Walking Dead Spinoff Promo Sends Harry Potter Actor Running For His Life

This just in: Los Angeles-based zombies are apparently really fast — at least judging by this new Fear the Walking Dead promo.

In the above clip, co-star Frank Dillane (Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince‘s Tom Riddle) is seen evading a (presumably) undead predator at a speed somewhat disproportionate to the slower-moving, Atlanta-based Walkers from The Walking Dead.

In a recent interview with TVLine, Fear showrunner Dave Erickson hinted that the prequel aspect of the series means “we’re not dealing with the level of decay” as many of the zombies on TWD, therefore, “I do think there’s a possibility for greater strength. So some of those scenes may be more physical.”

Watch the teaser above and then hit the comments with your snappy judgements!

  1. It’s because they’re California zombies. They’re in better shape and more fit.

    Michael, I’m usually a big fan of your writing but … this was really poor. What about the promo would lead you to believe that the zombies are fast? You don’t even see them. He’s not being chased as much as just running away??? Did you think this would get more page views??

    His girlfriend’s dad walked in on them fooling around. That explains the running the woman’s shirt.

    I don’t know why he’s so worried. The horcruxes he’s got should keep him from dying.

  5. AngelWasHere says:

    Omg that shirt! Just no. But hey is this show going run at the same time as the original TWD?

  6. Aimee says:

    I don’t care how slow zombies are. If I saw one in real life I would run away as fast as I possibly could. That being said, who says he is running from a zombie? There are plenty of evil people who aren’t zombies in The Walking Dead and I’m sure there will be in this show too.
