Is this NFL running back set to make his acting debut in the “The Walking Dead?” The Pittsburgh Steelers player DeAngelo Williams took his wedding to a new level by doing a “Walking Dead.”
There were zombies filled in the hall at the Peabody in Memphis, Tennessee. When DeAngelo Williams and his bride Risalyn walked into the room, they were surrounded by “walkers” from the popular AMC series.
Williams is a huge fan of “The Walking Dead” and had professional makeup artists on hand to transform him. Besides, everyone in his wedding party was also transformed, so that it was fun.
“I’m a huge Walking Dead fan,” Williams, 33, said in a video shot by the ESPN. “I wanted to do engagement photos of us being chased by zombies and we didn’t have time because it was during season and we didn’t have the opportunity, so [my wife, Risalyn] was like, ‘How are you going to pull that off?’” he said.
Raislyn also got into the spirit with the complete makeup. But, she said that DeAngelo Williams had to convince the bridesmaids for becoming zombies, and they had no option but to relent.
Williams’ “Walking Dead” themed wedding gave every one of his guests a chance to laugh and have lots of fun. The player added that it gave them a chance to step outside their “comfort zone and put on our acting skills.”
The small video documentary that Williams shared on his social media shows the couple walking like the dead. Besides, when he kissed each other and posed for pictures, there were a host of zombies to complement them.
For the NFL player, his theme wedding was a dream come true. DeAngelo Williams said that he not only became a “walker” but also a husband of a beautiful wife.
Williams and Raislyn have known each other since college, when they both attended the University of Memphis. Interestingly, their wedding had the blue and gray color scheme of their school, The Commercial Appeal reports.
