We’ve all experienced it: You’re watching a show and suddenly you recognize the actor on-screen… but you have no idea where you’ve seen him or her before. It’s like having an itch your fingers can’t quite reach.

Odds are good you’ve felt this way during AMC’s Fear The Walking Dead (especially if you’re a Deadwood fan!).

Here are 10 series that featured members of the FTWD cast, whether you recognized them or not.

7 Questions We Have for 'Fear the Walking Dead' Season 6

We're probably not getting new episodes for a few more months, but that hasn't stopped us from thinking about 'FTWD.'

Fear The Walking Dead, Season 6 Premiere, Summer 2020, AMC


Daniel Sharman, Teen Wolf

Sharman starred on the MTV drama for several seasons as Isaac Lahey, before he played the morally gray Troy Otto on Fear.


Lennie James, Line of Duty

Yes, that is Morgan wearing glasses! Before he was on The Walking Dead and its spinoff, James stared in this cop drama, which also starred Westworld’s Thandie Newton.


Kim Dickens, LOST

She played Cassidy Phillips, a love interest of Sawyer (Josh Holloway) and a onetime ally of Kate (Evangeline Lilly) prior to landing the lead role of Madison on Fear the Walking Dead.


Jenna Elfman, Dharma and Greg

If your first reaction on seeing June was to laugh, it’s probably because you remember Elfman as Dharma from this ‘90s ABC sitcom.


Danay Garcia, Prison Break

Way, way before she was Luciana, Garcia starred on FOX’s Prison Break in its third season as Sofia Lugo.


Kim Dickens and Garret Dillahunt, Deadwood

Plenty of FTWD cast came from this iconic HBO western. Dickens played Joanie Stubbs while Dillahunt (Fear‘s John) played more than one character. Dayton Callie, Jeremiah Otto on Fear, also appeared on Deadwood.


Frank Dillane, Sense8

Before playing Nick Clark for three seasons, Dillane played Sense8‘s Shugs, who starts out as one of Riley’s (Tuppence Middleton) friends — and then becomes her enemy. Potterheads would also know Dillane as a younger version of Tom Riddle, from Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince.
