Welcome to Loving Danai Gurira, a fansite dedicated to the talented actress and playwright Danai Gurira! You may know her from her iconic roles as Michonne on The Walking Dead and as Okoye in Marvel superhero movies like Black Panther and Avengers: Endgame. As a fan, my goal is to support Danai while providing a resource and a community for other fans. Before you go, make sure you check out the photo gallery, currently featuring over 15,000 photos. Thanks so much for stopping by!
Danai had a feature in Alexa, The New York Post‘s fashion broadsheet, back in February 2016. She had these beautiful photos and a full article that you can read online here. There are also a couple of videos below of Danai behind the scenes of the shoot and talking about The Walking Dead.
New York Comic Con is this weekend, and the panel for The Walking Dead was yesterday! I’ve got some pictures from the panel and a few of the cast afterward. There’s a video of the panel and a new sneak peek from the premiere below.
Danai Gurira stopped by LIVE with Kelly this morning to chat with Kelly Ripa and her co-host Fred Savage! She talked about working with a trainer, and they tried to get her to spill about The Walking Dead, #Richonne and who gets Lucilled, but of course she couldn’t tell them anything. 😛 Watch below!
2016 Global Citizen Festival to End Extreme Poverty By 2030. The event was held today in Central Park, and had appearances by several celebrities and musicians. If you haven’t heard of Global Citizen, it’s an organization with the mission to encourage people to take action on issues such as world hunger. Danai spoke on stage but before the show she spoke with an interviewer on the red carpet and gave some really powerful words about taking action. She also had some advice for girls and women around the world. She is such an inspiration. See the pictures and a couple of videos below!
One story from the caring world: Nyumbani. Narrated by Danai Gurira, this film shows how this unique organization is changing the story of children and HIV/AIDS in Africa. Johnson & Johnson is proud to help Nyumbani by supporting programs that bring clean water, education and access to new medicines.
There was a new trailer released this week for Danai’s upcoming movie All Eyez On Me. If you haven’t heard, it’s a biopic based on the life of the rapper Tupac Shakur. Danai plays Afeni Shakur, Tupac’s mother. Watch the new trailer below!
Danai appears in the beginning of the trailer as we see a montage of memories for each character present during the Negan scene from the season 6 finale. For Michonne and Rick, we see scenes from their time together and with Carl and Judith. The trailer is so intense and I can’t wait for the premiere!
The Walking Dead returns October 23rd, so mark your calendars!
