First Look at The Walking Dead Season 3’s Michonne!

You got a fleeting glimpse at her at the end of “The Walking Dead” Season 2 as a hooded stranger with two armless zombies in tow.

Today, everyone is getting their first look at Michonne (played by Danai Gurira), a character who was embraced by fans of the comic book and is making her series debut on AMC’s third season of “The Walking Dead.”

“The essence of the character – her personality, her motives, everything that makes Michonne Michonne – remains intact from the comics,” series creator Robert Kirkman tells Entertainment Weekly. “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.”
