So many TWD actors are British?
Is there a shortage of American actors in Georgia?

Of course not. None of the lead actors are from Georgia - Georgia is just the shooting location.
Of the current main cast, Andrew Lincoln and Lennie James are English, but Lauren Cohen was born and raised in Philly - she got her accent, which is kinda a mishmash, during high school in the UK.
The casting wasn't done as such because of their heritage or accent — they fit the requirements the best.
