Before she was Jadis (aka Anne) on AMC's The Walking Dead, Pollyanna McIntosh was The Woman in Lucky McKee's 2011 movie of the same name (based on the book that McKee wrote with the late, great Jack Ketchum, aka Dallas Mayr) and also played the character in 2009's Offsping (which is based on a novel of the same name by Ketchum). For her feature-length directorial debut, McIntosh continues the story of The Woman with Darlin', and to celebrate Dark Sky Films' July 12th release of the film in theaters and on digital platforms, McIntosh will be at San Diego Comic-Con to meet fans and autograph posters for her new movie.
Pollyanna McIntosh's autograph signing and photo ops for Darlin' will take place on Thursday, July 18th from 11:00am–2:00pm at Autograph Area AA23 in the Sales Pavilion at the San Diego Convention Center. Any fans who bring proof of purchase of the movie to the signing will receive a free poster for McIntosh to sign.

"To celebrate the release of her directorial debut, POLLYANNA MCINTOSH (Jadis/Anne, The Walking Dead) will be heading to San Diego Comic Con to meet and greet her fans!
Pollyanna's directorial debut DARLIN' will be hitting theaters and digital platforms on July 12th.

Found at a Catholic hospital filthy and ferocious, feral teenager Darlin' (Lauryn Canny) is whisked off to a care home run by The Bishop (Bryan Batt, AMC's Mad Men) and his obedient nuns where she is to be tamed into a "good girl." However, Darlin' holds a secret darker than the "sins" she is threatened with, and she is not traveling alone. The Woman (Pollyanna McIntosh, The Walking Dead), equally fierce and feral, who raised her is ever present and is determined to come for her no matter who tries to step in her way.
DARLIN' sees standout star Pollyanna McIntosh both in front of and behind the camera, expertly commanding an all-consuming feast for the senses and sensibility in equal measure."
