Jodie Turner-Smith, a British actress and model, believes a zombie apocalypse is imminent.
The 36-year-old actress has an “irrational fear” of the undead and believes that the skills she learns as an actor will come in useful when the day comes.
Speaking to Total Film she said:
“I have an irrational fear of zombies. I think that the zombie apocalypse is coming, so I like to cultivate skills that will prepare me for the zombie apocalypse.
“So far, I’ve only learned to shoot guns.
“You’ve got to be able to do head shots and you’ve got to double tap.”
“I don’t think knowing how to stand on a mark is going to help me that much.”
Jodie made her feature film debut in The Neon Demon and has subsequently appeared in Queen & Slim, After Yang, and White Noise. She’s also renowned for her turns on TNT’s The Last Ship and Syfy’s Nightflyers.
Jodie, who has a two-year-old daughter Janie with husband Joshua Jackson, likes to “celebrate herself” when she wraps filming and believes that the “best gift” she can receive is a vacation. She said, “I always like to give myself a gift after every shoot because I think it’s important to celebrate myself
“I keep on taking it to the next level every time with what I do for myself. I love a holiday after I wrap. I think that’s the best gift I can give myself, just to unplug. My husband and I went to GoldenEye (in Jamaica) and had a really amazing, amazing time.”
Though Jodie wishes she had stolen more from her film sets, she admitted she “always” takes the socks and underwear she wears during filming because she can’t understand why anyone would want them back. She said, “It took me a while to realize that I should steal things.”
Smith last worked on The Independent, a 2022 American political film directed by Amy Rice and written by Evan Parter. She starred alongside Brian Cox, Luke Kirby, Stephen Lang, Ann Dowd, and John Cena. The film was released on streaming by Peacock on November 2, 2022.
