Connie is a stealth fighter and remains ever dedicated to protecting her sister. She is open to accepting a new way of life and building friendships within the communities, but her focus on the Whisperers does not leave room for much else. Does she have tunnel vision in her mission or is it an excuse for her to distance herself from an expanded life.
Prior to her role as Connie on AMC’s The Walking Dead, Lauren Ridloff was nominated for a Tony Award last spring for Lead Actress in a Play for her Broadway debut in Children of A Lesser God. Ridloff was called a “sensational find” by Ben Brantley of the NY Times and credited with a “blistering, knockout professional debut performance" by the Times’ Jesse Green.
Ridloff has guest starred on NBC's New Amsterdam and The CW's Legacies. She plays a supporting roles in the upcoming indies The Magnificent Meyersons and Sound of Metal. Ridloff also appeared in the Todd Haynes’ Palme D’Or-nominated film Wonderstruck. A former Miss Deaf America, Ridloff is of African-American and Mexican descent.
