Anthrax - Anthrax Star Ian Turns Zombie For The Walking Dead

Anthrax guitarist Scott Ian has donned full prosthetics to appear as a zombie in the new series of The Walking Dead.
The musician is a big fan of the horror genre and was delighted to be asked to appear in an episode of the drama show.
Ian happily spent hours in the make-up chair in August (11) preparing to film his role as a member of the undead and he insists all the hard work was worth it.
In a post on his official website, he writes, "My agent got the call asking if I wanted to come down and get made up to play a zombie... for Amc's The Walking Dead directed by Greg Nicotero (effects God). I couldn't say yes to this fast enough... I've been wanting to do this my whole life. Zombies have always been my favourite genre of horror and to participate in something as killer as The Walking Dead would just be amazing. Truly my Make-A-Wish moment!
"I got to the set and headed straight for the makeup trailer. I was told I was getting the full-on zombie 'hero' makeup. That means I get the sick head/neck wounds done with silicone appliques... The whole process was pretty painless, even sitting for 90 minutes was cool because they were putting zombie makeup on me. I would've sat for five hours, I was so stoked."
After filming his scenes, Ian insisted on keeping his make-up on for the journey home.
He adds, "I kept the make-up on after the shoot and headed home. I got some great looks from people in other cars. I wanted to keep the makeup on all week! I got home and fed my eight-week-old son. His reaction was basically, 'Yeah, whatever, feed me ugly'."
The second season of The Walking Dead premieres in the U.S. on 16 October (11).
