    "The Walking Dead" Cast's Zombie Survival Kits Are Totally Badass

    Andrew Lincoln, Norman Reedus, Steven Yeun, and Danai Gurira are bringing a lot of chocolate, Prince albums, and cats.

    BuzzFeed sat down with the stars of The Walking Dead and asked, "What would absolutely have to bring in the zombie apocalypse?"


    Here's what you'd find in their survival kits:

    Andrew Lincoln (Rick Grimes)

    "Someone on set the other day said, ‘Why doesn’t anyone have that sharp chain mail?' You know, the thick stuff that goes on your arms? So I’m going to steal that," Lincoln says. He'd also bring a lighter, weapons, a blow-up airplane neck pillow, The First Forty Nine Stories by Ernest Hemingway, Jack London's Call of the Wild, a solar-powered iPod with the collected works of Prince, and a boat with plenty of space for his family.

    He then adds, "I think I’d be useless, frankly, in a zombie apocalypse.”

    Danai Gurira (Michonne)

    "I would take a katana," Gurira says with a smile. She'd also bring mouthwash, underwear, jeans, sweaters, a toothbrush, her bible, and a phone. "I’d take my phone just in case," she says, "with the charger. You never know when things will come back!"

    Steven Yeun (Glenn Rhee)

    Yeun says he'd bring an axe, a bat, The Alchemist by Paulo Coelho, matches to start a fire, water, a camera, his guitar, and four boxes of Slim Jims, because “I don’t think they can go bad, and it’s as close to meat as possible."

    Norman Reedus (Daryl Dixon)

    Reedus says he'd bring chocolate bars, South Park episodes, and a bottle of Jack. He also says, "I’d shove my cat in the bag. That’s pretty much it. That’s what I live off of already."

    The Walking Dead Season 4 premieres this Sunday, Oct. 13 at 9 p.m. ET/8 p.m. CT on AMC.
