Then Is Now Episode 55 – Judith O’Dea

The star of the original Night of the Living Dead, Judith O’Dea, joins us today as we dive into her career! The film, of course, is the first of the modern zombie films, in which zombies are the dead who return to life as flesh eating ghouls. Judith has become an iconic figure and a living legend, having played the character, Barbara, in the film, and will be honored for generations to come!

But Judith is more than just an actress from Night of the Living Dead! She has continued to act after the film to this day, and has helped thousands of people learn to present and train others through her company, O’Dea Communications!

Join us for a fun and fascinating interview with horror icon, Judith O’Dea!
