North Texas Cheerleader Doubles As Unlucky Walking Dead Zombie

"I got shot in the shoulder, but I kept coming back. I do like the decapitation. That is my favorite."

Sophomore North Texas cheerleader Taylor Towery has quite an interesting side gig: She's a Walker—read: zombie—on The Walking Dead. Her father works as a stunt coordinator for the show, so Towery's broke into the television business as a monster that gets killed frequently.


From an interview on The Big Mac Blog:

I've been killed a total of five or six times. I've been stabbed a few times, shot, hit in the head with a shovel. I was in front of a fence and the zombies trampled over me, and I got shot in the head.

Towery describes the whole experience as "fun," multiple times. Keep reading to find out how she dies this season.
