'Walking Dead' Angel Theory Talks Representing Deaf Community in AMC Series

By

In Season 9, The Walking Dead fans were introduced to on-screen sisters Connie (Lauren Ridloff) and Kelly (Angel Theory). While aiding the Alexandria community in attempting to defeat Alpha and The Whisperers, Kelly has been fighting a battle of her own. In the Season 10 premiere, viewers learned that Connie’s younger sister is starting to lose her hearing. 

This Walking Dead storyline was inspired by the actor’s own personal life, as Angel is deaf in one ear and is progressively losing her hearing in the other. In an email interview with Insider, Angel opened up about her character’s journey in Season 10.
