Melissa McBride Pranks Danai Gurira on Set: See the Hilarious Photo!
The plotlines on The Walking Dead can often get very serious and morbid (so much death and destruction!) but we’re glad to see that the cast still knows how to have fun while logging long hours on the Georgia set. Case in point, the photo on the left of Melissa McBride (Carol Peletier) and Danai Gurira (Michonne) hard at work on Season 3 of the hit show last year.
The photo, which AMC’s Walking Dead Twitter page shared yesterday in honor of Throwback Thursday, shows Melissa standing directly behind Danai playfully wielding Michonne’s katana or some other sharp object. Melissa is holding the prop weapon as if she’s about to strike, and also has one finger in front of her mouth in an effort to keep her “attack” a surprise.
Danai is blissfully unaware of all the action occurring behind her, which makes Melissa’s prank even funnier. The photo is a behind the scenes snap from The Walking Dead Season 3, Episode 16: “Welcome to the Tombs,” which also happened to be the final episode of the season.
We know that Melissa is just joking around in this picture, but it’s a bit eerie given the fact that Melissa’s character Carol did kill two people in cold blood in TWD Season 4. Sure, she offed Karen and David in an effort to contain the flu that they already had, but still, what a coincidence!

The Walking Dead airs Sunday nights at 9 p.m. ET on AMC.
