12. Eugene Porter
We'll admit that part of the fun of The Walking Dead is guessing which character we'd most resemble if the whole world went kerflooey. We all want to be Daryl, Morgan, or Michonne. The truth, however, is that most of us would be more like Eugene: a nervous nerd who relied on lies and loquaciousness to convince Abraham, etc., that he was worth protecting. Since admitting that he can't cure zombie-ism, the former high school science teacher has become determined to earn others' loyalty for real, and his tentative steps toward confidence and courage have been inspiring to watch. Plus any actor who can rock a mullet like Josh McDermitt is a-ok in our book.
