Shane Walsh

Played by Jon Bernthal

Shane Walsh (Jon Bernthal), a Deputy Sheriff, is Rick Grimes' (Andrew Lincoln) partner in the television series "The Walking Dead." In the aftermath of the zombie apocalypse, Shane left Rick in the hospital of their hometown and set out for Atlanta, with Rick's wife Lori (Sarah Wayne Callies) and son Carl (Chandler Riggs) in his care. Banded together with a group of survivors and settled in a makeshift camp, Shane became the group's leader. In Rick's absence he also bonded with Lori and Carl. Without Rick in charge, Shane discovered that he liked being the one everyone needed for protection in their terrifying new world. When Rick unexpectedly re-entered his family's life, Shane had to adjust although he did not handle it well and resentments flared.
