I was watching Talking Dead tonight and knew there were a few actors on the show that were British but I never realized how many there are! Almost like we Americans aren’t good enough to play our own people. Or maybe we just don’t have a large group of actors that know how to kick some butt in a zombie situation. Here’s a list of actors on the show who are from the other side of the pond.
