Before they became the lovable, rag-tag, zombie fighters and ad hoc end of the world family, the cast of The Walking Dead did other things. They are working actors after all and take the parts they can get. Let's see what some of them did before the apocalypse.
Norman Reedus who plays Daryl was in league with vampires before he fought zombies as Scud in 'Blade 2'. (Language Warning)
Andrew Linclon who plays Rick has been acting in his native UK for years. Here's look at him from the show 'Teachers'.
Steven Yeun has done voices for video games and had a few other parts before the dead walked. You may remember his prophetic meeting with Leonard Hofstadter.
Lauren Cohan who plays Maggie Greene was born in Pennsylvania but grew up in The UK. Before she and Glenn hooked up Lauren played Bela on The CW's 'Supernatural'.
