—Actor Zombie's splash screen
Actor Zombie is a Theater Zombie in Plants vs. Zombies 3, which you first encounter at Floor 5 of Devour Tower. When defeated, he does a monologue for 10 seconds. During that time, he will absorb all damage done to him until the 10 seconds pass. This allows zombies behind him to move further without taking damage.
Actor Zombie is based on an actor, a person who plays a role in a movie or a play. His appearance is based on William Shakespeare, a well-known 16th-century poet and playwright. The skull he is holding is a reference to the quote "Alas, poor Yorick!" from Hamlet, one of the plays written by Shakespeare.
Actor Zombie can be quite annoying, as his ability to block attacks lets other zombies behind him proceed without taking damage. Piercing or chain shot plants like Pine Needler , Night Cap and Lightning Reed can ignore Actor Zombie's ability, making them effective responses.
- The skull Actor Zombie holds resembles the Skeleton Zombie's head.
