Considering the show is shambling along slower than a zombie, I think it’s fairly obvious who we’re going to see staring in the second half of “The Walkinmg Dead”, yet producer Gale Anne Hurd felt the need to clarify which comic star won’t be making a cameo in the final episodes.
“We are following the character development of the women in the comic book,” she tells The Watercooler. “Andrea is already undergoing a change in her character from a civil rights attorney lacking survival skills already found in some of the men (like the deputies Rick and Shane, or the survivalist Daryl) into someone who can take care of herself. Maggie Greene is a farmer’s daughter who can ride horses better than any of the men, and takes out a walker the first time we see her in the series. And one of the most kick ass characters from the comic book is Michonne, a samurai sword wielding woman, who will be introduced in future seasons.”
Considering how bland the show is, I’m thinking digitally inserting Michonne now is the best course of action (of course I’m kidding). Seriously though, Michonne is an amazing character (wielding a blade!) that can bring some much-needed depth to the bland array of misfits.
