5 Facts About THE WALKING DEAD’s Michael Cudlitz You May Not Know

If you’ve been watching The Walking Dead, chances are you’ve been completely mesmerized by the awesome Michael Cudlitz as Sergeant Abraham Ford. He’s been in plenty of films and TV shows throughout his wonderful career, but for those who are not familiar with him and his past work, I’ve compiled 5 facts about him to get you familiar with the greatness that is Michael Cudlitz

And here we go:

1. He was born in New York

2. He attended California Institute of the Arts 

3. His two most notable roles to date are Sergeant Denver ‘Bull’ Randleman from HBO miniseries Band of Brothers and Officer John Cooper from Southland. You should definitely check out both!

4. He won a Critics Choice TV Award in 2013 for his role on Southland, the last season of the show produced some of his best work. His character was the heart of the show in my opinion, you’d always wonder if Coop was okay or doing well.

5. His resume, which you can see at IMDb, shows that his range in genres is vast. He’s definitely one of the most underrated actors in the business. I highly recommend watching basically anything he’s been in. Some more shows he’s been in (whether big or small roles): Standoff, 24, CSI: Miami, Beverly Hills 90210, 21 Jump Street…to name a few.

He’s currently on The Walking Dead, as I said, and his character Abraham is from the actual comics the show is based on. He’s killing it on TWD and showing why he’s indeed a force to always be reckoned with. Have you seen any films or TV roles he’s been in? Leave your thoughts in the comments section below!
