This 'Walking Dead' Actress Is Much Older Than You Think

If you watch "The Walking Dead," you're familiar with the character of Beth.

She's the 16-year-old farmer's daughter on the AMC hit zombie series.

And, from the looks of it, you'd have no reason to believe she isn't a teenager herself.

In real life, Beth is portrayed  by actress Emily Kinney,  and t hough her youthful looks may pin her as no older than 20, she's actually  old enough to be dating her on-screen sister's boyfriend Glenn (Steven Yeun) who is 29.

So, just how old is "The Walking Dead" actress?

She's actually 27.

Kinney started acting in 2007.

F or the past five years, she's made appearances in "Law & Order: Criminal Intent," "The Good Wife," and "The Big C."

While we were at New York Comic Con this past October, 13-year-old actor Chandler Riggs who plays Carl on the series hinted there may be a budding relationship between the two in the future; however, after learning her age we're pretty sure there's a fat chance of that happening.
