The Walking Dead Announces Who Will Play Michonne

The Walking Dead Midseason PosterThe second season finale of The Walking Dead just wrapped up and no spoilers here in case you haven’t watched it yet, but let’s just say it was everything you could have wanted from the final episode of the season and more. Much more. Zombies were everywhere and our heroes were running for their lives. It was crazy!
Anyway, with season two now over and done with, AMC has revealed who will be playing Michonne in season three (we got a brief glimpse of the character in the season two finale). Danai Gurira (The Visitor) will play Michonne, a “mysterious woman armed with a sword” who’s a fan favorite in the Robert Kirkman comic books.
The Walking Dead Plot (for those who haven’t caught on to the series yet):
The Walking Dead tells the story of the months and years after a zombie apocalypse, following a group of survivors who travel in search of a safe and secure home. The series goes on to explore the challenges of life in a world overrun by walkers, where the interpersonal conflicts often present a greater danger than anything else and over time, the characters grow willing to do almost anything to survive.
