The Walking Dead has become a monster hit on AMC.  The show that brings us zombies on a weekly basis, has people glued to their television every Sunday night to see what will happen next! We recently spoke to actress Meagan Good who confessed that The Walking Dead was amongst her guilty pleasures!  Fans of the comic book, have an idea of what’s to come, but if you’ve never read the comic book, you were as shocked and pleasantly surprised at the appearance of Michonne, the bad A** warrior with dreads that appeared at the end of the finale of season 2.

Cherise Nicole (CNikky) and our associates EURweb spoke to Danai Gurira, the fierce actress that plays Michonne, during the Essence Black Women In Hollywood Luncheon.  She talked to us about how she identifies with her character and what we can expect to see on the next few episodes.


Can you give us an idea as to what will happen next on the show:

“Well, the gauntlet has been thrown.  It’s just kinda like, now it’s on! Like there’s no like o.k. let’s wait and see..he’s really declared war.  He has absolutely declared war.  So now it’s a question of Rick and how he responds.  But really, it’s been thrown and there’s no steppin’ back.”

We want to see you kill the Governor!

“I almost did. My girl stepped in, messed it up.  Otherwise, ya know it would’ve been a wrap.”

We cheered when you sliced up the little dead girl (Governor’s daughter):

“It was a zombie now.  Folks were like.. how could you kill the little girl?  I was like, c’mon now, she was dead.  She shouldv’e been laid to rest, had a nice little tombstone and some flowers. What she doing locked in a cage with a strait jacket.  It’s wrong, it’s wrong.”

Hilarious!  The Walking Dead Airs Sunday Nights At 10pm on AMC!!
