One of the best things about being an actor (apart from the endless parties, annual holiday in rehab and adopted children, of course) must be the chance to sit in hair and makeup for a few hours and get transformed into a zombie.
I was really anxious, how do you be a zombie? That's not something you prepare for as an actor, you don't really know. They had a movement coach come in and teach us all different ways to use our body and how to find our own unique Deadite. It was physically taxing, we were all really uncomfortable. You're covered in blood and prosthetics and makeup. It was so worth it though, it was so amazing.
