Andrew Lincoln, who plays Rick Grimes on AMC’s hit series “The Walking Dead,” better watch his back after he and some members of the TV crew perfectly executed a zombie prank on fellow star Norman Reedus, known as Daryl Dixon on the show. After this terrifying stunt, he may be soon looking for some payback.
Nick Santonastasso, a one-armed, no-legged teenager and “Walking Dead” super-fan, was recruited for the prank flown to Tokyo, where the cast and crew was gathered for a press junket. He was the perfect fit as he regularly uploads his own zombie pranks on the Internet.
Santonastasso was given the full “Walking Dead’ zombie treatment by the show’s award-winning makeup team then hidden in a room where Reedus was set to do an interview.
At just the right time, the teen popped out and gave him quite a fright.
“You f***er!” the actor shouted with a smile.
As Gawker points out, the viral prank is apparently part of an ongoing effort to secure Santonastasso a role on the popular TV show.
