You are one of the famous The walking Dead Zombie Pictures,how does it feel to see yourself 1000 times in www as a zombie or on magazine covers?


Thank you for the opportunity. Being on so many items has been surreal. I still get giddy when I see myself on something new.

This was not the first time you played in a zombiefilm, you also a part of Zombieland, what is the difference between the movie and The Walking Dead?


I enjoyed my role in Zombieland. The pace was much different and the eye contacts were smaller. It was a more bloody zombie, took me days to get the blood out of my ears. laughs. The Walking Dead contained long hot days in the Georgia humidity. The contacts were bigger and my eyes would dry out, so they would roll up in my eyes. We also wore long sleeve clothing that made it hot.

The Make-up is awesome, how was it for you in the and under the make up?


I did enjoy watching the make up process for both. I felt as though I was the canvas and they were putting their art work on me. That was the best part of all of it!

The walking Dead is now a part of your history, but you also worked in Ben 10 and Drop Dead Diva, where will we see you next?


I directed a segment on the grindhouse film Cry For Revenge with Christina Lingberg. Hoping that will be out this year. I play the role of Flo on This Old Machine, Victoria Stubaker in the film Prosper, Victoria in the film All Hallows Evil: Lord of the Harvest,


Debbie's Mom on Hell Night, I play a detective in Encuetrate, and there is a little webseries called Lumber Baron of Jasper County that I play the role of Sam in.
