About Danai Gurira:
Danai Jekesai Gurira is a Zimbabwean American actress and playwright, best known for her role as Michonne on The Walking Dead, an AMC television horror drama series.
I love writing for other actors, women of African descent and people who are generally underrepresented.
You Americans, you have no idea how much your stuff infiltrates the rest of the world!
I've always been attracted to action stuff.
My artistic spirit is not nurtured by blogospheres.
A zombie apocalypse isn't the most jovial situation.
Back in the day, I used to read 'Archie,' but I haven't been a comic book aficionado.
I got an M.F.A. in acting from NYU, and part of our training is to learn how to use swords in combat situations in a performance and Shakespeare plays where you have to fight.
I've always been extremely physically active.
I don't care about the quality of the film as a whole, but I loved 'Salt.' I loved it!
I always used to say hybrids would rule the world - people who have an understanding of many cultures and can relate to them with ease. And then along came Obama.
Zimbabweans are so smart and witty and able to weave together tons of situations and experiences into terminologies that are just utterly original.
I create fictional narratives, but it's based on literal people.
I hate horror movies! I avoid them like the plague. I don't like getting scared.
You look at women like Lena Dunham, you look at how women are kind of crafting their own space on the screen. I want to add to that.
