In the last few minutes of the season two finale of The Walking Dead, Michonne saved Andrea from a couple of zombies by slashing them with a samurai sword, but we never got to see her face. Moments after the finale, it was announced that Danai Gurira (Treme) would be playing Michonne and since then, fans have been anxiously waiting to see her in action.
Now, we got our first look at Gurira as Michonne. Check out the image here below.
We all know that anything that is adapted for any screen will be changed or modified. So just how different the televised Michonne will be from her comic-book form is a mystery. The fact is, Michonne made her presence known. Below is what Robert Kirkman (the creator of the comic and executive producer of the TV adaptation) had to say about the character in an interview with Entertainment Weekly, which debuted this first photo.
â€œThe essence of the character â€” her personality, her motives, everything that makes Michonne Michonne â€” 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 theyâ€™ll get to know her a lot faster than comic book readers did.â€
