What is going to happen in season 6 of OITNB?:

Other than OITNB, you’re also working on music. What can you share about your new project?
I am working on music right now. I can share that my new single came out May 25 “La Hora Loca.” I’m really excited about my music, it’s always been my first love. I am really excited about taking my career into the next level through music.”
We look forward to seeing you on OITNB. What other projects do you have coming up?
I just filmed a movie in New Mexico called All the World is Sleeping. I get to play a character that’s fun, very different than Flaca. I have my own production company called Unspoken Productions and I signed myself to Unspoken Records. I am pretty much making music for my own movies.

The Walking Dead star Danai Gurira is featured in the June 2018 issue of EBONY Magazine.
From the digital issue:
At 40, Danai Gurira best known for her starring roles in Black Panther–the Blockbuster Marvel film and AMC’s The Walking Dead, has embarked on one long and successful journey over the past two years. Gurira’s award-winning plays In Continuum, The Convert, and Eclipsed–have set her apart from her peers. “I think excellence is one of the best forms of building your reputation,” she says.
The Iowa-born, Zimbabew-reared multihyphenate realizes that her relevance will be in the stories she and her sister scribes tell and not the stories that are written about them. We might assume she is strong because she was brave enough to shave her head for the role as Okoye, the Wakandan general in Black Panther As for her strength, Gurira, the youngest of four, is not quite sure where that comes from.
Gurira is most fulfilled, when she can help little girls who look like her. She thinks of the young women back home in Africa who may not realize that they, too, have permission to dream. “I think of those frills when I kind of beat myself up,” she says. “I think of the little girl in Liberia, Rwanda, Zimbabwe, who will never have the opportunity I’m standing in. The least I can do is do my best for her.”
The Walking Dead returns October 2018 on AMC.
