Nicholas Hoult said getting the audience to relate and root for his zombie character in Warm Bodies was an "interesting task" for him. Check out the other details Nicholas revealed in this behind-the-scenes DVD sneak peek! Prior to the release of his Warm Bodies DVD, Nicholas Hoult is giving us the scoop on what it was like to transform into zombie "R."

In this exclusive DVD behind-the-scenes look, the 23-year-old Brit, who stars as the undead character in the film, dished on how he brought his peculiar role to life.

"The idea of this zombie who I had to try to make relatable to an audience and make an audience care about and root for was something I thought was an interesting task for me," Nicholas said. "There was a lot to think about--the movement aspects of it and trying to create how a zombie would talk."

"The first time I ever did it, I'd gone for dinner with Jonathan Levine and we spoke about how tricky it was going to be to get the right balance of Zombie for the role, and then I met with Tony--I went to his house for my casting and my reading and he said 'let's give it a go.'"

And that wasn't all Nicholas had to share about his transformation.

"I had my makeup and my normal clothes and suddenly I was there and tried to become a zombie, and thankfully he didn't laugh at me," Nicholas added. "He was very supportive and encouraging, but, doing it in those circumstances, when you get the makeup and the costume and the environment it's quite easier."

The DVD for Warm Bodies, which also stars Teresa Palmer, is set to hit stores June 4.
