During Season 3 of The Walking Dead, The Governor often proved to be more terrifying than the zombie threat. While Season 4 has refocused on the zombie threat as well as introducing a new threat of disease, The Governor appears to be on his way back to prison to terrorize Rick and his group once again.
To promote his return to The Walking Dead, David Morrissey, who plays The Governor, appeared on The Ellen DeGeneres Show. Ellen wound up turning the tables on The Governor and actually giving him a good scare for a change. Ellen asked Morrissey if he ever got scared on the show with all the zombies around. Morrissey explained that he didn't get scared while filming the show because he reads the script and knows what to expect. Morrissey pointed out that it was the unexpected things that tended to scare him.
As Morrissey talked, Ellen had someone dressed up in a monster mask sneak up behind Morrissey and suddenly pop around and growl in his face. Needless to say, The Governor appeared to be scared by the sudden surprise. Check out the full video of the incident below.
The Walking Dead airs on Sunday nights at 9 PM ET on AMC.
