Emily Kinney Talks to NY Times; Tony Award nod for Danai Gurira’s Eclipsed

This week, Emily Kinney talks to The New York Times, while Danai Gurira’s Eclipsed receives a Tony nomination. Plus, Seth Gilliam previews the havoc Negan will wreak. Read on for more:

• Talking to The New York Times, Emily Kinney reveals her Manhattan apartment has “my guitars and zombie things everywhere, because people still send them to me. I have survival kits everywhere.”

E! Online reports that Danai Gurira’s Eclipsed is nominated for a Tony Award for Best Play.

• Seth Gilliam tells Toofab, “I can say from the little bit that I do know about the upcoming season, there will be lots and lots of tears shed. I think there will be a good deal of shock, a lot of heartbreak and what I can say is that Negan is far from done.”

Backstage reports that Danai Gurira will be presented with the Drama Desk’s special Sam Norkin Award: “Danai Gurira demonstrates great insight, range, and depth, bringing a fresh new voice to American theater.”

• According to ComicBook.com, Chris Hardwick tells Jimmy Kimmel that Greg Nicotero has offered to bring zombies to his upcoming wedding, so “we’re gonna have Greg Nicotero zombies serving drinks.”

Movie Pilot looks at the seven times a character from The Walking Dead “went through a blood baptism — whether it be with their blood or someone else’s — and had their lives changed forever.”

ComicBook.com reports that the next three pages of Here’s Negan reveals that a pre-apocalyptic Negan was a school teacher and ping pong coach.

• The Wisconsin Gazette interviews Mark Grzybowski, the maker of Michonne’s sword, and he says, “It was really cool seeing my sword on television.”

Fan Fest pays homage to Carol: “I hope we don’t lose Carol along the way. Her character really is amazing, and I can only imagine the toll her death would have on the group. Especially for Daryl and Rick.”

ComicBook.com spotlights Cinematica, which has “put together a list of the eight worst deaths on The Walking Dead in a nine-minute, excruciating montage of carnage.”

• The New Zealand Herald spotlights a Lego-inspired fan-made video that “reproduces the season finale’s closing scene perfectly.”

• Speaking with Tech Insider about the zombies on HBO’s Game of Thrones, Greg Nicotero says, “I love the idea of skeletons walking around — that they threw themselves off a cliff and get up and then just start running. I thought it was great.”
