Last night’s episode of “The Walking Dead” was filled with the zombie action and horrific human drama that fans have come to expect from the series, but it also included one thing that has yet to be seen on the AMC drama — Johnny Depp’s head. While speaking with Entertainment Weekly, director Greg Nicotero revealed how they made the trio of zombie heads featured in “Not Tomorrow Yet.”
Since all three heads needed to bear a resemblance to Hilltop leader Gregory (Xander Berkeley), a mold of Nicotero’s head was used as he looked the most like Berkeley. “One of the other heads, I don’t know if I’m going to get in trouble if I say this, was Johnny Depp,” revealed Nicotero. “I think we had sculpted an emaciated version of a dummy head for something and we used Johnny Depp’s head as a basis just for a clay sculpt. I can’t remember who the third one is, but I’m in good company. Norman [Reedus] kept saying he wanted the heads when we were done shooting. I said we’ve got to wait until the picture is logged.”
All three heads can be seen below, with the one modeled after Depp on the far right. Can you spot the resemblance?
