Season 4


  1. This character's husband, Mr. Richards was portrayed by Rob Fitts, a Woodbury extra from Season 3. Since Mr. Richards was from Woodbury, Mrs. Richards would have to be from Woodbury as well, and around the same age as Rob Fitts, leaving Leola Williams as the only candidate that fulfills the description of this role as there are no other older women from Woodbury at the prison.
  2. Actress was scheduled to film for "Too Far Gone" and "Inmates", where her character was set to die, but was unavailable to work the filming dates. Regardless, her character has been killed off.
