Zimbabwean actress, Danai Gurira is one Hollywood star to watch out for. She stars on the famous series “The Walking Dead and she was on the cover of the latest issue of Dujour.
Sprawling the cover in bold and colourful hues, she talks about her new off-Broadway Liberia-based play, “Eclipsed” starring Lupita Nyong’o and more.
Speaking on why she created the play, the 37-year-old actress says:
“I was enthralled by an image I saw in the New York Times in 2003 of women in the Liberian war right when it was at its climax. There were some women rebel fighters who were getting attention in the Western press because no one had even seen anything like this.” “I was raised in Africa, and I had never seen anything like it, women with AK-47s, dressed very hip and looking formidable. I was keen to one day pursue that story and put it on the stage.”
