The Walking Dead's season six finale had a very special guest appearance: Tausha Kutcher, Ashton Kutcher's sister!

"She was one of the zombies!" the AMC hit's star Alanna Masterson revealed to E! News at the premiere celebrating the opening of The Wizarding World of Harry Potter theme park at Universal Studios Hollywood.

Masterson, of course, has a long history with the Kutcher family, as her brother Danny Masterson was on That '70s Show with Ashton for eight years, and the co-stars have teamed up once again for The Ranch, their new Netflix comedy.

"Ashton and my brother are on a new show I was there and [Tausha] is a huge fan of The Walking Dead. They all are. I mean, Mila Kunis and Ashton, they all are," Masterson explained of how the cameo came to be. "And she asked if she could be a walker and I said, 'Sure!'"

So how did huge fans Kutcher and wife Mila Kunis feel about that controversial cliffhanger in Sunday's finale, which ended with most of the main characters on the chopping block, thanks to Negan's (Jeffrey Dean Morgan) arrival.

"Pissed. Pissed. Pissed!" Masterson said of their reaction, adding that the couple isn't above trying to get spoilers out of her. "Ashton and Mila sit me down and then they try and grill me...they try and find out, 'So what does this mean?' And of course I don't say anything!

And they weren't the only ones reaching out to her after the finale, with Masterson saying she received a lot of text messages on Sunday night. "I got mostly 'who died' and like 17 question marks from actually a lot of people." They know I'm not going to say anything anyway, so I didn't quite understand why they were texting me. But it was like, 'Who died?! Tell me who died!'"

To hear how Masterson messed with her friends who texted her asking who died, and how she filmed the finale nine months pregnant, watch our interview with her above!

E! News also caught up with executive producer Greg Nicotero—the finale's director—at the WWOHP opening, and he had a message for frustrated fans. (Are you listening, Kutcher and Kunis?!)

"My message to fans is thank you for watching because their passion and their love for the show is what keeps us alive. And to trust us, because I know people feel like, 'Oh, you guys pulled the rug out from under us!'," he said. "People are angry and people are frustrated, and in a couple days, they might be less frustrated. By the time we're ready to back on the air, hopefully they'll be ready to watch again and continue our journey."

And when asked if she was feeling pretty good that her character Tara is one of the only people NOT in jeopardy, Masterson joked, "Or maybe I just never come back and they forget about me!"

Hey, on this show, you never know. 

The Walking Dead returns for season seven this fall on AMC.
