The Walking Dead TV series has a lot to live up to when creating content based on the comic source material. The Walking Dead comic series is loved by so many, and it’s what got this massive universe started to begin with. Changing anything for the TV series will get some form of scrutiny. Some events and people have missed the mark on the TV show, but some have ended up far surpassing the goodness the comics contain.
The Walking Dead has delivered some incredible episodes over the course of ten seasons and 150 episodes, but “Splinter” will go down as one of the best depictions of what it’s like when a person’s past and present collide. In episode 1020, Paola Lazaro delivers a stunning performance as Princess, and we were fortunate to be able to chat with her about the episode.
Princess, a.k.a. Juanita Sanchez (Paola Lázaro) on The Walking Dead is a weird character. First introduced in issue #171 of the comic book series by Robert Kirkman and Charlie Adlard, and Season 10, Episode 14 of the AMC show, Princess is the manic pixie dream girl of the zombie apocalypse. She’s got purple streaked hair, an outrageous pink coat, carries a big gun, wears goggles, and has a tendency to treat everything like a weird joke that only she gets. Even by the standards of a show that once introduced a guy who owned a tiger, Princess is just plain bizarre.
