realize how important she’d become. A character who struggles to open up to people, especially after the death of her brother, Tyrese (who was arguably underutilized in the series), it seems like becoming romantically interested in her is a death sentence. After losing everyone that she was really close with, including her aforementioned brother and her paramours to be, Bob and Abraham, it would be understandable for her to close up. While we totally get it, we hope that isn’t the case based on a photo like this. Wearing a simple dress that hints at her chest underneath, and teases us with her midriff, it is the radiance that her incredible smile puts into the world that is awe-inspiring here. A facial expression that seems to be called upon rarely on the show she stars in, it is a breath of fresh air to see.
13. Sarah Wayne Callies
A character that was initially at the center of a love triangle also featuring Shane and Rick, Lori Grimes was the wife of one and the lover of the other. Typically used to further the tension between the two men she was involved with, it is a shame that she rarely had storylines of her own that did much to further her character outside of her romances. Also a mother of two, Carl and Judith, she may have been gone for a while now but her influence on the show can definitely still be felt. Brought to life by Sarah Wayne Callies, an actress that was previously best known for her work on Prison Break, she spent a lot of her time on our televisions embroiled in soap opera level drama. Unfortunately, due to all of the crying and arguing, it was difficult to discern just how beautiful she is at the time but fortunately this photo makes that obvious.
12. Laurie Holden
Another one of the women who were present right from the start of the show, Andrea, like Lori before her, left the series during the first three seasons. Initially introduced alongside her sister Amy and Dale, an older gentleman she quickly bonds with, her character changed dramatically after she shot her sister who’d been bitten by a walker. Becoming a much darker character that broke away from her ties to the kindly older man and the most of the group, she seemed to become attracted to one tortured soul after the other, including Shane and The Governor. Ultimately departing the series after she took her own life rather than succumbing to a zombie bite, her character wasn’t exactly popular among fans by the end. However, among the fandom of the show that is attracted to women, we’re guessing this photo of the actress that brought Andrea to life, Laurie Holden, in bed, would be.
11. Melissa McBride
The only woman on this list who appeared in the first season of the show and has remained a part of the main cast ever since, Melissa has come to fully embody the character of Carol in our minds. Someone who started out as a flower that would wilt under the slightest pressure but has evolved into a warrior woman, who does whatever she needs to, Carol’s character arc has been fascinating. Currently attempting to do her own thing after struggling with her choice to take a particularly young life, we can’t wait until she embraces the badass inside of her once again. A beautiful woman who looks great whenever we see her in interviews or behind the scenes footage, Melissa herself is someone that anyone should be proud to have on their arm. Seen here in clothes that make her look like she’d be right at home in your local pub, her beautiful eyes are captivating.
10. Danai Gurira
A knife-wielding woman who was first introduced flanked by a pair of zombies whose arms she’d decapitated and whose lower jaws she’d removed, it was a perfect setup for the character. Unquestionably one of the most badass people on a show filled to the brim with them, she is someone who makes taking a life look as easy as a cutting through butter with a warm knife. Revealed to be a much more affectionate and empathetic figure than we first thought, we could easily argue that she is the second most important character on the show these days. Seen here wearing a one-piece swimsuit that reveals a lot more of what she is working with than we usually get to see, it is clear that she has a body to die for.
9. Alanna Masterson
When Tara, the character Alanna Masterson portrayed on the show, debuted she was part of the society that came under the thumb of The Governor and we thought of her as a simplistic evil person. Eventually disgusted by the man she’d spent her time following, especially after his beheading of Hershel, she turned against him and eventually earned the trust of Rick Grimes and the group. Revealed to be a lesbian as time progressed, she was one-half of one of the series most adorable couples, along with Dr. Denise Cloyd, up until her partner to be was killed. One of the most bountiful women on the show, seeing her here in a bikini top is impressive. Giving us a great view of her curvaceous chest, she clearly has cleavage for days.
8. Alexandra Breckenridge
Before you ask, we set up in our criteria section that in order for someone to be considered for this list they needed to be one of the stars of the series and it may seem like Alexandria may not qualify. A part of the main cast of the show in season six, she may not have stuck around long but that doesn’t mean she can’t appear here. A woman with an abusive husband and a couple of kids, there was an obvious attraction between her and Rick from the moment she debuted but things never were able to work out between the two. Looking ravishing here, with her red hair and captivating cleavage, we’d consider taking on and taking out her jerk of a husband too if we could be with that.
7. Christian Serratos
One of the more recent people who were added to the show’s main cast to make this list, Christian Serratos plays Rosita, a character that was introduced as part of a wild goose chase. Believing that her companion, Eugene Porter, was the key to finding a potential cure to the zombie outbreak, she was willing to risk her life to keep him alive. Eventually informed that her traveling partner had fabricated his importance in a bid to have stronger people keep him alive, she still managed to remain friendly with him after a period of anger. Seen here, while walking the red carpet during an event, her choice to wear a top that revealed one side of her breast is totally tantalizing.
6. More Danai Gurira
Recently put into a storyline on the show in which she has become romantically involved with Rick, the series’ main character, Michonne is being shown in a light we haven’t seen from her before. Portrayed as a sexual being, as one-half of the pair she seems to have a true bond with him and when we saw them give in to the attraction that had clearly been built up between them, it was pretty damn hot. An alluring woman who we’ve rarely had the opportunity to see smiling on the show, it is a real pleasure to see the magnificent whites of her teeth here. However, we’d be lying if we tried to pretend like that is her feature that we focused on the most in this photo. Instead, our eyes immediately went to her long and lean legs that look like they’d be gloriously soft to the touch.
5. Lauren Cohan
When Maggie was introduced in the second season of The Walking Dead, she was found living on the farmland of her family and seemed to be the most willing to see the new world order for what it is. Striking up a romance with Glenn after she debuted, there was little denying that they made a great pair as there was an obvious chemistry between them from the outset. Eventually losing both of her parents, her mother died prior to her joining the show, her sister and eventually her husband, she has had a tough life and we find ourselves continuously rooting for her. Brought to life by the transcendently beautiful Lauren Cohan, after looking at this photo of her our mouth was left agape as we got a view of her fantastic legs.
4. More Sonequa Martin-Green
We already touched on the dark days that Sonequa Martin-Green’s character, Sasha, has gone through on The Walking Dead as well as her tendency to go off on her own. Recently undergoing a bit of a shift after watching a man she was coming to care about be brutally beaten to death with a barbed wire wrapped baseball bat, she has started to bond with Maggie. Currently residing at Hilltop, where she was recently joined by several of her comrades in arms, they seemed prepared to finally fight their tormentor and we can’t wait to see it. After all, how great would it be to see her approach the object of her hatred seemingly scared and weak, only to open up and reveal the fearsome warrior underneath? Much like she is revealing more of herself here by holding open her jacket which has the great benefit of showing off her enticing chest to the world.
3. More Emily Kinney
Beth, the character Emily Kinney portrayed during her time on The Walking Dead underwent some compelling changes during the final days of her life. Having the first alcoholic drink of her life and learning to use a crossbow just prior to engaging in the story that would take her life, her final days were spent at a hospital. Taken there, where injuries she’d suffered were mended, she was expected to stay and follow rules she disagreed with in return. When she was finally rescued by other members of the group, she was ultimately killed because she took a stand against a fellow survivor being forced to remain at the hospital. A character whose death was shockingly emotional, we wished she could stick around longer. That emotion seems to make all the sense in the world while looking at a photo like this where the actress seems to be looking at the camera with an arousing come hither look.
2. More Lauren Cohan
A photo that we had a hard time denying the top spot on this list to, the only reason Lauren didn’t receive the accolade is there was another that was just that much hotter. Seen sporting a top that does little to cover up the side of her boob, there is very little we love more than seeing a great view of the body of someone as gorgeous as her. Additionally sporting a facial expression that communicates that she knows exactly what the top she is wearing is doing to everyone fortunate enough to see this photo, her face makes her figure that much better.
1. More Christian Serratos
It is just a matter of fact that if you are looking for a hot photo of an actress and they’ve appeared in the pages of Maxim, that will be a great place to start. Pictured here seemingly lying on the floor with someone’s feet flanking her on both sides; it is amazing to see her mid-riff on full display. However, the highlight for us has to be the opportunity to see her wearing a top that does a great job of showing off her cleavage which is something we’d never truly appreciated previously. As a star of a dark and depressing series, we rarely get the opportunity to see her all made up and now that we have all we can say is, give us more!
