Blink and you would have missed it!  Actor Johnny Depp made a brief cameo in the latest episode of AMC’s The Walking Dead, at least his head did anyway! In fact, Depp was probably not even aware that his likeness was used on screen as the show’s visual effects designer and episode director Greg Nicotero revealed to Entertainment Weekly that when they were searching for a new head to sculpt for a scene in the episode, they ended up using Depp’s as a mold to work on.

The molded head that was inspired by Johnny Depp can be seen all the way to the right and Nicotero did not reveal whether or not anyone told Depp that his molded head had actually made it into the episode. Being that Depp got his start in horror, we can say it is definitely an appropriate homage.

Any guesses about the other two heads? Nicotero confirmed that the one was crafted from his own head and the other is a mystery man. Fun fact: The head that the group ultimately decides to pass off as Hilltop leader Gregory’s is actually Nicotero’s mold.

The next all new episode of AMC’s The Walking Dead will air on Sunday, March 13 at 9:00pm ET/PT
