Duane Jones twd.jpg

Duane Jones, played by Adrian Kali Turner, is a character in the television series The Walking Dead.

Duane is Morgan's son. In the first episode, he finds Rick Grimes and knocks him out, mistaking him for a walker. Duane stays with his father when Rick offers to take them to Atlanta.

When Rick encounters Morgan again in the third season, Morgan explains that Duane was killed by his undead mother.

"Duane Jones" also happens to be the name of the late actor, who starred as the heroic protagonist "Ben" in the original zombie movie Night of the Living Dead (1968). Whether or not Duane was put down by Morgan upon reanimating is unknown; it remains ambiguous whether Morgan put him down or allowed him to "survive" as a walker, like his mother.
