Two controversial characters are joining the cast of The Walking Dead, and they also happen to be two of most memorable from the comic book: Michonne and The Governor, played by Danai Gurira and David Morrissey, respectively. Executive producer Gale Anne Hurd and showrunner Glen Mazzara said the time was right time to introduce Michonne and the Governor to the TV show. “We wanted to open up the world,” Mazzara said. “The first two seasons is our group trying to find a safe haven. When that farm is overrun, there are no more safe havens. Now, the story is, ‘How do you live in this world?’ The Walkers are not going away. There’s no help coming. What do we do? This is about different people trying different strategies to try to rebuild their lives. That’s the story we’re telling in Season 3.”
Do Andrea and Michonne forge a relationship, in Season 3?
LAURIE HOLDEN: I’m very touched that she chose to save my life because she didn’t know me from Adam. She’s a warrior and an alpha female. We become the best of friends. I think we complement one another. We have each other’s backs. There’s a mutual respect and a genuine love between these two women that become the best of friends. Season 3 is quite a journey for this duo.
