‘The Walking Dead’
Season 3 Blu-ray
Goes Behind the Scenes
‘The Walking Dead’ season 3 highlights the gory process it took to bring one of Michonne’s (Danai Gurira) most iconic images to life, or un-life as it were, in making the katana-wielding warrior’s “pets.”
As it turns out, more practical FX work went into making Michonne’s jawless, armless walker companions (who have their own tragic history outside the show) than we might have thought. Indeed the actor’s arms were “hacked off” by wearing blue sleeves to remove in post production, thought the visceral effect of removing their jaws was actually achieved by a makeup and perspective trick that left the performers virtually blind.
