‘The Walking Dead’ actor has Johnny Depp’s severed head in dressing room

Depp's likeness was used for a prop in the show

The Walking Dead actor Norman Reedus has uploaded a photo of what appears to be Johnny Depp’s severed head on his dressing room table.

A prosthetic head modelled on Depp was used in a gory scene during the last season of the show with Reedus, who plays Darryl Dixon in the AMC zombie series, now sharing an Instagram photo of the prop. See that beneath.

Walking Dead director Greg Nicotero previously said of Depp’s sort-of cameo: “One of the… heads, I don’t know if I’m going to get in trouble if I say this, was Johnny Depp. I think we had sculpted an emaciated version of a dummy head for something and we used Johnny Depp’s head as a basis just for a clay sculpt.”


Season six concluded back in April with a cliffhanger ending that saw an unidentified character being beaten to death by newly introduced character Negan, played by Jeffrey Dean Morgan.

It has been confirmed that The Walking Dead season seven will premiere internationally on October 24 after being launched on AMC in the US a day earlier on October 23.
