Occupational hazard of working with zombies: “I always drive home with fake blood on my hands,” Lauren Cohan, the 32-year-old U.K.-raised star of AMC’s The Walking Dead (Sundays, 9 P.M.) laments to Us Weekly. “And it ends up on my bag as well.” What stays safe inside her Clare Vivier tote?

Smooth Operator
“I use Clarins hand cream. It smells good and makes me nostalgic. My first job was working in one of their shops, selling lotion to old ladies.”

The Right Note
“I’m learning to play the harmonica, so I have CDs of blues songs by Roy Orbison and Neil Young to help me practice. On breaks from shooting, we all sit around and play music. We don’t have a band yet, but that’s coming, I’m sure.”

“It’s kind of silly, but I carry lucky sticks. My mom finds me odd-shaped twigs to take with me as tokens of good luck and protection.”
