Dana is a survivor of the outbreak in AMC's The Walking Dead. She is a resident and the doctor of the Kingdom.


Dana comes off as a rather condescending and strict person. As the doctor of the Kingdom, she is shown to be intelligent and is quite experienced. However, to those who she seems as not ready or uneducated, she often gives a hard time, saying "In my experience people who don't know enough are more dangerous than people who don't know shit." She initially gives Siddiq a hard time, hitting him with my questions about what he knows believing him to be not ready. However, Siddiq stands up for himself and shows that he is capable. Dana is admires this, stating that she likes Siddiq before sending him back to work.


Location Unknown

Nothing is known about Dana's life prior to or as the outbreak began, except that she was a surgeon.


Washington, D.C.

At some point in the apocalypse, Dana joined a community called the Kingdom where she became the main doctor.

Season 8

"Do Not Send Us Astray"

Following her evacuation to the Hilltop with the other Kingdommers, Dana has taken up the role of the community doctor. While the militia prepares for the upcoming battle against the Saviors, she is busy gathering supplies at the infirmary when Siddiq arrives with blankets and offers to help. Dana gives Siddiq a hard time until he snaps and demands that she start cooperating with him instead of fighting. Taken back in admiration, she tells Siddiq that she approves of him and sends him to work.

That night, at around 4:00 am, Dana heads towards the medical trailer until she finds the door wide open with a pool of blood at the doorway. Before she can react, she is bitten on the neck and killed by a zombified Tobin. A short time later, a reanimated Dana is along the zombified residents and refugees to attack the people sleeping inside the Barrington House. During the attack, Dana is put down with a knife to the face by Daryl. The next morning, she is buried in the graveyard with the other casualties.
