People We Like: Larry Mainland
We spent the whole day at RobCon and passed by The Walking Dead zombie actor Larry Mainland, but he was always either busy talking with fans or signing autographs. And when he wasn’t busy, we were outside busy taking pictures with Ecto. So were we ever surprised when we went to eat dinner that evening when Larry was eating just a few tables from us!
Larry stopped by and said, “Oh, so the Ghostbusters were too good to talk to a zombie today?” to which we responded, “Well, the zombie was so busy signing autographs.” We both finished our meals and then got pictures with our waitress and a few other members of the restaurant staff, then it was off to the parking lot to check out Ecto! Larry and his family got a big kick out of the car. They actually hadn’t got out to see it since they had been inside all day at their table. So we gave Larry the grand tour of Ecto. And before it was all over, Larry gave us an autographed picture.
We, of course, returned the favor. Thanks, Larry! It was awesome to meet you and we look forward to seeing you at future conventions!
