Morrissey takes boos as compliment

David Morrissey has revealed fans of The Walking Dead boo him, but he takes it as a compliment.

The British actor plays villain The Governor in the hit zombie series, and finds he gets recognised all over the world now.

David admitted: "The Walking Dead really has introduced me to a massive fan base all over the world. It's one of the biggest shows on TV.

"My fan base in America has really grown, and I love that - they're very vocal fans, and amazing and I find it so heart-warming to be amongst them - even though they boo me because I'm the villain! But that means I'm doing a good job.

"I'm on Twitter so I get messages from South America and the Far East, Europe and everywhere, all over the world.

"It's a show that really does punch large and I'm very proud to be associated with. I love being on The Walking Dead, I love playing The Governor and it's given me such a great connection with the public."

The last episode of season four of the show saw The Governor shot in the head, but David refuses to confirm or deny if he will appear in season five next year.

He teased: "Something happened to him. I feel like a shady politician where I can't confirm and I can't deny anything.

"Certainly, bad things befell him at the end of the last episode but we just have to wait and see..."

David is back on our screens in The 7.39, starting Monday January 6 on BBC One.
