About The Governor
The complex character of The Governor made him a very hard character to cast but the producers of the TV series adaptation of the Walking Dead made the right call in casting David Morrissey. He was so dedicated in his portrayal that he did extensive research on his character.
He was cited saying he read the book, ‘Rise of The Governor,’ to review his characterization. He also said that the noticeable southern accent that The Governor speaks with is inspired by Bill Clinton.
