On “The Walking Dead,” Norman Reedus plays bad boy with a heart of gold Daryl Dixon and has so far managed to survive the first four seasons without meeting the grim reaper. Does the cast live in perpetual fear of being fired, or does Reedus get some confidence in the fact that his character is so wildly popular that the producers wouldn’t dare kill him off? That’s just one of the questions we will ask Reedus when he joins us for a live webchat this Thursday (June 12) at 1:00 p.m. PT / 4:00 p.m. ET on Gold Derby’s home page.
Reedus’ on-screen love interest Melissa McBride was just honored with a Critics’ Choice TV Award nomination for her performance this season. What is it like working with McBride, and how much longer will Daryl and Carol be separated on the show?
In Season 3, Reedus got to reunite with his TV brother Merle played by Michael Rooker. Up until that point, Daryl’s main motivation for continuing on was to find Merle, so after Rooker was killed off the show, did Reedus worry that his own character’s storyline was, in a sense, complete?
Unlike other TV shows, the cast of “The Walking Dead” is always changing, with old people getting killed off and new people constantly joining the series. Is there a particular actor or actress that Reedus misses working with more than anyone else?
Daryl found himself in a dire situation at the end of Season 4 as he wound up joining with a group of baddies who were bent on killing Rick (Andrew Lincoln). Does Reedus admire that “The Walking Dead” writers aren’t afraid of switching up the show’s playbook, or does it create constant tension on set?
