“The Walking Dead” was a huge hit at Comic Con 2012 this year, and with season 3 on its way, fan excitement is building. In the new season we see the new character of Michonne as well as the introduction of the Governor.
Danai Gurira, the actress who plays Michonne, opened up about her character as well as the work that goes along with it.
“Initially, learning the sword was challenging,” she told Vulture at Comic-Con this weekend. “I started to take natural vitamins, tart cherry pills. Very good for the joints and the muscles. I didn’t know if I was going to be able to do what Michonne has to do in 100 degree heat, but with those pills, I’m fine.”
Whatever Danai is doing, worked. Executive producer, Gale Ann Hurd expressed how impressed she was with Danai’s work.
“Michonne kicks ass with a katanna sword,” she said. “The intensity level is incredible, we’ve got our cast inoculated now, the new people realize just what they’re in for and the level that we expect, and they’ve become just as passionate about ‘The Walking Dead’ as we all are.”
