Consider yourself a bit of a Walking Dead fan? Look no further than Sydney and Melbourne’s Walker Stalker conventions!

UPDATE: Scott Wilson (Hershel) has just been added to the Melbourne line-up. See original post below.

The country’s first ever such events are hitting Sydney and Melbourne next month, and will bring stars of the undead show to Australia to hang out with fans.

And they’re no stars to bite an ear at, either. Greg Nicotero – director, producer, and SFX creator on the show – is making the trip, as well as Steven Ogg (Simon), Tyler James Williams (Noah), Khary Payton (Ezekiel), Michael Kudlitz (Abraham), Ross Marquand (Aaron), and Tom Payne (Jesus).

But wait – there’s more. If you’re in Sydney, you’ll get the chance to hang with Chandler Riggs (Carrrrrrrlllllllll) and Jeffrey Dean Morgan (Negan), and those in Melbourne will find the company of Seth Gilliam (Father Gabriel) and Michael Rooker (Merle). Why not go to both!?

Of course, when you aren’t busy getting pics and autographs with your favourite stars, there’ll be free Q&A panels, a Sanctuary-themed compound full of cool stuff, a zombie survival area for the brave souls out there, some shops, roaming zombies and cosplayers – not to mention a bunch of talented artists and tattooists to check out.

Anyway, here’s the full list of attendees. Tickets are on sale now – don’t miss out! If you see us shuffling around out there, don’t worry; we’re not tainted meat, we just haven’t had our coffee yet.
