Casting scouts for ‘The Walking Dead’ have revealed that their most reliable source for ‘realistic extras’ is Warrenpoint we can reveal.
It is thought that Warrenpoint is a favourite for the zombie themed TV show because of the dead look in the local people’s eyes.
One AMC television executive told Newry Spud:
“There’s only so much makeup artists can do, so sometimes we need something more real. Anybody who’s been outside the Marine Tavern at the weekend knows that there’s plenty of Walking Dead talent lurking about”.
“Using Warrenpoint as our casting base also enables us to cut down hugely on acting coaches, as wandering around aimlessly while biting and chasing innocent passers-by seems to be their second nature”.
