The Walking Dead star Emma Bell has praised the cast of the upcoming AMC zombie drama.

The actress - who plays Amy - told Comic Book Resources that she has read the original comic on which the series is based, and that the cast of the television version match their characters well.

"I think everyone is [perfect for their roles]," she said. "I can't imagine anyone else playing any of these characters. On top of that, not only do they all look like their characters, they're all such good actors."

She singled out her on-screen sister Laurie Holden (Andrea) for particular praise.

"Laurie... has been amazing," she explained. "She's been great in helping me be calm. Our emotional connection is very important to our characters, so the fact that we really love each other [helps]. Laurie and I - we've really bonded, we've really become like sisters."

Bell also described series star Andrew Lincoln, who plays police officer Rick Grimes, as "freaking amazing".

The Walking Dead will premiere on AMC in October.
