WALKING DEAD

He’s been a Dalek, a Cyberman, a surgeon – now he’s a walking corpse! We ask Jon Davey about the glamour of monster acting…

Hello Jon! So you played one of the ‘Space Zombies’ in Oxygen…

“I think they’re just called corpses.”

Right, yes. Was this the first time you’ve had to play a moving dead body?

“Yeah, I’ve been a dead body a few times before, but never one that’s been moving as such! Shall I quickly run you through what we did? At the time, there were roughly about 15 of us who had a rehearsal day with Ailsa Berk, the choreographer, and the movement was fairly straightforward. Obviously, we were being dead bodies, and we were in space suits that were actually quite big and bulky – and the space suits themselves were what was actually moving us along. So, movement-wise we had to remember that we were as relaxed as possible – because we were just corpses, and the movement was obviously controlled by the suit itself.”
