Unlike fellow recent cast additions Michael Cudlitz, Josh McDermitt and Christian Serratos, West's character is not based on a specific character from the comic books.

Since recurring on Greek as Fisher, West has guest-starred on CSI, Castle and Suburgatory, among others.

The Walking Dead airs Sundays at 9/8c on AMC.
