If you're interested in seeing Joanna Cassidy in her prime, find The Fourth Protocol, an excellent spy thriller with Pierce Brosman. She has a pretty memorable part in it.

I think it's impossible for zombies as depicted in TWD to cause a large population to collapse. Certainly not an advanced industrialized society.
