THE BOYS Unveils First Official Look At THE WALKING DEAD Alum Laurie Holden As Crimson Countess
Laurie Holden, best known for playing Andrea on The Walking Dead, was recently cast as Payback member Crimson Countess in the upcoming third season of The Boys, and we now have a first official look.
Still no trailer for the third season of Amazon's The Boys, but we do have a first official look at Laurie Holden as the Crimson Countess. The former The Walking Dead actress took to Twitter to share the promo image, which features the villainous(?) supe in a fairly comic-accurate costume.
In the the source material, the first Crimson Countess was active during World War II, while the second was a member of Payback. We assume this version will be an amalgam of both characters and one of Soldier Boy's (Jensen Ackles) teammates. She didn't last very long in the comics, but is expected to have an expanded role on the show.
We recently learned that Sean Patrick Flannery, Nick Wechsler, and Miles Gaston Villanueva have also joined the cast as Gunpowder, Blue Hawk and Supersonic, respectively.

Season 2 of The Boys ended with the death of Butcher's wife and the apparent disbanding of the team. We know they will reunite, however, most likely in attempt to bring down the increasingly psychotic Homelander. Queen Maeve was able to blackmail her rage-fuelled leader into backing off in the finale, but actor Anthony Starr has already confirmed that he will really let loose in Season 3.
It's also been confirmed that the highly controversial Herogasm comic book arc will be adapted, and showrunner Eric Kripke has hinted that the episode will be every bit as depraved as the comic.
