AMC has released the first still showing English actor David Morrissey as the Governor, the ruthless dictator of Woodbury, Georgia who will definitely enliven the proceedings in Season 3 of The Walking Dead. A brutal psychopath, the Governor demands total obedience and has a diabolical way of disposing of those who displease him. Readers of The Walking Dead comics have been waiting impatiently for the appearance of one of the saga’s major villains.
Kirkman told TV Guide
, "The Governor in the show is definitely going to be the Governor in the comic. I think he definitely is going to be the character that people love to hate and are absolutely entertained by, but also somewhat terrified of. He's definitely going to be a very important character and a very nuanced character. We are not going to be watering him down."
