‘The Walking Dead’ Star Christian Serratos Once Killed Her Real-Life Boyfriend on the Show

New Politics singer David Boyd was cameoed as one of Rosita’s zombie victims

How many people can say they’ve killed their zombie boyfriend? “The Walking Dead” star Christian Serratos can.

In an interview with Entertainment Weekly, the actress, who stars as Rosita on the AMC drama, revealed that her real-life boyfriend, New Politics singer David Boyd, once cameoed as one of her walker victims. In a scene from the Season 7 episode “The Other Side,” Boyd appears as a walker who comes after Rosita and Sasha and gets stabbed in the head for his trouble.

“I was like, well if we’re going to have him on the show, I need to kill him,” Serratos told EW. “So he was a walker in the episode with me and Sonequa, and I killed him.”

Boyd apparently has the perfect face to be a zombie, so Serratos and executive producer Greg Nicotero conspired to have him make an appearance. “It’s funny because he looks like a f–ing walker,” she said. “He has just the perfect face for the walker makeup. Like, there are very specific requirements to be a walker, and David had all those requirements, so yeah, he was a walker.”

“We got some really adorable photos after that scene,” she said. “He was really great and I was glad that I was the one to do it.”
