Ya’ll Clean Up Nicely! What The Stars Of “The Walking Dead” Look Like Away From The Apocalypse

March 11, 2014 ‐ By

There’s no escaping the zombies and depressing setting of life during the apocalypse on The Walking Dead. But when our favorite characters aren’t doused in dirt, zombie blood and guts, they’re actually quite wonderful looking people. Just as we did a “They Clean Up Nice” for Orange Is The New Black, we thought we’d do the same for the cast of The Walking Dead. Enjoy!



Danai Gurira/Michonne

While the loc-wearing, Katana sword yielding Michonne doesn’t really crack a smile on the show, on the red carpets, Danai Gurira can’t help but flash her pearly whites. The 36-year-old Zimbabwean-American actress is absolutely stunning.

    Danai looks gorgeous in that pink dress! Everything about her is perfect, body, face everything. I have a hard time watching her show, I can’t take the gore and zombies. I did see her in Reckless City and Mother of George and she was fantastic.

  • Ashley

    Sonequa absolutely do not wear wigs. She wears her natural hair & it is gorgeous. Trust me, I know

  • Ayonna Johnson

    I tune in weekly, it a must see for me. I watched Talking Dead last Sunday when Sonequa was on the show and every time the camera would look to her I kept thinking she looks like some other actress or model. Now that I saw this pic of her I think her and Yaya Dacosta of ANTM favor each other.

    • xxdiscoxxheaven

      She also looks a bit like a younger Angela Bassett.

    • chanela

      i was dying inside every time i saw her on screen. that damn widow’s peak has to go.

  • Darling

    Of course there can be more than one, but I always wondered why Lupita and not Danai? Her body is sick!!!! And she can dress.

  • kaa

    Love the show, I always try to eat early on Sunday because it’s so bloody. The episode with walker in the well that split in half when they were pulling out of well made me throw up.

  • Samantha

    Some of them look the same before & after

    • Charla

      Yes, all of them look the same to me lol. The only thing that catches me off guard is their natural accents which are different than the ones on the show.

  • TC

    Darryl Dixon here is one of your lady fans right here. I’ve always been a fan of Norman Reedus since Boondock Saints, but is it weird that I prefer the dirty version? LOL
    BTW… Danai is KILLING IT!!

    • LovAsia

      lol its true!!!

  • LovAsia

    OMG my fav… yea i like Darrel better dirty

    • CAliQueen

      Lol yes Daryl does look like he’s more in his element when he is dirty.
