Holden is perhaps best known for her role in the megahit zombie apocalypse series “The Walking Dead,” on which she played the character Andrea for three seasons. Her other notable TV appearances include major roles on “The Americans,” “The X-Files,” and “The Shield.” On the film side, she has been in projects such as “Dragged Across Concrete,” “Arctic Dogs,” “The Majestic,” and “Silent Hill.” She also lent her voice to the animated film “Fireheart.”

She is repped by Gersh, Brillstein Entertainment Partners, and Jackoway Austen Tyerman.

“The Boys” stars Karl Urban, Jack Quaid, Laz Alonso, Tomer Capon, Karen Fukuhara, Erin Moriarty, and Antony Starr. It is based on the best-selling comic by Garth Ennis and Darick Robertson, and produced by Amazon Studios and Sony Pictures Television Studios with Point Grey Pictures, Kripke Enterprises and Original Film.

“The Boys” has proven to be a breakout hit for Amazon, with the streamer having given the comic book adaptation a renewal for Season 3 before Season 2 had even aired. In addition, Amazon is currently prepping a spinoff series set at a college for supes. As Variety previously reported, that series has been building out its cast and is largely expected to receive a series order.
