Danai Gurira describes her first day on set of ‘The Walking Dead’
October 6th, 2017   Author: Tanea   The Walking Dead - Videos

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.”

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. 🙂
