First Look at David Morrissey as The Governor in The Walking Dead Season 3


By now you already know that AMC’s hit zombie show “The Walking Dead” Season 3 has added another English actor to its cast, which brings the number to three. (Star Andrew Lincoln and co-star Lauren Cohan are also English, in case you were wondering.) The third actor is one David Morrissey, who is set to play the nefarious The Governor in the show’s upcoming Season 3.

Opines “Walking Dead” creator/producer Robert Kirkman about the Governor’s introduction in the coming season:

Seeing The Walking Dead come to life on AMC has been a real thrill for me, obviously, and moving into Season 3 I’m even more excited than ever because now I feel like we’re really getting to ‘the good stuff’. Having The Governor in the mix is going to fundamentally change the show in all kinds of awesome and exiting ways. And David Morrissey totally rocks!

Kirkman also promises that “the Governor in the show is definitely going to be The Governor in the comic”, which certainly spells bad times for Rick and company. But mostly poor Rick.

And oh look, here’s our first glimpse of The Governor from Season 3!

    At least they got rid of the hair and mustache. Maybe Merle will have that look.

      That would be a cool little nod to the comics. I’m sure that this guy will be cool but he looks like Ed Norton and Colin Firth had a baby! Lol.

    I think Danny Trejo kina looks like the Governor. They should’ve used him.

      That would’ve been awesome!
