After a decade on the air, The Walking Dead has already delivered to its viewers all kinds of emotions. In accordance with the episodes of this program, survival in the post-apocalyptic world is very demanding and requires overcoming levels of disgusting rash. Well, a few days ago, we conducted an online #QuarantineWatchParty of in which they saw the first two episodes of TWD. During this virtual event, the actor colombiano Juan Gabriel Pareja (who interpreted for Morales in that program AMC) confessed that from his Twitter so disgusted that he felt during the filming of a scene from episode two, entitled “Guts“(Guts).

In this chapter, Rick is trapped inside a supply store in Atlanta together with the group of survivors that included Glenn (Steven Yeun), Moral (Pair), T-Dog (IronE Singleton), Jacqui (Jeryl Prescott) and Andrea (Laurie Holden). The group comes to the conclusion that to escape from zombies that were waiting outside, they needed to disguise their body odors. Then, Rick and Morales have to cut out a walker in pieces and covered with his blood and his guts to get out without being identified as human. On that sequence, John Gabriel scored:

“This scene scared me completely and I stirred the stomach. The transfer of the axe was not planned and we improvised in the moment… the helmet didn’t fit well… in fact I dropped it…”

In spite of these technical drawbacks, a Couple commented that it was an episode epic that allowed him to orient to work with the cast in scenes later: “At that time, was fairly new on the scene, so I tried to balance the experience and I made sure to be doing everything that had to do, but, at the same time, I was a bit dazzled and overwhelmed by the presence of so many actors, stars with which we were working, so that was definitely an interesting time.”

Without a doubt, many viewers will match with Juan Gabriel in that it was a sequence fairly grotesque and hard to see, but full of emotion and suspense, because the disgusting strategy of Rick and company could fail and end up in a massacre. The most recent thing that we had reported on TWD it was the delay in the post-production of the end of its tenth season due to the current pandemic coronavirus (COVID-19).
