References

  1. "Hero Walker" is the term used on set by production when classifying zombies based on where they appear in scenes. Extras designated as "Hero Walkers" are used up close in scenes and have the most amount of makeup and prosthetic compared to other zombie extras who are in the far background or in the back of herds and seen less, thus needing less makeup and prosthetic.
