    She considered changing her first name in college but was talked out of it by her acting teacher.
    She is a vegan.
    Her husband, Kenric Green, appeared in an episode of ‘Discovery’ as the father of her character: ‘It’s just such a funny thing to say that my husband is my dad.’
    She was salutatorian of her high school.
    She originally auditioned for the part of Michonne on ‘The Walking Dead’; although another actress was chosen, she impressed showrunner Glen Mazzara enough that he created a role specifically for her.
    She is an ambassador for Stand Up to Cancer.
    She said, ‘I play a strong woman who is very real and also a very vulnerable, well-rounded human being. Women tell me how it's great for their daughters to see a strong black woman on TV.’
