Danai Gurira had the idea of the kiss
A kiss that one has to… Danai Gurira. As told to Angela Kang, the showrunner of
The Walking Dead, with Entertainment Weekly, it is the actress who spoke of this approximation, and given the idea of a kiss between the two characters. “ I had a conversation with Danai and she said : ‘You know, it would be interesting if someone tried to kiss Michonne and responsive’. Because Michonne is also the face of things and it has not explored his life, romantic or sexual, since the death is supposed to Rick.” confided Angela Kang. She explained to have initially been rather against the idea before finally integrate it into the scenario.
But don’t think Michonne will get closer to Ezekiel before his grand departure. “
Ezekiel feels alone and very sad. It is obscured a bit for a second and realize immediately that it has done anything,” says Angela Kang, who also confides : “there are a lot of factors that have contributed to this kiss, but it seems to us to be the kind of thing that happens sometimes between friends, and it was thought that it would be interesting to explore. We see that Michonne is very tender with him, knowing that it comes from a time when it was not going well. He suffers a lot and is lost“. Season 10 of The Walking Dead continues on Sundays in the US on AMC and on every Monday in the US+24 on OCS.
