Nordhoff and Frazier, better known as the “Walker Stalkers” are famous for making a trip last fall from Nashville to Georgia to visit the set of the AMC show. The two friends are neighbors in Nashville, they follow a ritual of getting together every Sunday in Frazier’s basement to watch the zombie series. The duo came up with the idea of holding the convention in April this year.
