“People run up to me and say ‘I love to hate you.'”
For most, this would be no term of endearment.
But for 52-year-old David Morrissey, best known for his infamous portrayal of ‘The Governor’ on beloved zombie drama The Walking Dead, it’s the highest praise one could possibly receive.
“I do kill off a lot of characters”, Morrissey admits. “Some of the favourite characters of the show perish at my hands.”
Listen: TV’s most sinister villain answers the burning questions you’ve always wanted to ask, on The Binge.
According to British-born Morrissey, there’s one question fans of The Walking Dead can’t quite let go; one question he can’t escape, wherever in the world he may be.
“They want to know what I would do in the zombie apocalypse”, he says. “People are very interested in the zombie apocalypse actually happening”, he told The Binge hosts Laura Brodnik and Tiffany Dunk.
So. What WOULD David Morrissey do in the zombie apocalypse then…
"Obviously I'd just head for Woodbury."
Woodbury, a town, appears in Season Three of The Walking Dead.
Morrissey goes on, "I think the Governor would be a really great person to be with in the zombie apocalypse... he has a really great plan."
"But as we know, power corrupts and he goes a bit AWOL."
Despite being best known for The Walking Dead, Morrissey has another big production in the works. And we bet you've heard of it...
