'El Medico' ('The Physician') Madrid PremiereAnother new face is coming to "The Walking Dead" in season 6. British actor Tom Payne has joined the cast of the AMC zombie drama as a recurring character, with an option to return in season 7, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

Spoilers ahead!

Payne ("Luck," "The Physician") will play Paul Monroe, aka Jesus (pronounced like the Biblical figure). In the comics, he is a resident of Alexandria who moved there from a place called Hilltop Colony. Paul is described as "a rare logical man and skilled adviser with a strong sense of morals and values who is well-adapted to the new world."

Paul becomes a key figure in the Alexandria group's fight against the brutish Saviors, led by the evil Negan. However, it's unclear if Negan will be introduced this season. Other signs have pointed to this season's villain being Gregory, who runs the Hilltop Colony.

"The Walking Dead" season 6 premieres October 11 on AMC.
