Extras Casting Call – The Walking Dead on AMC

Do you want to get madeup to look like a zombie and be an extra in AMC’s hit show The Walking Dead? If so, you may have a shot. The Walking Dead uses numerous extras to portray the zombies in the series and when the show is shooting, casting calls for extras go out in the Atlanta area where the series is shot.

The show is about to begin filming for the 2014 / 2015 season in Atlanta and may give those that want to be on the show a shot at it. Casting calls should begin next month and the show makes the people who are cast to be a walker attend a zombie school where they will learn how to walk and growl like a walker. People who have been cast on the series say being a zombie walker may not be as easy as it looks after applying all the heavy makeup.

So stay tuned for updates because casting for walkers and maybe even survivors will begin very soon.

About the show:

The Walking Dead just returned for a new season. The Dawn of the Dead type series is set in the United States after a infection killed off most of the population and then brought them back to life. The dead are walking a

Walking Dead – AMC Casting Call

round and trying to feed on the remaining humans and animals left alive. Society as everyone knew it is gone… no more TV, no more electricity, no more running water, no more department stores, and no more internet. The Walking Dead is the story of survival of one small group of people as they go about trying to get through life one day at a time.

The story begins with Rick, ex cop, waking up from a coma only to find the devastation outside and the blood thirsty zombies.

Rick meets other survivors and they keep moving trying to find safety. Rick looks for his family and miraculously finds them well and alive. The group now battles zombies and attempts to get the zombies before the zombies get them. They find guns and ammo along with other weapons, cars, gas, and food along the way.

This last season saw the prison come down and the tight knit group all got separated. With only 2 episodes left, we gotta hope they all catch up to each other very soon… or maybe that is what the season finale is for?

Here is an example of another extras casting call for The Walking Dead for a previous season – Season 2 saw over 6000 people apply to be zombies on camera.

  6. Aurora says:

    Hi, my name is Aurora (but you already saw that xb), I’m 13 years old, going to be 14 July 3rd. I’m 5’2″, Hispanic, and I have shoulder length brown hair with (almost black) brown eyes. It’s been my dream to act, although I’ve never done anything other than being an extra in a commercial for SRP or been a few films that my brothers or friends made. I live all the way out in Arizona, so being a “Walker” or something wouldn’t work out well. I’m hoping for a larger part in season 5, if that’s possible. I’d love an audition, even if I don’t get a part. I want to try at least!

    Hi I’m Hannah, I’m 17, 18 in March. I live in Corbin, Kentucky. I’ve tried everything I know to try to become a zombie extra on this show. I’ve wanted to become one ever since the show came out, it’s literally eating me alive (pun intended). I got the zombie walk down, the zombie moans, everything. Getting there won’t be a problem at all. I have natural blonde hair, giant blue eyes, I’m about 5’6 and weigh 117. If you wanna shoot me an email I’ll gladly attach a picture of myself for you. I’m a huge fan of the show and it’d be the neatest thing if I had even a slight chance of being one of the zombies. Thanks a bunch.
