As The Walking Dead's Season 3 premiere steadily approaches, many fans are anxiously anticipating the return of Rick Grimes and his fellow survivors. Yet, a few questions still remain. Will the show finally speed up the plot's pacing? And how severe will the changes between the TV show and the graphic novel this time around?

While you're not going to find the answers to those questions until October 14 (release date) on AMC, actor David Morrissey gives an indication of how he will depict the Governor, an infamous character from the comic book series and this season's villain.
"We probably meet the Governor earlier in his journey. We meet him in Woodbury. I think he has more complexity than the comic book when he arrives. He's very fully formed when you meet him in the comic books and he's not in this yet...The things that make him the way he is happen to him on screen. We see them happening...That gives him more complexity and more motivation and reason," said the actor in an interview with EW.
Perhaps the show is taking a few cues from The Rise of the Governor, a prequel novel for the character written by franchise creator, Robert Kirkman.
Another much anticipated character making their debut in Season 3 is Michonne, a sword wielding warrior who will be played by Danai Guirira. Fans of the graphic novel are sure to have their interest piqued by her addition to the cast, as she has achieved somewhat of a reputation for her resourcefulness.
When asked why Michonne leads two "domesticated" jaw-less zombies around with her, Gurira simply states, "They are connected to Michonne's past."
"She's realized she's the higher life form. So how do you make the lower life form work for you?" she added.
