Danai Gurira has become a common name in the world of television, conquering the screen on AMC’s 11-season run of The Walking Dead. In the post-apocalyptic series, Gurira’s character, katana-wielding Michonne, technically first appeared in the season 2 finale, having rescued Andrea from walkers.
From then until her departure in season 10, Michonne became one of the strongest, bravest, best-developed characters in the series. Her impact on the show is still felt today, as she transformed herself from a rather elusive and withdrawn woman, who suffered like many before the apocalypse, to a profound leader, fearless mother, and most loyal wife.
It seemed there was nothing Michonne could not do. And fans have Danai to thank for bringing this iconic character to life!
Outside The Walking Dead, Gurira has had roles in several films, television shows, while also being a UN Women Goodwill Ambassador, among other accomplishments. She will be returning to The Walking Dead in the upcoming spinoff The Walking Dead: The Ones Who Live, reprising her role.
