Let us find out!

Dating Her Co-star Or No Interest in Dating?

Gurira is a successful personality when it comes to her career and has fans following her on every step of her life. But when you are a celebrity, you are often a victim of several rumors about your life and the same can be said about Gurira as she was rumored to have dated her co-star in The Walking Dead.

Now you might not know who she was linked with, but once back in 2015, the iconic Norman Reedus locked lips with Gurira while on the sets that prompted fans to assume if the two could be dating off-screen. Norman portrays the role as Daryl Dixon in the series.

While Michael Cudlitz (Abraham) was interrogating his co-stars on how they feel being back for the 6th season of TWD, Norman kissed Gurira, and after the smooch, Michael asked Norman,

“Are you excited to be back, Norman?”

Norman replied,  

“Now I am!”

Also, Gurira added,

“What a day! I love my job!”  

That prompted the fans to assume that the two were dating one another, but then again, the two never addressed the rumors and the expectations of the fans to see them as an off-screen couple.

The chemistry they had on-screen led them to wonder if the two had something off screen. But this curiosity of the fans was also not addressed by either of two, so the facts remain confined with the couple.

However, everyone would also like to know if she is dating her boyfriend or is married to her husband. The star, however, has not revealed anything about her love life and marital relationship which leads us to assume that she is just too busy with her thriving career and does not want any personal distractions in her life. Let's just hope she reveals any critical information about her dating life in the days to come.

It is great to see her swing her samurai sword in TWD and slay the zombies, but that needs ultra-precision in the body. Expressing the feeling about the role, she said,

"The power comes from the way you pivot your hips. Your feet have to be well placed, your shoulders dropped, your core engaged. And your arms have to be very precise. My katana is solid steel, so it's like swinging a 5-foot-long dumbbell" 

She also revealed some of her fitness routines in such manner.

 "I've always been a bit of a tough chick. That's what made me work for the part of Michonne. Taking care of my body, knowing I'll never get another, is one of my top priorities. I'm happiest when I feel strong. And I do what I need to do to get there."

She also explained that swimming, running track and playing tennis and field hockey helps her to stay fit. Take note people!
