‘Black Panther’ Global Junket Press Conference
January 30th, 2018   Author: Tanea   Black Panther - Pictures

Today, Danai was in attendance for the Black Panther Global Junket Press Conference in Beverly Hills, CA. You can view pictures from the event in the gallery.

Danai Gurira also opened up about going bald for the role as one of the warriors in the film and how she saw it as “subversive in the right way.”

“I was the first one to get my head shaved. In theory, it sounded amazing, and then the day came,” she said with a laugh. “It happened. Then you walk into the restroom to watch your hands, look up like, ‘What the!?’ It took a few days. The pride started to grow, there’s pride around it, embracing this symbol of power. The beauty of how he[Ryan Coogler] wrote that moment, where she doesn’t want to wear a wig. This is her joy, her pride, walking with that bald head with the tattoo on it. It’s so subversive in the right way. You don’t have to have hair to be beautiful.”
