Walking Dead is an unusual show as it does not glamourize their stars. They are dirty, grungy, and in the case of Daryl, in desperate need of a shower. It’s a surprise they don’t show lice crawling through their hair.
Then you see Sonequa Martin-Green in person. She looks 10 years younger and is stunningly beautiful. She has a non-stop smile that is not often seen on the show and she just ‘shines’ as she talks to people.
The autograph was a great excuse to see her up close and realize how much makeup is needed to put her in character.
