Danai Gurira Talks Michonne Training For 'The Walking Dead' + Behind-The-Scenes Footage

Series executive producer Gale Ann Hurd said: Michonne kicks ass with a katanna sword. The intensity level is incredible…

Producer Robert Kirkman said something similar. 

And we can’t wait to see it all on screen, less than a month from now.

Ernest Dickerson directed the season’s debut episode, which should feature plenty of Danai Gurira as sword-wielding Michonne in season 3 of AMC’s hit zombie drama series The Walking Dead.

Season 3 will air in two 8-episode parts – the first starting on October 14, 9pm; the second will begin in February 2013

Watch the new clip below which includes Danai discussing training for the role, as well as behind-the-scenes footage of her actually training (underneath, ew character posters).
