Danai Gurira Talks Playing Michonne in The Walking Dead Season 3
We're still all buzzing about the appearance of Michonne, who will be played by Danai Gurira, at the end of "The Walking Dead" Season Two finale. Read on for an idea of what to expect from her...
The Hollywood Reporter caught up with Gurira recently to talk about the character:
"I'm going to develop [the character] with [showrunner] Glen Mazzara and the whole creative team. They have their own take on the source material. I'm going to be meeting with them next week to get an understanding of what their take is and how she grows and develops. I'll find out the answer to that in the coming weeks in terms of exactly how she will map out with what she is in the books vs. what she will be on the screen."
Gurira continues, "I was trying to really investigate a character and allow her to have as much dimension as possible and crack it open even more. What you see through the writing and vision of the creator, you add to it by bringing your full humanity and by really delving into the character's background and their motives and fears, all those things can make a multi-dimensional character come to life. That's how I've been trained from the beginning and how I've created characters in the past on the stage or through my playwriting. I plan to bring all of that to the table to allow Michonne to be as rich and complex as possible. I'm excited to bring her to life as someone who really has a lot of life and a lot of complexity."
