THE WALKING DEAD
EXPECT A MORE
“I think that if you have people to protect, you can actually become more ferocious, like a lioness,” Danai said, then shared a story to illustrate her perspective. “My sister and I were really stupid — we were on a safari in December in Zimbabwe. She took all these pictures because we found all these lionesses with the lions. They would make the little lion cubs go away, because they were trying to figure out what we were.
They were watching us and watching us — just chilling, and we thought they were so far away. She took pictures and blew them up later, and there were three other lionesses we couldn’t see that were ready to pounce at any second, watching us watch their kids. …
When you have something to protect, I used to say [Michonne] was like a cat, but now I think she’s more like a lioness because she really cares about things she doesn’t want to see harmed. She will go possibly further to protect them than she would have done before.”
