A Walking Dead Walk-On! See You in Season 5!

Published in: News

I'm going to be on The Walking Dead!

I’m going to be on The Walking Dead!

I had a feeling I’d get turned into a zombie sooner or later, but I honestly didn’t think it would be this soon! As in this summer! In Georgia! ON THE WALKING DEAD!

Oh, please let me be in a scene with Daryl Dixon’s biceps…


That may or may not have been the first thought that went through my mind when I got a call last night out of the blue from AMC.

Apparently, one of the bigwig writers on the show, Angela Kang, likes reading beauty blogs (seriously, who knew there were so many makeup-loving zombie fanatics out there?!), and she got wind of our little #zombiebeautylove Twitter party during the finale.

So she invited me to be an extra on the show!

See!? Dreams really do come true.

I still can’t believe it… I’m going to be a zombie on The Walking Dead, but that’s actually just the icing on the cake. I’m also going to be getting a behind-the-scenes look at the makeup department and see first-hand how they turn someone into a zombie, which I’m really, REALLY excited about.

You can bet that’s gonna be a fun post.

I have no idea if I’m going to be in any scenes with any of the main actors, but you know me — I will do everything in my power to make it happen. πŸ™‚


If you have any questions you’d like me to ask — just on the off chance I’m actually able to ask them — let me know in the comments.

I’ll see you in season 5! WOO-HOO!

Your friendly neighborhood beauty addict,

    Holy mackerel! Have fun with that! Rick and Carol are my favorites. Don’t kill them, please? Although, honestly, it’d be kind of rad if you got to do that.

    Girl you have some of the best April Fools day pranks ever. Btw I’m still waiting to temporarily adopt Tabs! πŸ™‚

    April Fool’s?

    Although I would really love to see you on the show πŸ™‚

  5. cel says:

    I’m gonna keep an eye out for you! Would you know if you’d be a zombie or someone from terminus maybe?

  6. Saundre says:

    That’s going to be so much fun!!!! I’m so jelly right now, but you’re representing the Bay Area so it’s all love.

  7. Martha Nelson says:

    OMG!!! Karen that was so funny and well done!! πŸ˜€ let’s SAVE TABS!! πŸ˜€

  11. Kay says:

    Congrats, Karen! You must be so excited πŸ˜€

  12. Kayvid says:

    Happy April Fool’s Day!!!

  13. sarahc says:

    YOU HAVE TO BE KIDDING ME! That is so awesome, K!!! Take me with you! Please tell me they are going to let you bring Tabs. Zombie Tabs? When do you leave? πŸ™‚

  14. Cat says:

    Congratulations!!! That’s so awesome! Gobbling peanut M&M’s and downing Riesling while practically having a heart attack can certainly have its advantages! πŸ˜‰

    Ugh, so excited for you! Can’t wait to see the post and then spot you on the show!

  15. Kim says:

    Happy April 1st, my friend! πŸ™‚

    You would make a terrible zombie, anyway. Your teeth are way too nice, they’d have to have you in makeup for days just to ugly you up and you’re too kind to attack anyone (even Tabs doesn’t look nervous). HAHA!

    Still, it would be awesome (and it’s a terrific post!).

  16. Chritsine says:

    We can’t wait to welcome you to Georgia! What an amazing opportunity! I’m still dealing with that finale!!

    This is an April Fool’s Day joke, right? If it’s not, I’m seriously ecstatic for you, but do not tease us with the possibility of being that close to Daryl’s biceps, woman!! Tabs, is this true?! Haha

    The finale was amazing.

  19. Fancie says:

    Omg I’m so here for it!! Congrats! I can’t wait to see you on there!

  21. Trisha says:

    I’m sad I fell for this for as long as I did. Granted, it was only about 10 seconds, but still.

    Darn you, April Fool’s Day! *shakes fist*

    Nice one, Karen! Happy April Fools Day!

  23. heather says:

    LOL, the “behind the scenes” access thing gave it away. They keep all that stuff secret from cast members, let alone extras! Woulda been cool though. Happy 1st of April πŸ™‚

  25. Lulubelle says:

    Please let this be real, please let this be real!!!

    Cause it could be, ya know? Right?

  26. Vanessa says:

    the timing of this announcement is too suspicious πŸ™‚

    Nice job

  27. Sandy says:

    I am too gullible to live–I totally fell for it! πŸ™‚

    I heard a story on NPR this morning and made a mental note to look it up when I got home this afternoon–this is not a joke [unless it’s another joke on me, haha] , check it out–the third item has ‘Tabs’ written all over it. It’s a crazy lady cat t shirt. πŸ™‚


  28. Sandy says:

    Oh for heaven’s sake, that was a joke, too!! Damn you, NPR!! *shakes fist*

    I think I will go sit outside and wait for the Easter Bunny now, don’t mind me…

  29. Eva says:

    Hi Karen that is awesome. I would love to be a zombie on the walking dead. Can’t wait to see you on the season 5.

  30. Angel says:

    OMG I’m actually disapointed lol would have been amazing to live vicariously through you. My BFF lives in Atlanta and has done a ton of extra work for movies and shows but TWD is next to impossible to get on.

    Can we somehow makes this really happen? Haha

  31. holly says:

    Congrats, Karen! You will be the most beautiful zombie ever! please be sure to post the airdate on your blog so we can all TIVO it! I am originally from the East Bay Area like you (Lafayette) and now living in ATLANTA! So Welcome to the ATL! Hope you will have time to site-see while you are here. Highly recommend Piedmont Park, the High Museum of Art, and the Varsity.

  40. Daphne says:

    Ok, I am an idiot!! Should have read the other comments first before posting. Never occured to me it was April Fools!! But you really would have been an awesome zombie!!

  41. Natalie says:

    That’s so awesome! My Hubbie and I just went to Megacon and we got to sit in on a Walking Dead panel with 5 of the stars. It was totally awesome!

  42. Vanessa says:

    While prepping for the season finale, I was thinking of this post so I looked it up, thinking “I didn’t see Karen this season!” After reading the comments, was this an April Fools joke last year?! You had me going, a whole year later LOL… I even told my husband that one of my beauty bloggers was going to be an extra in The Walking Dead πŸ™‚
