David Morrissey talks about 'The Walking Dead'


Tonight is the night that the killing commences.

Of course, I am referring to the return of The Walking Dead on AMC. Are you ready?

David Morrissey certainly is. Morrissey, who has become one of television's most hate able characters with his turn as "The Governor" on the show, recently discussed the series and what lies ahead.

The Governor's town was attacked when we left last season, with Michonne (Danai Gurira) ending the life (if you want to call it that) of the Governor's daughter and taking his eye. Of course, readers of the comic book series can tell you that this Governor got off pretty easy compared to his counterpart. How will this affect the Governor going forward?

"He's in quite a dark place," Morrissey said. "The one thing that he really loves is his daughter and I think that's what gave him his humanity — the semblance of humanity that he had. He had something to live for, some hope. Michonne has taken that away from him. ... He is hurting and the question is how long will that hurt survive? How far will he go on that hurt?"

This leads to bloodshed, to say the least. Andrea (Laurie Holden) has begun a relationship with the Governor and finds herself torn between her crew and her boyfriend. Can she ease the tensions?

"Once Michonne destroys his world.... there's no room for [Andrea] to get inside his conscience," he said. "That's a dangerous place to be. I think what [Andrea] would be hoping for... is that the Governor re-finds his humanity and this caring side that she feels he's had. If [his humanity] comes back... and he decides that his search for revenge is a bad thing, it will come back via her."
