THE WALKING DEAD: New Details On The Role Of Michonne And The Governor In Season Three
The Walking Dead showrunner Glen Mazzara provides new details on the roles of Michonne and The Governor in season three, while a high-resolution version of the poster first revealed last night has now been released.
"The entire landscape has fallen to zombies, Glem Mazzara tells Entertainment Weekly about where we find the group of survivors at the beginning of the third season. "The entire world has collapsed, the apocalypse has taken over, the zombies have taken over, there’s no safe place. And I think in the past our characters thought they could find some safe harbor, and now there’s just no good hiding place at all." Well, there is one safe place of course; the Prison which was introduced briefly at the end of the second season.
"Just like in the comic books, she is a badass and she hates the walkers more than anything else," Mazzara says about the introduction of fan-favourite character Michonne. "She treats them with contempt. What’s interesting about the version of this character is she has a lot of trouble fitting into human society. She’s probably better off staying out there alone with the walkers. She’ll be very interesting and a complicated character to bring into the fold, if we even do that. She gives us a lot to play with."
As for The Governor, and what makes British actor David Morrissey the right actor to play the villain, he adds, "David is an incredibly talented actor with a lot of magnetism, and we need somebody who can serve as the foundation, the pillar, for an entire storyline, an entire world of Woodbury. David has the strength to do that. I also think that David’s approach to the character was spot on. He understands that this is an interesting, complex, multilayered, dark figure, and he’s very interested in playing that." Which of these characters are you most looking forward to seeing in the third season of the show? Sound off with your thoughts in the usual place.
