An actor who plays a priest on The Walking Dead is facing drink-driving and drug charges after police say he was snared driving at 107mph.

Police say 46-year-old Seth Gilliam was stopped shortly after 2am local time on Sunday in the Peachtree City area of Georgia, not far from the set where much of the TV show is filmed in nearby Senoia.

A police report says Gilliam told the officer he had drunk three beers and a shot of alcohol. A marijuana joint was found inside the vehicle, police added.

He faces speeding, reckless driving, drug possession and drink-driving charges.
