Michonne actress Danai Gurira leaving The Walking Dead

February 9th, 2019 by Marc Comments

Ooof! Looks like The Walking Dead is losing another major character.

Word is that actress Danai Gurira who plays Michonne, is stepping down from the role after a few episodes of Season 10.

The character joined the show in season 3 and has been a mainstay and fan favourite ever since.

While it’s not know why she is leaving, the actress (and playwright) was rumoured a few weeks back to be more focused on her movie career, having recently joined the MCU as Black Panther’s General Okoye.

She is the latest in a string of main characters to step away from the series including Andrew Lincoln and Lauren Cohen.


We’re sad to see her leave as she brought the comic character to life perfectly and was always a series highpoint.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
