If you want to look good after the zombie apocalypse ... you probably can't. So says "The Walking Dead" star Lauren Cohan in this new behind-the-scenes clip from AMC.

"I think beyond basic shaving and hair-cutting, it's probably all a bit of a moot point," Cohan says.

It's a TV show, so Cohan and her co-stars are a little more put together than the average survivor might be. But the show doesn't skimp on the grit and grime either. Cohan describes the dirtying-up process by the show's makeup team this way: "It's grease and it's blood and it's dirt, and then it's zombie gunk, and sometimes it's green, putrid, kind of rotted brain. That all gets sealed with a lovely coat of sunscreen."

All that looks great on camera, but Cohan says it can make for some awkward moments at Target.

"The Walking Dead" airs at 9 p.m. ET Sunday on AMC.
