“Walking Dead” fans, get ready!Â Here is your first official view of Michonne!
You are welcome…
“Dead” creator and executive producer Robert Kirkman sat down with Entertainment Weekly to talk about the next season, and dove into some great details about Michonne, Danai Gurira, and what we could expect within those prison walls:
Check out the excerpts below, (via Joblo)
On Michonne’s transition from comic to screen:
The essence of the character her personality, her motives, everything that makes Michonne Michonne remains intact from the comics, he said, But like a lot of things on the show, there will be little tweaks and differences here and there. We saw that her introduction is slightly different from how it was in the comic, and her interaction with Andrea is really going to be a really cool addition to the character that I think will get television viewers up to speed, and they’ll get to know her a lot faster than comic book readers did.
On the casting of Danai Gurira in the role:
We looked at a lot of talented people that were really fantastic, but we were waiting for that one spark, that moment where everyone was completely in agreement and completely excited, and we felt like we had found the essence of this fictional character that just randomly appeared in another person, and that person was Danai Gurira. She kind of came in and really just blew us all away. Sheâ€™s got incredible presence, and sheâ€™s got a theater background, and is very physical, and was just perfect for the role.â€
On what to expect from the new setting in season 3:
It looks absolutely amazing,â€ gushes Kirkman. They are shooting the hell out of this prison. It just looks absolutely stunning, and I think when people start seeing trailers and stuff for this season, I think people are just gonna be like, Wait, what? This is what? I canâ€™t believe this is a TV show!â€ Itâ€™s really creepy, really moody and itâ€™s just gonna be really awesome.â€
Season 3 of “The Walking Dead” will premiere this October on AMC.
