Patrick told Insider in 2021 that he's been a fan of "TWD" for years. As he was home in Atlanta, Georgia, where the series films, during the pandemic, he was finally able to appear on the show.
"I often wondered, well, maybe someday I'll get a shot to get down there," Patrick said. "I'm just glad it finally fell into place where I could actually do it. They wrote such a great role that I read it and I went, 'Oh my God, how can you not want to do that part?'"
Former Savior Jared (Joshua Mikel) appeared briefly in 2015's "Terminator Genisys."
Joshua Mikel, who appeared on "TWD" from season seven through the season eight finale, was credited as the "angry driver" in the 2015 film starring Emilia Clarke.

Michael Biehn is the latest "Terminator" actor to appear on the zombie series.

The actor starred as Kyle Reese in 1984's "The Terminator."
On aftershow "Talking Dead," Biehn revealed he's been a fan of the series since the beginning.
"I was never offered a role until this past season nor did I ever audition for a role," Biehn said, adding that he received a call from his agent.
"They basically had offered me a role," Biehn said. "I thought it was a really fun character and so I absolutely said yes right away because, like I said, I've always wanted to be on the show."
