First appearing in issue 69, Heath is one of Alexandria’s top supply runners, who later becomes Glenn’s supply-run partner following the group’s arrival at the Safe-Zone. Heath also has a romantic relationship with Alexandria’s doctor, Denise.

Hawkins stars as Dr. Dre in this year’s N.W.A. biopic, Straight Outta Compton. The actor’s other credits include Non-Stop and Iron Man 3.
Last season, AMC added another Alexandria resident from the comics in Aaron (played by Ross Marquand). Aaron played an important role in the show toward the end of Season 5, helping Daryl find his place among the people of Alexandria.
