The Walking Dead - Walkind Dead Zombies Banned From Craft Service Catering Table

The zombie extras in hit new TV drama The Walking Dead have been barred from the set's catering table at lunchtime - because their graphic make-up and deformities put others off their food.
Reports suggest there are two sittings at the craft table - one for the squeamish and one for those who don't mind eating with the undead.
Actor Andrew Lincoln, who leads the cast, tells BlogTalkRadio.com, "We tend to keep the people who are extremely disfigured away from the main craft services. It's wild when you see someone smoking a cigarette and then the smoke comes out of their neck due to the latex. It's just not your normal day job."
But Lincoln's full of praise for the actors who make up the zombie army on the show: "The guys who play these zombies are the most committed people I've ever met. They have to get into make-up at something like four in the morning with four hours of make-up and then they're constantly in the sweltering heat in Atlanta, and they're being touched up during the day. It's brutal.
"The most brutal make-up I've ever had to endure was for Gangster No. 1 and my throat had been slit (as the character Maxie King), so they took quite a bit of time and I had this mad wig. Then I was electrocuted, so that was a pretty busy day for me."
