Ashley Reyes has been added as a series regular to Walker, per Deadline. Reyes, who will first appear in the next episode of Walker titled “Nudge”, plays Cassie Perez.
Here’s the synopsis for Nudge, airing March 3, which mentions a bit about her character:
“CORDELL GETS SOME ASSISTANCE ON A NEW CASE – A feisty officer Perez (guest star Ashley Reyes) mistakes Cordell (Jared Padalecki) for a suspect. Trey (Jeff Pierre) offers to help Liam (Keegan Allen) with a project. Meanwhile, Colton (guest star Jalen Thomas Brooks) is struggling with his feelings for Stella (Violet Brinson).”
The show has been hinting at finding Cordell a new partner after Lindsey Morgan left the show due to personal reasons. We’re excited to see where the story goes and excited to welcome Ashley Reyes to the Walker family!
