Wow, a lot of The Walking Dead April birthdays…here’s another. Today, Jeffrey Demunn is turning 71 years young!
Born in Buffalo, New York in 1947, Jeffrey is an accomplished film, television and stage actor who is best known for his role as Dale Horvath on AMC’s The Walking Dead. The character of Dale was killed off towards the end of the show’s second season by a walker that probably never would have gotten put of the mud he was stuck had it not been for Carl agitating it. #StayInTheHouseCarl
