Danai Gurira just made the emotional announcement that she is going to leave The Walking Dead after the upcoming 10th season.

“I can confirm that this is [my] last season. I will be leaving,” she said. “I would just like to say that this has been one of the purest joys of my life, to play this role. And to be amongst these people and those that are not here right now. I am very, very thankful for the experience I’ve had in ways I can’t even express right now.”

“My heart does not leave, in any shape or form. The beauty of this show is that TWD family is forever. And the first time I came here in 2012 I felt this energy and it doesn’t ever end,” Danai added.

Danai Gurira Opens Up About Growing Up in the US & Zimbabwe

Danai Gurira looks stunning on the cover of Porter Edit‘s latest issue, available now.

Here’s what the 41-year-old Avengers: Endgame actress had to share with the mag:

On the collective feeling while making Black Panther: “We knew we were doing something unprecedented. No one was coming to a job. We were coming to a calling and a purpose.”

On working with Marvel: “I love the Marvel family. I’ve had an amazing time working with all of them. And I love our fans.”

On growing up in the U.S. and Zimbabwe: “I am definitely a strong meshing of both worlds. I knew when I got [to America] that I had to be vigilant. Being in a land of such access and excess, you have to really be clear about what you’re doing and why, and how you’re going to be responsible with all of the opportunities available to you as an American citizen. And it was clear to me that I was going to retain a tangible and active connection to Zimbabwe. When I moved to Africa as a girl, I thought I was American. Then when I came back, I realized how African I was.”
