For the most part, The Walking Dead cast is a very social bunch, with many of them maintaining Twitter pages, Instagram accounts, and much more. But there’s one fan-favorite actress on the AMC hit who has managed to steer clear of social media — until now that is.
Danai Gurira (Michonne) joined the show at the end Season 2 (first appearing in the finale as a mysterious hooded figure). It’s hard to believe that she’s lasted so long without any social media accounts, but alas, that seems to be the case. However, late last week Danai finally caved and created her own Twitter account.
On May 30 she sent out her inaugural tweet, which read, “Just setting up my Twitter. #myfirstTweet.” Impressively enough, her account has already been verified and she’s amassed an impressive 9,000+ followers. She’s only following seven people (none of whom are her TWD co-stars!) but we’re sure that will change in time.
So far Danai has only sent out that one tweet, but given that she’s hard at work on Season 5 of TWD, we’re willing to cut her some slack. If you’re so inclined, you can help Danai get her followers up by adding @DanaiGurira.
Are you surprised that Danai just set up a Twitter account? Do you think she will be a good source of on-set photos and gossip? Weigh in below!
The Walking Dead Season 5 premieres in October 2014 on AMC.
