Walking Dead Inside Scoop

Walking Dead executive producer Robert Kirkman tells The Hollywood Reporter that the show is using body doubles to throw off fans who have been stalking the set to see who Negan killed. ” There has been a lot of tactics used in filming that have been used on films — monitoring actor movement and trying to do things in secret. We’ve employed body doubles in places to make people think that people are in places that they’re not. It’s pretty exciting to try and hide certain things. This is a big season, so we’re not just protecting things that happen in the first episode; there are things that happen in the second, third, fourth, fifth, sixth episode and beyond. We’re trying to maintain that secrecy so when people watch the show, they can have that same experience they have in the comic where you don’t know what’s going to happen and it comes as an exciting surprise as the story moves forward. There is a lot of secrecy surrounding this season and when people watch the episodes, they’ll see why and hopefully appreciate it.”
The new season premieres Sunday on AMC
