The Walking Dead star IronE Singleton says Norman Reedus made him gag on set

The Walking Dead star IronE Singleton has recalled he couldn’t stop gagging on set because co-star Norman Reedus kept cracking gross-out jokes.

During a video conference at Wizard World, the actor, who played survivor Theodore ‘T-Dog’ Douglas in the post-apocalyptic drama’s first few seasons, looked back on a scene that sees his character and pal Dale Horvath (Jeffrey DeMunn) stumble across a bloated, decaying walker at the bottom of a well.

As it happens, said well is providing water to the farm in which they’ve recently taken refuge, so Dale, T-Dog and their allies Rick Grimes (Andrew Lincoln), Shane Walsh (Jon Bernthal), Glenn Rhee (Steven Yeun) and Maggie Greene (Lauren Cohan) attempt to get the unwelcome, undead resident out, through fear of it contaminating their supply.

Mid-yanking it up though, the zombie splits in half, which, according to Singleton, had Reedus – who wasn’t even in the scene – look at its innards, exclaim, “Wait, is that poop?” and subsequently, make everybody’s stomach churn.

“It was so nasty,” Singleton laughed. “I was gagging because we were out in a dirt field and there was a lot of dust being kicked up after every take, and then that mixed with the fact that this zombie was so disgusting.”

“Billy [Gierhart], who was our director on that show, he walked over to me, and I couldn’t stop gagging throughout the scene.

“He said, ‘IronE, I like the gag, but let’s try something else. Let’s do it a little differently.’ I was like, ‘I can’t help it, man! The dust is in my throat, I’m looking at this disgusting walker.'”

Guess it’s not just the viewers at home who squirm at the show’s eerily convincing special effects then, huh?

The Walking Dead‘s season 10 finale will air as a special episode later this year on FOX in the UK. You can also catch up on the show via NOW TV. In the US, the show airs on AMC.
