Officially Michonne appeared in the season finale of The Walking Dead as the mysterious hooded figure with two zombies on chains. Entertainment Weekly now gives us our first "official" look at actress Danai Gurira as the popular character. Robert Kirkman, creator of The Walking Dead, had this to say about how Michonne would differ in the television series compared to her comic book counterpart. “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.”
The Walking Dead returns to television this October!
