‘The Walking Dead’ and ‘Guardians of the Galaxy’ have pumped up the recognition factor a thousand times. I can’t get off an airplane anymore. I don’t know how the hell they know and how these people find out. They must have some interesting, secret way of getting a hold of the flight manifesto or something.
The cosplayers are very fun. The kids are the best. Everyone is a kid at a comic con. There are some amazing stuff that goes on at these cons. The people have a blast. It’s so neat to see the fans lining up to see you and talk with you. And asking you questions.

I did ‘Slither,’ so I’ve done seven hours in the makeup chair. So two hours for zombie makeup is like nothing. That’s a walk in the park for me.
