Zombies have enjoyed a meteoric rise in popular culture for the past few years now, which is ironic given their slow-moving, lugubrious pace. Thanks to shows like The Walking Dead and The Returned and movies such as World War Z, zombies are hot. This, again, is quite counterintuitive, because the skulking carcasses we see on the screen are anything but. The tides of zombie lore are changing, though, and the undead are now getting reanimated with feelings and, well, life. Nowhere is that more evident than in The CW’s new iZombie, starring Rose McIver.

Based on a comic book series launched in 2010, iZombie was adapted for television by Rob Thomas and Diane Ruggiero-Wright. Rose McIver stars as Olivia “Liv” Moore (get it?), a promising medical student with a loving fiancé whose life gets turned upside-down when she attends a party and wakes up a zombie. She resorts to a job at the Seattle morgue to satisfy her urge for brains, and soon discovers that she takes on the memories and personality traits of the dead people whose brains she eats, which allows her to act as the Seattle PD’s psychic consultant.

It runs the risk of being over-the-top and campy, but in the hands of the team behind Veronica Mars, it isn’t just a show about zombies. It’s a story of resilience and reinvention, albeit with an occasional venture into “full zombie mode.” What’s that? We spoke to McIver, a New Zealand native with the charming accent to prove it, to find out.


My name is Stéphanie - creator, webmaster and social medias manager of The Rose McIver Fansite (known as Rose McIver Source). I have been a french fan of Rose since a decade. Way back in 2013, I noticed there were no French or English website supporting her projects or promoting her amazing work – that's why I decided to create this fansite, in English to reach a larger audience. I started following Rose in my early twenties, here I am in my thirties, even more enthusiastic to share everything related to her career.​ I had the opportunity to meet Rose three times. In May 2017, at the 'Fairy Tales 5' con in Paris. In February 2020, virtually during "Empire's Virtual Hangout 4". In May 2023, I went to Germany to meet Rose again.
