How to be a Zombie

Beth Accomando runs down the top ten things she learned about being a zombie. I like this one:

Lesson number five: Number five is the corollary to lesson four, which is that you have to be very precise when requesting blood on the set, because it isn't all created equal.

In addition to mouth blood, there's fresh scab, thick blood, runny blood, fresh blood, old blood ... you get the idea. Furthermore, blood left out in the sun is no fun to put in your mouth.

And wounds — the fake kind — get ripe in the sun, which makes the blood too drippy.

But, this is a gem:

Lesson number nine: Zombie children start to look better and more in character at the end of the day when they are genuinely bored to death.
