We’ve seen a couple characters from “The Walking Dead” make the leap to “Fear the Walking Dead, “ with Austin Amelio’s Dwight set to make the jump in the upcoming fifth season, and now one of the original stars of the main show has found herself in the director’s chair for the spinoff. Sarah Wayne Callies, who played Lori Grimes in the first three seasons of “The Walking Dead, ” is returning to the show’s universe by directing an episode of “Fear”! “So far the only thing I don’t like about it is having to direct myself, and so the great joy of the Fear job is I’m not acting in it, ” the actress recently told The ISA at Sundance. “And so I get to just focus on connecting with the actors and tracking the story and working with the department heads. It’s so awesome. I love it.” “It’s a really cool time to become a female director, ” she added. Previously, Callies directed episodes of “Colony” and “Unspeakable.” [embedded content]. .
