Walkers, machine guns, dangerous Ferris wheels… it’s all in a day’s work on the set of The Walking Dead.
When Rick and Michonne find a carnival overrun with armed walkers, there’s no times for rides, just a series of death-defying stunts and battles. In a new video detailing the making of Season 7, Episode 12, “Say Yes,” the cast and crew show how they created those stunts and had a good time doing it.
“This is really the one point in the season where there’s room for a little bit of fun, a little bit of humor,” says Co-Executive Producer Matt Negrete, writer of Episode 12.
He wasn’t the only one laughing. Rick had quite a tough time pulling a walker — which was part actor and part dummy — from a car windshield.
“Anything that is at Rick’s expense is funny,” according to Andrew Lincoln.
To top it all off, the duo falls through a roof and encounters a walker firing a machine gun, but somehow Danai Gurira describes it all as “fun kills… good day!”
