Late Show: David Morrissey The Walking Dead Review

David Morrissey may be best known for his role on The Walking Dead as the evil Governor. He has a town full of people under his maniacal spell as he stores zombies in cages around the town for when they have fight-to-the-death games involving zombies and humans. With his town Woodbury as a sort of sanctuary for people to build up society again, it seems strange he would use it for such evil.

In an interview with the Huffington Post, Morrissey explained his character as someone who enjoys the suffering and pain more than he wants to rebuild a society for people.

“With Woodbury, he has built a sanctuary, a place of safety where humanity can start again,” Morrissey said. “But the negative side of power is like a wobbly tooth for him. He just can’t stop sticking his tongue in there. There’s something gloriously painful about it, and he likes that.”

It seems as if a bit of the Governor’s personality might have overlapped with David Morrissey’s life as of late, saying he objects to what reality shows are doing. He said he “objects” The X Factor and Big Brother, likening both of the shows to “throwing cabbage at people in the stocks.”


He has a problem with period dramas as well, saying there should be less period dramas and more shows about real things happening in the real world to real people.

He does remember he stars in a show about zombies taking over the world, right?
