Star of The Walking Dead series, David Morrissey, is set to give a talk at the University of Chichester.

The award-winning actor and director will take centre stage on Tuesday, March 7, as part of the launch of the institution’s new creative and digital technologies courses.

Mr Morrissey, who has also appeared in Doctor Who, will be speaking about the role of the governor on the apocalyptic US show and taking the lead in recent BBC drama The Missing.

He will also talk about his on-stage career with the Royal Shakespeare Company and, as a director, receiving a BAFTA nomination for 2004 film Passer-By.

The talk has been organised as part of the launch of the university’s creative and digital technologies degrees which are intending to bring stars of the big and small screens to Chichester to speak with its students.

Mr Morrissey will be speaking with Dr Adam Locks, of the Department of Creative and Digital Technologies, before taking questions from the audience.

Dr Locks said: “The governor is coming to Chichester.

“It is an enormous privilege to welcome David to our university to speak about his successes not just in the UK but state-side and across the globe.

“His unforgettable performances in some of the world’s most popular shows characterise his accomplishments in film and television and he is the perfect figure to inspire young filmmakers, our students, and the creative communities of Chichester and Bognor Regis.”

The event, which starts at 5.30pm, is free for the public as well as staff and students but seats must be reserved in advance by contacting Tracy Vine at

It will be held in the ShowRoom on the University’s Bishop Otter campus in Chichester.
