The Walking Dead: World Beyond is a new spin-off series which forms part of The Walking Dead franchise. The series is set 10 years after the apocalypse and it is available to watch on Prime Video and AMC each week. Express.co.uk has everything you need to know about who is in the cast of The Walking Dead: World Beyond, and some of the cast spoke exclusively to the website.
Hope is one of the main characters in the series and she is a 16-year-old who experienced some serious trauma as a child.
She was only young when the sky fell and it marked the start of the apocalypse, and during the event, she was separated from her mum and sister Iris.
She watched her mother die and it has haunted her ever since, and she believes she has experienced the worst fate possible.
Hope is played by Alexa Mansour, an American actress known for her previous roles in Unfriended: Dark Web and Loco Love.
Speaking exclusively to Express.co.uk about her character, she said: "Hope saw her mum die and it built her up to become this person who doesn't really care about anything because she has seen the worst.
"Her strength is she doesn't care, she's not worried about everything, and her weakness is she holds so much against herself and so much guilt that she gets in her own way a lot.
"Her motto is hope for the best but expect the worst."
The young star said she had auditioned for the original Walking Dead series many times before.
She said: "I would say I auditioned for the show three or four times a year for like three years. When I got this one and I saw the scenes it was this girl who is super against authority.
"In the audition I was like I really like this girl and I really like her attitude, I wanted to be like her."
