AMC's The Walking Dead returns for its eighth season tonight and while the zombie drama is one of the most-watched shows on television.

While main cast members on shows such as HBO's Game of Thrones can earn around half a million dollars per episode the stars of The Walking Dead bring in a far more modest paycheck in comparison.

Melissa McBride is best known for her tough portrayal of fan-favourite Carol Peletier, but the year-old star surprisingly had not one, but two minor roles in popular teen series Dawson's Creek, alongside Hollywood actors James Van Der Beek and Katie Holmes.

While the actress herself was a surprising years-old when she was first chatted up by the high-school student, the scene came about when film geek Dawson decided to try out being a "bad boy" on a jaunt with his best friend Pacey Witter Joshua Jackson. Sporting a 90s-style white logo-embossed T-shirt, Melissa was worlds away from the role that made sure she shot to fame on the AMC zombie horror.

The season five premiere for "The Walking Dead" is fast approaching, and AMC is whetting fans' appetites with a series of atmospheric character images ahead of the show's Oct. Variety has an exclusive first look at the photo for Melissa McBride's Carol Peletier, whose harrowing character arc proved to be one of season four's most compelling — and gut-wrenching — storylines. At San Diego Comic-Con in July, McBride admitted that the hit show has grown even more intense in its fifth year, telling reporters that the episodes she'd filmed thus far were "very physical, non-stop action" installments. The actress also expressed gratitude to the fans and writers for embracing Carol's painful journey, especially the "dark irony" of the bereaved mother having to kill another young girl after losing her own daughter.
