Never mind any characters on The Walking Dead, we wouldn't mind being Gale Anne Hurd!
The TWD executive producer has also produced amazing action films like The Terminator, Aliens, The Abyss, and T2, all featuring badass women in lead roles. Gale was even married for a while to directors James Cameron and Brian De Palma, so you know she’s probably tough enough to handle just about anything.
Now part of Gale’s job is hanging out on the set of The Walking Dead Season 5, which is currently in production. AMC asked if, after five seasons, she’d developed an affinity for any specific TWD character. “Every season, it’s a little bit different,” Gale answered. “I’m very fickle. Last season, it was Carl because his story was so compelling. Carol’s journey has been a truly remarkable one and Rick is still the leader, even though he loses his way from time to time — but I think I want to be Michonne."
Michonne also sounds right up Gale’s alley, when you compare her to, say, Sarah Connor ofTerminator or Ellen Ripley of Alien(s). That’s not bad company to keep.
Which TWD character would you want to be — or would you rather be like Gale and get to work on the show itself?
The Walking Dead Season 5 premieres in October on AMC.
