Danai Gurira, who plays Michonne in the hit series The walking Dead is infected with Ebola Virus while shooting in Africa.
The tv show was filming a future event in Sudan and hired locals to play zombies. In a really ironic happening, Gurira had been bitten by an overzealous star, and afterwards contracted the dangerous Ebola virus.
President and CEO of AMC systems Josh Sapan stated, “Our thoughts and prayers tend to be with Danai Gurira and her family members as she battles this awful infection. Similar to her character on the program, Gurira is a real fighter.
The Zimbabwean-American celebrity ended up being flown to Atlanta, Georgia after her signs began to manifest a few days after the bite. Production is halted, as the whole cast and production crew has been separated so that the virus will not spread. The quarantine is anticipated to force the tv show to-be rewritten or briefly stopped while Gurira is in recovery.
