Danai Gurira Gets Flashy For 'Bello' Magazine November 2014 Cover

Danai Gurira shows off her toned arms on the cover of Bello magazine’s November 2014 issue, out on newsstands now!

Here’s what the 36-year-old actress had to share with the mag:

On her character on Walking Dead: “It started off very daunting. I knew I had to understand how to work that weapon (sword) and get into her mind. [Michonne was] someone who, in the beginning, was so impenetrable and so guarded, and obviously deeply wounded. She was someone who did not want to connect with other people. And that’s a weird and interesting thing to play, because usually that’s what you’re trying to do as an actor. And my character was trying not to do that, and most human beings are trying to do that.”

On living in the Midwest for college: “My school, according to proportion, had the largest international population of any college in America. I had an amazing, thought provoking time while there. It actually really taught me how to think for myself…a real taste of what it meant to stand up for a cause, to believe in something, to gain my own political voice. And that was all in the Midwest. There are a lot of interesting things happening in the Midwest. People don’t realize that.”

On her organization Almasi Collaborative Arts: “We go there [to Africa] and teach them on the grounds, and we’ve also brought people here for mentorship and education. It’s a way to give the African voice access. We don’t hear about the African from the African. Giving them the tools they need to be able to tell their stories in a way that is received by the global community is what we’re working towards. It’s hard for us here as artists; imagine what it’s like there.”
