The Best Walking Dead Characters, Ranked

Who is your favorite character on 'The Walking Dead' TV series? With season three of this awesome drama series in the can, it's time to decide who the best 'Walking Dead' characters are, by voting. 'Walking Dead' fans, get ready to sound off, by casting your votes up or down for the characters in this AMC drama, which is without a doubt one of the best shows on TV right now.

It's no surprise that many of us believe that Rick Grimes (played by 'Walking Dead' actor Andrew Lincoln) is the best character on 'The Walking Dead.' The same can be said for Daryl Dixon (Norman Reedus) and several other original characters, some who are, sadly, no longer with us.

Are there any deceased 'Walking Dead' characters you'd like to return to the show? Were you crushed when (spoiler alert!) Laurie Holden's Andrea finally bit the dust in the season three show finale? Not everyone was, but a lot of us would love to see T-Dog return.

Love them or hate them, the 'Walking Dead' characters are the heart of this excellent show - and example of the very best of premium cable's original programming, without a doubt.
