OK … stop looking at me, MJ! You're making me laugh! Stop it! Stop making silly faces! I'm trying to get serious here... ahem.... because I guess nobody appreciates comedy … LOL and tell a few more interesting facts from the Walking Dead, that I learned. Accents -
The actors who play “The Gov'na” and Rick both have real British accents.
For them to talk “Southern American” - they are doing an “accent” to them.
Gal who plays Maggie is from Australia and she has a natural Australian accent that she too, has to cover up.
The guy who plays 'The Gov'na' – when he first got the role... studied Bill Clinton films, because he wanted the character to walk, talk, drawl, drool (
) & have mannerisms that matched Bill Clinton. He apparently really draws upon this when the The Gov'na talks to the crowds or is trying to convince someone of something. Watch & listen to him – now knowing this – and see if you see or hear it.
The show has had numerous cuts for when any one of them, 'flubs' a line or word and or their natural accent is heard. Now it's supposed to be like a game between them – who gets caught next? - and no one wants to get caught.Zombies & Background “Extra's
Each person that has ever played a zombie is given a number … and is only referred to & called by that number. No names are ever uttered, to zombies directly in scenes or the background.
IE: “Cut! #47 – stop the exaggerated limp and walk as you were shown.” ( LOL )
For scenes with large numbers of zombies, the director has a zombie cheat sheet or master list of the zombies numbers so he can refer to them.
IE: #47 is the second on the outside left, moving forward...
Just interesting that these people never get called by their given name at “work.”
In the beginning of the series... some of the people who had other jobs on the show were given roles as zombies and background zombies, to fill in. Now the show is soooo popular, everyone wants to be a zombie! Currently the show has all they need and entry is “won” by a lottery or contest, which has proven to be super popular. Nobody wants to get “fired” as a zombie extra, so those folks are always on their toes, to be good.
Every zombie has to first go to a zombie school, where they are taught some basics and how-to. From there, they can help pick out clothes & “personalize” their zombie, but are never allowed to “ad-lib” anything, ever. They also have to sit and watch the make up process, before it happens to them and go thru allergy tests of the substances used, ahead of time.
Guy who plays Daryl, goes off on his motorcycle and rides for long hours, by himself, between scenes.
People often forget that Herschel is actually a veterinarian and not a medical doctor, on the show.
All his scenes are "green-screened back grounds" so they can remove his missing leg, on the show.
There is a major fare-well party when a big cast member goes … and a minor one for smaller characters, but everybody who gets killed – except zombies - gets a good-bye party, one way or another.
Hmmm.... that's about all I can think of at this time.... If anyone else knows any inside info on the show, please... join in.
