How do you pull off a convincing tiger attack on television? Not with a real tiger, that’s for sure. In The Walking Dead‘s Season 7 finale, Ezekiel’s pet tiger Shiva went into full attack mode. The show created the effect by having a stunt man leap onto the actor playing Shiva’s unfortunate victim.
After the finale, actor Chandler Riggs tweeted a photo from filming the episode, and it looks…well, different.
AMC shared a behind-the-scene video of the actor (Scott Hunter) jumping off a trampoline to get the air and attack like a real tiger.
