By day, they manage everything from getting smoothies from A to
B, keeping the office ship shape, answering the bananaphone and
doing IT stuff.
But by night (and every other weekend), they rise up, cast their
day jobs to one side and dance like the living dead.
If the living dead had a thing for talc, ripped lycra and mixed
Please say hello to the Zombie All Stars
Eddie - Office
Superman (and self proclaimed Head of Security)
Day-to-day job: Manning the grassy van fleet,
filling the fridge, fixing all problems when Ian the Builder isn't
about, refilling the fridge, lifting lots of heavy stuff, using a
drill and sporting an array of day glo flat caps.
Zombie role: Werewolf and zombie dancer in
Troop Camp. Someone has since stolen said mask. He'd like it back
please. No questions asked.
Interesting fact: Eddie has just won the
innocent scholarship to take acting lessons in New York. In
anticipation of hitting the big time, he very kindly signed his
autograph for you to add to your collection.
Print out, save and then whack on eBay in five year's time.
Ruth - Commercial
Day-to-day job: Ruth describes her day job as
'Working with the sales team to make sure all their chat actually
happens'. Or getting the right smoothies get to the right place at
the right time.
Zombie role: The receptionist and lead dancer
in Troop Literally
Interesting fact: Ruth had planned to bury her
costume for that authentic zombie look. Told everyone she'd buried
it in fact. Went
out in the newsletter and everything. Turns out after all, she
forgot to bury her dress. Thankfully, talc disguises a multitude of
hastily purchased sins.
John T - Commercial
Day-to-day job: In his own words, John 'looks
after' the high street. Meaning where ever you see one of our
drinks in a high street shop, you'll have John's silver tongued
sales patter to thank.
Zombie role: Zombie Dancer #8 in Troop Smash.
Lightest on his feet of entire cast (see below)
Interesting fact: Despite being a lifter of big
weights and lover of all things sporty, John won the award for
Ponciest Dancing Shoes this side of Fame, chasséeing up in slip on
Mark G - Infrastructures
Day-to-day job: Something to do with networks
and servers. Something to do with going into a big cupboard under
the stairs that no one else is allowed in.
Zombie role: Boardroom zombie, gym zombie and
integral member of Troop Literally
Interesting fact: Mark knew his calling from an
early age. Sadly his fashion forward jumpers and trendy bowl cut
weren't enough to cut it at fashion college. So he plumped for a
career in IT instead.
Check out that keys on that board.
Jim Anderson - Head of
Day-to-day job: In his day job which is "more
than just I.T", Jim and his team are in charge of changing the
difficult stuff in Fruit Towers. Explains alot really.
Zombie role: Casting director, location scout,
producer, dance teacher, screen writer, the main man (Pictured
below: Front of shot, slightly green, tight red jeans)
Interesting fact #1: Jim reckons he spent 10 hours
learning the dance. That's not taking into account time spent
practicing in meetings or whilst standing behind people's desks.
Just imagine. All that gyrating, all that hee hee, going on right
behind your chair when all you'd ask for was an Excel formula.
Interesting fact #2: The hardest bit of the
dance to get right was this sequence:
Right hip, right hip, right hip, in,
out, left hip, left hip.
He's got it nailed now. After all that back-of-chair
So now you've met some of the cast, gleaned their vital stats
and had a sneak peak of the choreography (right hip, right hip,
right hip etc), why not check them out in action right here?
