If you asked the average Walking Dead fan who the stars of the hit series are, they’d likely be able to rattle off at least a few names: Andrew Lincoln, Norman Reedus, Steven Yeun, Lauren Cohen, Danai Gurai. The talented ensemble at the center of AMC‘s horror series have helped the show become a breakout success over its last six seasons. They’ve made names for themselves, too, and have become some of the most recognizable faces on television.
But few of us ever think about the other stars of the series — the ones that keep Rick, Daryl, and the rest of them on the run. They’re the walkers; hoards of decrepit zombie creatures that lumber after the series’ characters in almost every single episode.
