For TWD star Jeffrey Dean Morgan, The Walking Dead has become a family affair. Hilarie Burton, Morgan’s partner, made an appearance in TWD season 10. Now his son, Augustus Dean Morgan will be making an appearance in TWD season 11. For the talented actor, he couldn’t be happier. Morgan worked on walking dead for the past five years, and this is the first time he’ll have his whole family on the set of the AMC series.
So far, no word from Augustus Dean Morgan on his acting debut. On the other hand, Morgan is more than thrilled to talk about his son as an actor on the AMC show. It’s not a big role, but it’s a role that’s sure to scare.
Jeffrey Dean Morgan Son Makes His Debut As A Walker
When his partner of 10 years, Hilarie Burton, made an appearance on season 10 of TWD, fans were excited. The talented actress portrayed his wife in the 2021 episode “Here’s Negan.” Now, 11-year-old Gus will work alongside his father and take on a role everyone knows well, the Walker.
Interestingly, Morgan revealed on The Late Late Show with James Corden that their first take at turning him into a zombie didn’t end as well as they had hoped.
The actor stated, “Last time we did kind of any zombie makeup on him, he looked at his reflection in the mirror and passed out. That just dawned on me today.”
Morgan added that Gus has overcome that initial shock (years ago). Now, he is extremely excited to be part of the cast. His acting role won’t take up too much screen time. However, that’s nothing to worry about, his son is pumped for the opportunity.
Augustus Dean Morgan Will Appear In Episode Five of Season 11
The proud father revealed Gus will make his debut in episode five of The Walking Dead season 11. He shared a teaser photo of Gus on social media in full zombie makeup, appearing as gnarly as any walker in the TWD series could ever look. Aside from being cast as a walker, there’s no word if he’ll cross paths with Daryl and Carol.
Jeffrey wrote, “My kid. Just a peek… as a dad, I have to say, I’d be hard-pressed to remember a time I’ve been more proud of this dude. Can’t wait for y’all to see him in action.” Burton added, “I love my apocalyptic dudes!”
Morgan and Burton also have a 3-year-old daughter, George Virginia Morgan. The AMC series is currently filming in Georgia. It will run until March of 2022. Are you excited to see the Morgan family in action on TWD? Share your thoughts in the comments!
