Greg Nicotero is the special make-up effects supervisor on the set of The Walking Dead and Fear the Walking Dead (producer, and occasional director, too). The Academy Award winner (The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe, 2006), has applied extra features to hundreds if not thousands of actors in a variety of films – from Suicide Squad to Boogie Nights and Day of the Dead.
In The Walking Dead episode ‘Rock in the Road,’ Carol meets King Ezekiel and his tiger Shiva. Shiva isn’t a real tiger, thanks to the magic of Nicotero. He will talk about the episode with actor Khary Payton (King Ezekiel) on Talking Dead (Sunday, Feb 12, 10pm, AMC). To get a better take on Nicotero, check out the photo below of his posh living room. It’s decorated with a life-size Frankenstein, Werewolf, and the Creature From the Black Lagoon, among others.
