The Walking Dead season 3 doesn’t return until later this fall, so you have more than enough time to re-read the Governor storyline from the comics. Filming has already started as Rick’s group start to find the prison teased at the end of season two. While they may find momentary safety behind the gated walls, a new danger is lurking in the form of David Morrissey. TV Guide talked with Morrissey as he was promoting two TV-movies Thorne: Sleepyhead and Thorne: Scaredy Cat, out June 12 and 13 respectively, on Encore in which he plays Detective Tom Thorne. Morrissey revealed that he had been working with an accent coach to really nail the voice of The Governor. He talks about his preparation:
I’ve got the graphic novels but have only read Robert Kirkman’s [prequel] Rise of The Governor, which I thought was brilliant. There was so much in that book that I could [use], like the desire for survival above everything else. I’m finding out what his fears, anxieties and loves are so I can make him my own.
Morrissey went on to talk about what he is looking forward to about joining the cast. He really thinks The Walking Dead is “the right at the right time.” He kind of knows Andrew Lincoln through mutual friends and is excited to work with him. Morrissey also said that he would be attending Comic-Con, so we can probably expect a good look at The Governor by then if we don’t get one sooner. He and his family will be heading to Atlanta soon. The third season of The Walking Dead starts later this fall on AMC.
