Danai Gurira wrote a heartfelt goodbye letter to fans of The Walking Dead as she exited the show after eight seasons.

The talented 42-year-old actress took to her Twitter on Wednesday to share a selfie, while dressed as her iconic character Michonne, along with a lengthy letter dedicated to diehards of the AMC series.

She wrote:  ‘Is it possible to feel your heart is broken and overwhelmed with love all at once? Leaving Michonne was one of the hardest things I have ever done. 

‘I am so grateful for the kindness, beauty, and generosity of love that I have received over the last couple days. I have change and grown living in this role which has been one of the greatest privileges of my life to play.’ 

Danai went on to thank the cast and crew including Andrew Lincoln who departed the series in 2018.

Perhaps the most emotional part of the letter came at the end as she thanked the fans for the tributes done for her.

She wrote: ‘Thank you so much for the videos and tributes; for all the messages of love and support. For sharing what Michonne meant to you. 

‘They have enriched me so much during this difficult time in the world. I cannot express my love and gratitude enough.
