The Walking Dead’s “Most Beautiful” Star Explains Why She Shaved Head Bald
Michonne has long dreadlocks on The Walking Dead, but 35-year-old actress Danai Gurira is basically bald.
She looks good either way — and you could argue a short 'do is more practical in the zombie apocalypse, so maybe her alter ego should take a cue from reality. (Or would that be blasphemous, since Michonne’s hair is as much a part of her as her katana?)
According to EURweb, People magazine's Most Beautiful issue hits stands at the end of April, and Danai made the list, with her own little Q&A. Of course, they asked about her hair. “One day I had to wear a wig cap, and I said, ‘That kind of works,'" said Danai, who had an afro in college. “As soon as I could, I cut it all off, and I haven’t looked back since."
What are her beauty musts? “A good pair of earrings and a lip gloss. I’m bald, so the earrings always make me feel like, ‘Okay, I’m popping.'"
