‘Army of the Dead’ Zombie King and Queen are hot in real life
Zack Snyder’s latest film, Army of the dead, is all that any action movie lover can talk about right now – and it’s not hard to see why. The so-called “Zombie Heist Movie” follows a group of mercenaries as they venture into a Las Vegas quarantine area to retrieve a $ 200 million safe. The trap? The quarantine zone is full of a spooky zombie army that takes absolutely no prisoners.
The ruthless undead are ruled by a king, Zeus, and his queen, who are absolutely terrifying in the film. But the actors behind the layers of makeup couldn’t be more stunning.
“It took a lot of prosthetics and makeup to make this horrible couple so terrifying,” describes a recent Netflix YouTube video. “But beneath their decaying exteriors, the actors portraying Zeus and the Queen are actually quite gorgeous.”
Zeus is played by actor and stuntman Richard Cetrone, who is no stranger to Zack Snyder films. In fact, according to Netflix, he’s played a role in every live-action movie Snyder has made. Notably, he was Ben Affleck’s stunt double in Batman vs. Superman: Dawn of Justice and Justice League. He has also been a stunt performer in several Marvel films including Iron Man, Thor, and Captain America: Civil War. Not only that, but he worked on it Buffy the vampire slayer, Sleepy hollow, and The Mandalorian. Not bad.
The Queen, meanwhile, is represented by Athena Perample, who has extensive training in dance and gymnastics that is evident in her royal role. You might not expect this from the terrible Queen of the Monsters, but Perample’s first notable onscreen role was to Joy. She was also previously a dancer for the Los Angeles Clippers, if you can believe it. Perample has also performed stunts on several popular TV series including Legion, Euphoria, and Animal Kingdom. Most recently, she was a stunt double for Kat Dennings and Kathryn Hahn in the Marvel TV series. WandaVision.
Now, that certainly gives you a different perspective on the chilling undead royalty.
