Cutting Edge:  First Look at Danai Gurira as Michonne!

For those of you who have been waiting for anything SEASON 3 of THE WALKING DEAD, here’s something you might enjoy:

Today, posted an exclusive first image of actress Danai Gurira as the sword-wielding bad girl Michonne.

So she totally looks the part.  But will she act like the Michonne we all know, love and fear?  According to THE WALKING DEAD creator, Robert Kirkman…pretty much.  Kirkman says in the article:

 “The essence of the character — her personality, her motives, everything that makes Michonne Michonne — remains intact from the comics, 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.”

Since Season 3 just started filming this month, kudos to for getting that first look out to fans so quickly.  You can read the entire article by clicking here.
