Danai Gurira is no stranger to playing a strong female character - in her role as Michonne on TV's "The Walking Dead" she's known for her fierce fighting skills. She shows them off again in Black Panther, playing Okoye, the head of King T'Challa's (Chadwick Boseman) elite royal guard, the Dora Milajae - and a close friend of the King and his family.
