It’s with great pleasure that Geek Insider got to sit with Aliyah Royale before the October 4th season premiere of AMC’s The Walking Dead: World Beyond, where she portrays Iris Bennett. The Walking Dead blog, Iris is an above-average high school student who is well-liked and relatively safe behind the walls of their community. 
This generation of TWD has only known a world with walkers and Iris is determined to follow in her scientist father’s footsteps and find a way to bring the world back to what it once was. Together with her adopted sister, Hope, and two friends, they embark into a world fraught with danger, but a life of freedom despite the hardships and danger.
In The Walking Dead world, we are ten years ahead now and we see a glimpse of more aged and decrepit walkers. Is there hope for a society beyond the protected gates of these small pockets of society? Time will tell.
