The resemblance between the paper version and the television version of Michonne and Negan is impressive!
It’s a little game we love to play! Look for points of comparison between the different actors and their paper namesakes (taken from comics or novels). And for good reason, the result is often very surprising, as was the case with the protagonists of the successful Netflix series The Umbrella Academy. Today is therefore the turn of the horror show of AMC The Walking Dead to be sifted through. Whether it’s Rick Grimes, Daryl or even Negan, Carol and even Michonne, it’s a lot of fun to know if their portrayals are close to the characters imagined in the comics. To find out, the site Looper conducted his little investigation and here is the result.
First indisputable fact, the resemblance of Michonne and Negan is truly disturbing. On the side of Rick Grimes and Shane Walsh, the concordances are quite relevant, although the two actors Andrew Lincoln and Jon Bernthal do not look exactly like their paper version. For example, Rick on the show never had his right hand cut off by the governor. Then, Carol and Carl Grimes are meanwhile quite far from their original protagonist. Moreover, in the comics, Carol is the exact opposite of the role played by Melissa McBride. Far from being a hardened survivor, the latter is very gentle, fearful and very fragile. Very far from the badass behavior we know him. Finally, it is especially the comparison of Daryl and the governor that caught our attention. And for good reason, if the first does not exist in the comics, as far as the governor is concerned, nothing is right. His eye injury is not in a good way, he doesn’t wear a mustache and still has his right arm. Also discover what the six bonus episodes of season 10 of The Walking Dead are going to talk.
