The Walking Dead is one of AMC’s newest critically acclaimed programs. The story follows a group of people trying to survive after an outbreak that causes the dead to rise again as zombies. The story is based on the extremely successful comic book series written by Robert Kirkman. Rick Grimes is a police officer and unofficial leader of the group and he is tasked with trying to find a safe place for his family and the group they are traveling with. Officer Grimes is played by Andrew Lincoln and his partner from before the zombie apocalypse is played by Jon Bernthal, and these two men are tasked as the protectors of this group of survivors. The first season of The Walking Dead won and was nominated for several awards, including best television presentation.
Shooting for The Walking Dead was taking place in and around the Atlanta area. Most, if not all, of the main roles are already cast, but there are usually casting calls for extras to play zombies. Playing a zombie extra takes a lot of make up and time, but can still be a satisfying experience. If you live in the Atlanta area and would like to take a shot at paying a zombie, the walking dead could be a great opportunity.
