Danai Gurira’s long days on The Walking Dead set are taking a small toll on her personal life — and her grooming habits, Dish Nation has exclusively learned.

Gurira plays Michonne on the hit AMC series, the mysterious blade-yielding protagonist.

“Having a role on Walking Dead requires you to look messy and disheveled all the time, so Danai barely ever shaves her armpits or legs,” an insider told Dish.

“While many actresses would love to have a role that doesn’t require you to sit for hours in make-up and costume, Danai actually finds it to be a little tougher — especially when it comes to her personal life because she literally forgets to shave.”

Set in the middle of a zombie apocalypse, Gurira, 36, pulls off the role of the skilled warrior perfectly.

“Her friends and family constantly tease her because she shows up hairy to their events,” the source added.

“It’s not like Danai is a dirty person — she’s very hygienic. But when you spend every day prepping for a role by throwing dirt on yourself to look like a complete mess, it’s easy to forget to do simple tasks…like shaving.”

Gurira is a Zimbabwean-American actress who ideally enough already knew how to handle swords for her role in The Walking Dead because of her time as a playwright at the Yale Repertory Theater.

“Everyone always knows when the show is on hiatus because Danai looks so beautiful and she remembers to shave her legs!” the insider told Dish.
