If you ask someone to name top 3 the most popular TV series in the world, they would probably say Game of Thrones, Breaking Bad, and The Walking Dead. It seems that everybody is watching them (or has watched them at some point) and everybody is talking about them all the time. But let’s focus on The Walking Dead for a moment.
How often did you meet your friends and the talk started with: “Have you seen the last episode? It was crazy! And that girl! Man, she’s so hot!” The Walking Dead has been one of the favorite topics up for discussion since 2010 when the first season aired. It is a post-apocalyptic horror story based on comic book series and it has inspired a series of video games as well. The whole franchise has spread all around the globe with millions of people getting completely hooked on it.
But if you’re not The Walking Dead fan and you don’t care too much for the zombies vs. people theme, there is another great reason for watching this series, especially if you like to see hot women on the screen. Here are 15 pictures that prove that The Walking Dead has the most irresistible female cast!
15 Emily Kinney
Well, look at this cute little blonde. Emily surely is one irresistible and sweet girl. She was a part of The Walking Dead cast for 5 years (2011-2015) and she appeared in 49 episodes in the role of Beth Greene. It’s almost impossible not to have seen her in some of the popular TV series over the past 10 years because she had both major roles, as well as guest appearances on shows such as Conviction, Ten Days in the Valley, Flash, Forever, Law & Order: Criminal Intent, and much more. Besides her love for acting, she is passionate about other forms of art as well and she is a talented singer and songwriter. She actually contributed to the first AMC Original Soundtrack for The Walking Dead. She also released four albums of her own.
14 Alicia Witt
Even though Alicia Witt is only 42 years old, she already has a three-decade long career and a huge number of appearances in various TV series and movies behind her. It all started in 1984 when she was 9 years old when she portrayed Alia in David Lynch's Dune. After that, her career had just exploded. In The Walking Dead, she appeared in only 2 episodes of the Season 6 in the role of Paula. The episodes were "The Same Boat" and "Not Tomorrow Yet". Besides her successful acting career, Alicia is also an accomplished singer and songwriter, as well as an amazing pianist, and she has been performing all over the world. Her piano-driven rock has been very popular over the last years and she has recorded three albums so far.
13 Sarah Wayne Callies
Sarah Wayne Callies portrayed Lori Grimes in The Walking Dead and she appeared in 35 episodes in that role. She is actually best known for her role of Dr. Sara Tancredi in another popular TV series – Prison Break, which was also her breakout role. Not only she’s a talented actress with a Master of Fine Arts, she also enjoys things like flying trapeze, Argentine tango, and Hawaiian music since she was raised in Honolulu. In 2008, she was voted one of Maxim’s hottest women and when you look at this picture, it is immediately clear why. She is definitely one of the hot girls that make The Walking Dead even more interesting (if crazy zombies walking around simply don’t cut it for you). For every ugly and terrifying zombie, there is also one hottie to balance things out.
12 Alexa Nikolas
Alexa Nikolas was born in Chicago in 1992 which makes her one of the youngest girls from our list of irresistible gals from The Walking Dead. She appeared in only 3 episodes of season 3 ("The Suicide King", "Made to Suffer","Hounded") in the role of Haley. She made an appearance in a bunch of different TV shows, such as Criminal Minds, CSI: Miami, Red State etc., but she almost never scored one of the main roles. She actually did most of her work while she was a kid and she hasn’t filmed anything since 2013 (the same year she appeared in The Walking Dead). Who knows what the future holds for Alexa but it would definitely be a shame not to see her on screen anymore, not just because of her great looks, but because of her talent as well.
11 Alexandra Breckenridge
Well, who doesn’t like a gorgeous redhead? There is no doubt that Alexandra Breckenridge is one sexy tough cookie. She appeared in a number of popular TV series; she portrayed Moira O'Hara and Kaylee in American Horror Story, she was one of the voices in the Family Guy, she played Sophie in This is Us, and, of course, Jessie Anderson in The Walking Dead. Besides being great at her acting job, she is also an awesome photographer and her photos have been featured in a couple of different galleries in Los Angeles. She is a huge fan of horror movies, especially psychological thrillers, and her all-time favorites are Rosemary's Baby and The Shining. She is also a big tattoo fan and she has several tattoos on her body, but they mostly get covered with makeup while her scenes are being filmed.
10 Christine Woods
Christine Woods is a beautiful Irish-American actress who appeared in just a couple of episodes of The Walking Dead, but if you’d seen her, you’d probably remember her. She portrayed Officer Dawn Lernerin three episodes in 2014; "Coda", "Crossed", "Slabtown". However, her character had a very important role in the story. She is known for other roles besides The Walking Dead, such as the role of Janie in TV series Go On, the role of Julia in Perfect Couples, Jessica in Hello Ladies, and so on. All in all, she appeared in a number of different TV series and a couple of movies as well. In 2014, she won Zed Fest Film Festival award for outstanding acting performance in Franky and the Ant. We hope we’ll see much more of her in the future.

She was born on Long Island but she spent most of her life in Los Angeles, California. She has one brother and three half-brothers, and she developed her passion for acting because of her older brothers that starred in a couple of television shows during the ‘90s and early 2000s. She spent a lot of time with them during the filming process and fell in love with acting.
8 Christian Serratos
As many other girls born and raised in California, Christine always had a dream of becoming a famous performer. Even as a toddler, she loved to be the center of attention and she used to entertain her whole family by re-enacting TV shows. At the age of 7, she became a model, but she also studied ballet, other dance styles, as well as figure skating. She used to compete in figure skating competitions and was quite successful in it. She got various small roles in different movies and series, but the first role that made her really recognizable was the one of Angela in the Twilight Saga that was popular amongst the teenagers in the whole world. However, she is best known for her role of Rosita Espinosa in The Walking Dead since 2014.

You might also remember her from some other TV shows where she appeared on a regular basis, such as Once Upon a Time where she portrayed Tamara, Good Wife in the role of Courtney Wells etc. Soon we’ll also have a chance to see her in her newest project, TV series Star Trek: Discovery that is filming right now with Sonequa portraying Lt. Cmdr Michael Burnham. She will probably look great in that Star Trek uniform because she is irresistible no matter what she wears.
6 Lauren Cohan
If you are The Walking Dead fan, then you know Lauren Cohan as one of the main characters - Maggie Greene. You also might remember her from The Vampire Diaries, The Mindy Project, Archer and many other series and movies.

She has dual U.K. and U.S. citizenship, her mother is Scottish and her father is American, and you might have noticed her irresistible English accent.

As far as The Walking Dead goes, she appeared in the Season 5 in the role of the vigilant Officer Shepherd in three episodes: "Coda", "Crosses", and "Slabtown". If you missed her in this series, you might have seen her playing Henry’s wife in Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter, Mariam in Terminator Genesis, Nicole Glantz in TV series Powers and so on. Her lovely face is surely hard to miss, especially due to her big, gorgeous eyes that make her completely irresistible. One can hope we’ll see much more of Teri in the future, but the way her career has started, there is nothing to worry about in that department.
4 Beth Keener
Beth Keener is a lovely actress who played Annie in two episodes of The Walking Dead in 2015. You might have seen her in the episode "Thank You" and "First Time Again". In case you missed those two, you might recognize Beth from a couple of other TV series, such as Vampire Diaries, Army Wives, Tree Hill, Reckless, Finding Carter, and so on, but she wasn’t playing main characters in either one of them. She mostly appeared as a guest actor in an episode or two. However, you might recognize her by some other names she uses from time to time, for example, Elizabeth Lynn Hingley or Elizabeth L. Keener. No matter the name, she is always equally gorgeous with her beautiful eyes and long brown hair, as well as a rocking body.
3 Keisha Castle-Hughes
Keisha Castle-Hughes appeared in only one episode of The Walking Dead so you might have easily missed her if you’re not one of the hardcore fans who has seen each and every episode. She portrayed Joan in the episode "Slabtown". If you can’t remember her from there, you probably know her as Obara Sand from the Game of Thrones or as Queen of Naboo from the Star Wars: Episode III - Revenge of the Sith. Her first role was the one of Paikea in the movie Whale Rides in 2002 (she was only 12 years old) and it was actually just a fortunate discovery. The movie makers went to her school in search for their actress and she stood out from the rest of the children and that’s how she got chosen.
2 Christine Evangelista
Christine Evangelista is an American actress who appeared in a number of popular TV series, such as The Good Wife, Law & Order, White Collar, and, of course, The Walking Dead.

After many guest appearances in series and movies, this year she finally scored one of the main roles in the new TV series The Arrangement where she plays an actress who was offered a $10 million marriage contract with a huge star from Hollywood. The way her career took off, we will probably have a chance to see Christine more often on the big screen.
1 Danai Gurira
Well, look at that super toned and lean body of Danai Gurira! She definitely should show more skin more often. This gorgeous lady was born in Iowa, but when she was 5 years old, her parents moved back to Zimbabwe where they were originally from. Not only she’s a talented actress, but she is also a great writer. In fact, she was awarded Best Playwright at the 2013 NAACP Theatre Award for her work on The Convert.
As far as The Walking Dead series goes, she portrayed Michonne, one of the main characters since 2012 up until today. She has appeared in 96 episodes so far and there will be more in the future. Good job, Danai! Keep up the great work! We’re surely excited to see what else you have in store for us!
