14 photos that prove that the makeup artists of “The Walking Dead” are geniuses! Sensitive souls refrain…


While episode 14 of season 6 of “The Walking Dead” was broadcast last night in the United States (tonight on the OCS Choc channel from 8:40 pm), the series still brings together as many enthusiasts and recruits each year new followers.


We invite you to discover 14 images that present the radical physical changes that the actors-extras undergo playing the roles of zombies. Some make-up is just mind blowing! Under the leadership of executive producer and head makeup artist Gregory Nicotero, we can feel just how much the four makeup artists who work on prostheses, and other paintings adapted to the face, give everything in the mastery of their art … A mastery more or less used depending on the zombies. Those who will be in the foreground will require much more work. As for the others, the “gore” effects will be less picky on them.

Suddenly, the undisputed stars of this series… they are the zombies and that’s why the series bears their name. The actors-extras even go through the “zombie school”, where they learn to walk and behave like real “walkers” (“rôdeurs”, in French).

You should also know that at the start of each season, between 150 and 200 people are auditioned, from all over the world, to interpret these roles of the living dead. You have to be thin, have a face with rather fine and marked features… and above all know how to walk in a most macabre and scary way!
