Danai Gurira is a playwright and actress best known up until very recently for her co-starring role in Tom McCarthy’s imaginative indie The Visitor and work on David Simon’s HBO drama Treme. But to the fanboys at Comic-Con, she’s already The Walking Dead’s iconic sword-wielding zombie slayer Michonne, a character seen for only a moment saving Laurie in last season’s finale. After signing autographs with the cast, Gurira walked the convention floor with Vulture to talk about battling Atlanta’s walkers (and ticks), Michonne’s reliance on tart cherry pills, and getting Richard Jenkins onboard for it all. Fortunately, she heard our questions through the random outbursts of “Michonne!” that accompanied our stroll.How are you holding up? I’m loving this. It’s a little different from doing press for The Visitor, isn’t it? Uh, yeah, just a little. And this is your first Comic-Con? »
