'The Walking Dead' star Danai Gurira says Michonne is no longer a loner

Michonne may not have exactly seemed like a people person when we first met her on The Walking Dead, but that cold, hard exterior has softened over time. Heck, we’ve even seen her smile a few times and strike up a friendship with Carl. But how comfortable is she now in a big group? And how comfortable will she be in a big group full of new faces (like Abraham, Eugene, Rosita, and Tara)? We asked actress Danai Gurira that and more when we spoke about the upcoming season 5 (which premieres this Sunday). Here’s what you need to know about Michonne going forward.

ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY: What can you say about Michonne coming up in season 5 in terms of her evolution? How is she going to be fitting in with this new group that we have here?
DANAI GURIRA: I think she’s still evolving and settling into the idea that I’m now going to be a part of this team. Before she was a part of the team, but she had time to get on her horse and go away and spend time alone. But fully immersed and invested is another level of commitment. It really is about her living in that and then what that evolved into for her in terms of really deciding, I want to live. I want to live and I want to live with people and I want to be committed. How does that really look in a world this vile? READ FULL STORY

'Doctor Who' guest star Foxes talks 'Mummy on the Orient Express'

How busy has Foxes been of late? Busy enough that the British singer-songwriter neglected to tell her family she was making a guest appearance alongside Peter Capaldi and Jenna Coleman on this Saturday’s episode of Doctor Who, the tantalizingly titled “Mummy on the Orient Express.”

'The Walking Dead' star Norman Reedus on the 'tight bond' between Daryl and Carol

I caught up with Norman Reedus this summer on The Walking Dead set while he was shooting a scene from episode 6 of the new season (which kicks of Sunday night). In between takes, we sat on the rooftop of the Grant Building in downtown Atlanta and talked spoilers, industry respect, and what’s coming up for Daryl Dixon.

ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY: I understand you all are shooting more downtown in the city again, which you guys haven’t done in a long time. Tell me what that’s like and tell me how it’s different from when you first started shooting in terms of fans, the crush and all that stuff.
NORMAN REEDUS: Well, it’s a little different because there’s a lot of people walking around, so there are people will camera phones and there’s noise — as you can hear — and traffic and stuff like that…trains, whatever going by. There are no bugs, that’s good. It’s fun to be away from the woods for an episode or whatever, just for a little awhile. It’s different. When you look at an apocalyptic landscape and it’s the city, it’s really jarring to look at, so I’m excited to see how this all turns out. It’s much different, especially in this episode and not having what we’re familiar with. It really keeps you on edge as a character and you find that there’s so many little nooks and crannies that aren’t usually there that are new. And if you take a place like the city and you imagine how many dead people can be roaming around, they could anywhere. There could a lot of them, so it keeps you on your toes. READ FULL STORY

'The Walking Dead' star Lauren Cohan on why the season premiere 'gives me goosebumps'

Lauren Cohan has been having nightmares lately. It seems the move back to filming more in the city for season 5 of The Walking Dead has been messing with her mind and causing her to imagine doomsday scenarios in her sleep. But as disturbing as that sounds, there is plenty that Cohan is excited about when it comes to the return of The Walking Dead on Sunday, Oct. 12 — starting with a premiere that she promises is “the most action packed episode this show has ever seen.” Read on as the woman who plays Maggie Greene lets loose on what to expect coming up.

'The Walking Dead' star Steven Yeun says Glenn 'is a leader' in season 5

Talking to Steven Yeun is always an enlightening experience. The guy tends to be quite thoughtful and candid when discussing The Walking Dead. Sure, we get into all the stuff you would expect, like what we will see from Glenn in the upcoming season. Yeun has plenty to say about all of that (as evidenced by the headline above). But he also enjoys veering the conversation into other directions, and they are always interesting. So read on to hear Yeun talking about not only about the show, but viewer reaction to it, and what it will take for The Walking Dead to remain a viable and vital program moving forward. Good stuff, folks. (Click through both pages to read the entire interview.) READ FULL STORY

'The Walking Dead' producer Gale Anne Hurd on 'the most ambitious episodes we've ever done'

The-Walking-Dead-Season-5-trailer.jpg

The Walking Dead season 5 premiere is now a mere week away. We already provided a One-Minute Refresher to get you all caught up on everything that happened last season. Now, executive producer Gale Anne Hurd spills some intel on what to expect coming up when the show returns on Oct. 12.

ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY: Okay, Gale, what can you say about the overall story or theme we’re looking at this season, or at least during the first eight episodes?
GALE ANNE HURD: Well, certainly what we’re seeing is that Rick Grimes is accepting the mantle of leadership in a way that is unlike he’s ever done in previous seasons. And that tends to have a ripple effect, with his relationships across the board in this show. We’re also embarking on the most ambitious episodes we’ve ever done in terms of not only the action set pieces, but also the level of emotional weight that’s brought to bear on the characters.

'The Walking Dead' star Danai Gurira on how she'd fare in a real sword fight

walking-dead-danai-gurira

She looks badass swinging her katana this way and that on The Walking Dead. No doubt about it: Michonne is one woman you don’t want to mess with in the zombie apocalypse. But how would the woman who plays her, Danai Gurira, fare in a real sword fight? Would all that training pay off if Gurira needed to start slicing and dicing herself?

We spoke to Gurira while she took a break from her recent EW cover shoot and asked about her real life sword skills. How did she respond? Just click on the video player below to find out. And for more Walking Dead intel, follow me on Twitter @DaltonRoss. READ FULL STORY

'The Walking Dead' star Andrew Lincoln says 'the terror comes from the humans' in season 5

So this is what you get for trusting people. Rick Grimes and Co. heard a radio signal and saw painted sings promising peace and sanctuary at a place called Terminus. But all that awaited them there were a group of possible cannibals who funneled them into a box car. Man, people suck. First the Governor and now this?!? But to hear Andrew Lincoln tell it, that is what’s to be expected — and feared — in this new post-apocalyptic environment when season 5 of The Walking Dead kicks off on Oct. 12. We chatted with the star about what’s coming up — including the most violent season yet and a return back to downtown Atlanta — as well as his thoughts on how long he might like to remain on the show…assuming he is not killed off prematurely at some point, which is a terrible assumption to make when it comes to The Walking Dead.

Emily Kinney reveals every single 'Walking Dead' secret

Emily-Kinney-clip.jpg

The stars of The Walking Dead are trained well to not reveal even the tiniest morsel of information when it comes to the hit zombie drama. But that doesn’t mean that we can’t try to trick them into giving up the goods. What if we just threw huge potential spoilers at them and then deduced from their reactions whether they were true or not?

Well, that’s exactly what we did when Emily Kinney dropped by the offices recently. We put the woman who plays Beth through the wringer by forcing her to play our favorite game: GOTCHA! Can Emily make it through an entire round without inadvertently spilling any secrets about the upcoming season 5? You be the judge! Just click on the video player below to see how she does, and for more Walking Dead scoop, follow me on Twittter @DaltonRoss. Okay, let’s play a round of GOTCHA! READ FULL STORY

'The Walking Dead' star Chad Coleman on why Tyreese is 'still struggling'

He has been the gentle giant of The Walking Dead, but not so gentle that he can’t take on an army of zombies if need be. However, there is no doubt that Tyreese has struggled with the new rules and level of violence often necessary in the post-apocalyptic landscape. And according to actor Chad Coleman, that struggle will continue when the show returns on Oct. 12. We chatted with Coleman about what’s coming up for Tyreese, getting back together with the cast, the mini The Wire reunion happening, and the new urban feel of season 5.

ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY: So let’s talk some Tyreese. I’m curious how he’s going to be dealing now with all the stuff that happened to him last season — his girlfriend being killed, Carol confessing to it, having to watch Carol put Lizzie down. And, on top of all that, he’s a sensitive soul. So how’s he dealing with the violence of this world and some of it by the members of his own group?
CHAD COLEMAN: Well, you know, we pick up right where we left off, so there’s no jump in time. You catch him right in the middle of it, in the tug-of-war of emotions, just wrestling with it, the push and pull. On one level feeling a connection with Carol for sure with all that we witnessed together, and just the pull of the pain of losing someone who meant so much to me. So he’s still struggling. He’s still wrestling. And then, on top of that, they’re trying to make their way to Terminus, so it’s just a push-and-pull and still trying to hold that weird little community, trying to hold it together to get to a larger safer place. And hopefully reconnect with the rest of the group. READ FULL STORY

'The Walking Dead' star Lauren Cohan says 'we're all animals' in season 5

walking-dead-lauren-cohan

She was just a simple farm girl once upon a time. But then the zombie apocalypse happened and her entire family went either dead or missing. I guess that’s the bad news. The good news is that at least she has a swell boyfriend who is no longer acting like a tool because he could not forgive her for being sexually assaulted by the Governor. (Not Glenn’s finest hour.)
