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

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.

    The walking dead is my favorite show on TV without a doubt. Robert Kirkman is a genius. I am a great actor. Had a small part in the siege with Denzel Washington and the Son of Sam in the late 90’s. I am back into acting again, I think I should be picked for the walking dead cause I know the show inside out, I breath, sleep, dream of the walking dead everyday and not to mention I would do a fantastic job….As an actor and as a character you will love me. Please consider me I woud love to be part of the walking dead. Thank you very much.

    I love walking dead so much. I would love to be a lonely girl looking for help and I see Carl and Rick and they help me or I would be a zombie. 15 years old and I am 5’6.

  15. Terry Rueckl

    My daughter is “dead”icated to The Walking Dead. She lives, eats, sleeps and breathes the characters, the show and everything The Walking Dead. I created a fathead mural for her wall for Christmas and that was her absolute favorite gift. Her ultimate dream would be to be a part of the cast, either in the form of a Walker (she won’t let me say zombie, because that is not what they are called in the show), or as a child actor. Every parent wants to help their children achieve their dreams, and this is one dream I would like to help her achieve!

    The walking dead is the best show ever! I’m a great actor and would love to be on the show. I’m 12 years old and the walking dead is my favorite show. I think that Carl should find a girlfriend and I could play that part and maybe in the end they would be the only ones left after the apocalypse to re-populate the world lol… But anyways, It would just be amazing to be on the show. I would even play a zombie.
