Fans of "The Walking Dead" must feel ecstatic with the first season of "Fear The Walking Dead," a spin-off and prequel series to the popular horror drama series. The new series, created by Robert Kirkman and Dave Erickson, premiered August 23rd on AMC, introducing a handful of new stars forming part of the cast, such as Kim Dickens (Madison Clark), Cliff Curtis (Travis Manawa) and Panamanian salsa singer Ruben Blades (Daniel Salazar).

One of the fresh faces on the show is Elizabeth Rodriguez, who talked to Latin Times about what's to come in the first season. "You can expect some family drama, suspense, some horror and some heartbreaking situations," the 34-year-old Puerto Rican actress said in a gist.

On the show, Rodriguez portrays Liza Ortiz, a single mother who was once married to Travis. She's described as the free-spirited bohemian type. She's also attempting to rebound from her disastrous marriage and is in nursing school. "I'm very protective of my son, I'm studying to become a nurse, that plays a very important role in the first six episodes," she said.

Cast member Patricia Reyes Spíndola also talked to Latin Times about her character, Griselda Salazar ---a Catholic and unwilling to justify the supernatural phenomena with science. "I feel that I represent the Latina woman and the Hispanic family," the 63-year-old Mexican actress said of her character. "A woman who wants to keep her family united, who has faith in God. During the crisis, she discovers that there's a lot of good people," she added.
