Shooting a show that is about fending off a zombie horde is one that has to be ripe with excitement; however, can this even compare with sitting down for lunch with a guy who looks instead like he should be devouring someone’s brain? On the set of “The Walking Dead” season 3, this is more than just an occasionally occurrence; it is a reality of everyday life.
One of the newest editions to the show this year is none other than “The Wire” alum Chad Coleman, and he told reporters earlier this week a true-life story about just how awkward it was (and how it took getting used to) to be a part of a show that features makeup that is so great that it has you questioning whether or not zombies are real even when you are not filming:
“The zombies are so real, so it’s really no acting required, you just see the amazing work that’s being done … It’s just eerie … The most eerie part of it is to see them just doing regular things, like going to lunch break – just to watch a guy getting the salad dressing, and he’s all made up, all zombied out. It’s pretty hilarious.”
The producers behind “The Walking Dead” did a pretty stellar job at keeping Coleman’s casting as Tyreese a secret for as long as humanly possible, but moving forward on season 3 he is poised to have a rather significant role as a leader of another survival camp. In the comic books, he served more as a right-hand man to Rick; but considering that Daryl more or less has that role filled on the show, it will be interesting to see how he fits in with the group.
