ANTHRAX's Scott Ian To Walk Amongst 'The Walking Dead'
- Posted by Nic Huber on August 17, 2011
Anthrax guitarist Scott Ian is set to appear in an upcoming webisode for AMC's The Walking Dead, posting on his official blog about his experience being morphed into a zombie.
"My agent got the call asking if I wanted to come down and get made up to play a zombie in a webisode for AMC’s '[The] Walking Dead'," Ian wrote on his blog. "I couldn’t say yes to this fast enough. Like I said in my Tweet, I’ve been wanting to do this my whole life. Zombies have always been my favorite genre of horror and to participate in something as killer as [The] Walking Dead would just be amazing."
"I was told I was getting the full-on zombie “hero” makeup," Ian described. "That means I get the sick head/neck wounds done with silicone appliques. Garrett Immel was doing my makeup, he’s one of the top dudes doing this on the planet. He explained how there are the main “hero” zombies, then the second tier background zombies which are more just makeup and blood and then there are the third tier background zombies with just makeup and if it’s a night shoot, they wear masks that read well on camera. Makes sense, they couldn’t spend 90 minutes each on 500 people every time there was a zombie crowd scene."
