Which Award-Winning Actress Is Begging for a Role on The Walking Dead?

Posted on

 

The Walking Dead may have a new supervillain killing off fan-favorite characters, but that isn’t stopping other actors from wanting to take part in the hit show!

Proving that knowing the right people is half the battle sometimes, Maria Bello chatted with PEOPLE Now about talking her producer friend into getting her a part on the record-smashing zombie drama.

“I am obsessed with the show,” said Bello, 49. “I have a friend who’s a producer on it and I’ve asked them to write me a part, which apparently they are for next season.”

The former ER actress admits she’s a huge fan of the captivating show that often leaves viewers guessing about the fate of their favorite characters. Bello wants to be on the show so bad that she’s even willing to play one of the walkers!

“Even if I just play a zombie,” joked the actress. “I said, ‘I’ll just come out and play a zombie for an episode, I don’t care!’ But it is my favorite show.”

Looks like we’ll have to keep an eye out for any familiar-looking zombies next season!

The Walking Dead airs Sundays (9 p.m. ET) on AMC.
