“The Walking Dead” cast may be covered in blood, dirt, and guts while fending off zombie herds in the apocalypse, but in real life they clean up pretty well.
Some of the cast members wear wigs and prosthetics that would make them look nearly recognisable off of the Atlanta, Georgia, set.
Keep reading to see how the cast of the AMC series looks when they’re not fighting for their lives.
Rick Grimes is constantly covered in blood, zombie guts, and is looking worse for the wear in the zombie apocalypse.
Michonne recently began a relationship with Rick, her long-time partner-in-crime, to the delight of many fans.
Rick's son Carl recently lost his eye from a rogue bullet. On the show, he can almost always be seen wearing his dad's sheriff's hat.
The last time we saw Enid, Carl locked her in a closet to prevent her from coming on the trip to the Hilltop. Looking back on it now, that was probably a good idea.
Actress Katelyn Nacon looks more chic in real life, but you may not have realised she was in Adult Swim's viral spoof 'Too Many Cooks.'
Abraham was the wise-cracking, strong arm of the group before Negan took him out in the season seven premiere.
Michael Cudlitz dyed his hair bright red to bring the comic-book character to life. He looks a bit different clean shaven.
Josh McDermitt grew his hair out for the show too. His hair was a lot shorter when he was first cast.
It's not clear how Sasha will deal with the fallout of losing her newly-kindled romance with Abraham so soon.
Before Abraham's unexpected death, Rosita was trying to move past the fact that her old flame moved on with Sasha.
Negan, the mysterious leader of the Saviors, is the show's newest villain who loves to hear himself talk and demonstrates his warped brand of justice with his beloved barbed-wired bat Lucille.
Jeffrey Dean Morgan, known for his roles on 'The Good Wife' and 'Grey's Anatomy,' couldn't wait to audition for the role. He's known about the foul-mouthed villain for some time.
Fan favourite Daryl was just kidnapped by Negan and the Saviors so things aren't looking too good for him.
Actor Norman Reedus ditches the bad boy look off set, but keeps his shaggy hair long when he's not filming. It wasn't always that way. Reedus launched his career as a Prada model years ago.
A newly pregnant Maggie Green just cut off most of her hair before watching her husband killed by Negan.
Maggie's husband Glenn became one of Negan's victims in the season seven premiere after an outburst from Daryl.
The apocalypse hasn't worn off on Steven Yeun much, but he can usually be seen wearing glasses off set.
Khary Payton just joined the cast as King Ezekiel, the leader of a new community called the Kingdom.
Payton, who's known for doing voiceover work on cartoon series like 'Teen Titans,' shaved his head for the part.
Morgan was MIA for several seasons of the show, but reunited with Rick at the end of season five. He's now at the Kingdom getting acquainted with the new community.
Carol was injured in the season five finale before being found and treated at the Kingdom. It now looks like King Ezekiel has her in his sights.
Actress Alana Masterson had to hide her pregnancy much of last season before giving birth to a daughter last November.
The last time we saw Heath he was helping to kill a bunch of Saviors. He's presumably hanging out at Alexandria now.
You may recognise actor Corey Hawkins without the long locks. He played Dr. Dre in 2015's breakout film 'Straight Outta Compton.'
Paul is better known on the show and comic series as Jesus for his uncanny resemblance to the religious figure.
Father Gabriel has started to come into his own, earning Rick and the group's trust. When the group left for the Hilltop, he was left in charge of Alexandria and to look over Rick's daughter, Judith.
