Watch Danai Gurira As Michonne Decapitating Zombies In 1st 'Walking Dead' Season 3 Clip

I'm sure we (fans of the show anyway) all know by now that Danai Gurira will play Michonne in season 3 of AMC's hit zombie drama series The Walking Dead; and we should see a lot of her, if past reports since the announcement of her casting, stay true, after her brief hooded intro towards the end of season 2's finale episode.

And now we have your first-look at Danai in character as Michonne in action.

As previously noted, expect a 6-page origin story for Michonne, which reveals the character's backstory, like where she was at the onset of the outbreak; but don't expect those pages to make it into the show. Creator/producer Robert Kirkman has said that he likes the mystery that'll surround her if her backstory is kept off the show; although audiences can readily read up on her if they're that curious.

And by the way, Ernest Dickerson is directing episode 1 of season 3, which is expected to be even more insane than the season finale of season 2.

EW previously asked Kirkman whether the Michonne in the comics (the unflinching warrior) is the Michonne we'll see on screen, and he replied: "The essence of the character — her personality, her motives, everything that makes Michonne Michonne — remains intact from the comics... But like a lot of things on the show, there will be little tweaks and differences here and there. We saw that her introduction is slightly different from how it was in the comic, and her interaction with Andrea is really going to be a really cool addition to the character that I think will get television viewers up to speed, and they’ll get to know her a lot faster than comic book readers did."

Watch the 1-minute clip below, which aired during a special episode of AMC's Talking Dead last night; it's not official, so this may very well disappear shortly:
