View a preview and sneak peek at next week’s episode of The Walking Dead, titled “The King, the Widow, and Rick.” Michonne will finally be back!
This morning, Danai and her TWD co-star Andrew Lincoln did a panel together at Walker Stalker Con in Atlanta! The full panel was uploaded at FanFest.com, which you can watch below. And then there are a some clips and photos from the panel below as well.
Last night, Danai appeared on Tavis Smiley’s talk show on PBS to discuss her career as a playwright, season 8 of The Walking Dead, Black Panther and her non-profit, “Love Our Girls”. Watch the full interview below or click here to watch at PBS.org. There are also screen captures from the interview in the gallery.
Danai attended the 100th episode and season 8 premiere of The Walking Dead! The whole cast was there, along with some former cast members, to celebrate and to appear on a special 2-hour live episode of Talking Dead. I was there too, since I won tickets, and it was an amazing night! I’ve added some pictures from the event to the gallery and there’s some video clips and interviews below.
We got a nice surprise this morning when a new Black Panther trailer dropped! This trailer features more of Danai as Okoye. There was also lovely a new poster released, which you can see below, with Danai right in the middle! I’ve also added a few screen captures from both trailers, that you can now view in the gallery.
The Walking Dead star talks being the number one badass of the zombie apocalypse and her side gig as a successful playwright and actress.
Entertainment Weekly released another exclusive from the set of the recent cover shoot! In this video, Danai describes her first day on set filming The Walking Dead, in which she overheated and had to lie down. You can read more about her early days on set in the article at EW.com, but there’s an excerpt below.
“I remember my first day on The Walking Dead very vividly,” says Gurira. “It was definitely a huge adjustment. I was coming into the most humid heat I had ever experienced in my life. I was wearing a beautiful but new to me dreadlocked wig and I had very short hair for a very long time so I was like, ‘What is this?’ And then the whole day, it was just me. It was a scene in the beginning between me and Andrea and then it was just me, so it was a very interesting, amazing experience because I got to connect so directly with the crew, who of course are such a huge part of the TWD family.”
Gurira also notes that she may have pushed things a bit too far on the first day. “I remember I was working on my moves,” she recalls. “I was going into that convenience store to find some Aspirin or something to help Andrea, and I was working on the moves over and over again. I’m a rehearser, so I’m going over them over and over again and I just totally kind of overheated. But I was fine. But then I went and laid down to just catch my breath and it was like six people were on me like, ‘Oh my God, she’s overheating!’ And they’re taking so much care of me and I’m thinking, I’m fine but let them do their thing. ‘Cause they just know how to handle everything. They were nervous for me. They tried to ease me into this whole thing. It was amazing.”
This is a pretty cute video from behind the scenes of the recent EW shoot, where the cast tries to explain all of what’s happened in the first 7 seasons in 30 seconds!
The main cast of The Walking Dead is featured on the cover of the September 29th issue of Entertainment Weekly! The photos were shared today, including previews of 3 different covers! The 3rd cover, which features Carol, Daryl, Rick and Michonne, will be available exclusively at Barnes & Noble stores beginning Sept. 26. Or you can order all three covers (or any of them individually) online here. You can read more in this cover reveal post by EW. And then as if that weren’t enough, there’s more pictures and a couple of behind the scenes videos below. This is amazing! 😀

I’ve put together a masterpost with a bunch of stuff from this year’s SDCC! Anything else I find, as far as professional pictures and videos from the event, will go here. There’s not much for The Walking Dead since they cancelled all SDCC press this year after a tragic death on set. But there’s still plenty of great Black Panther stuff. 🙂
The first official trailer for season 8 of The Walking Dead premiered today at San Diego Comic Con! Watch below!
Here’s the video of Danai’s appearance this morning on Live with Kelly and Ryan!
