Garrett Immel

Garrett Immel moved to L.A. in 1985 (at age 17) with dreams of movies and creatures in his heart. Encouragement from make-up great William Tuttle gave him the confidence to look for work in make-up labs, which led to sculpting for Craig Reardon. By his senior year he was sculpting full-time at a theme park company. After college, his first movie as an on-set make-up artist was Army of Darkness, where he met his longtime employers, friends and therapists Howard Berger and Greg Nicotero. The fruitful 27-year relationships have led to his involvement on many wonderful projects, including seven great years on The Walking Dead and, most recently, working with Berger on The Orville.
