The Walking Dead News: Danai Gurira Talks About Michonne Character, Where She Is Going & Where She Has Been

The normally soft-spoken Danai Gurira opened up about Michonne at a Fan Expo Canada panel this past weekend.

On her sword…
“It was something that I had to get attached to. This is an extension of her power and she found a new identity in this weapon as she stepped into this post apocalyptic world.”

On the appeal of The Walking Dead
“What I connected to was the fact that it felt to me like a war zone. Real. Visceral. One of the plays I researched was about war. The idea that when when everything is gone, who do you become? Where is your humanity going to fall? Who are you going to become? You are not going to be who you are right now…

On her character…
“She felt like one of those chicks who become a very formidable force when she can’t rely on anyone else.”
