TV Series

Season 3


  • Eric's name was never confirmed on the show nor was he intended to be an established character, other than a Woodbury extra, but the name was given by actor Andrew Gostel, as he was informed he fit the description of James Lee Steagal (who at the time was known as Eric) from the Comic Series.[1]
  • While his actor confirmed that Eric, along with two other citizens, was not directly killed by The Governor as they fled through the woods, the casting director informed all extras that all Woodbury citizens are to be considered dead, despite whether or not they appeared in the Season 3 finale being gunned down by The Governor.
