"The thing about Daryl is people have been trying to hook him up left and right since episode three," admitted Norman Reedus about reaction to his character on "The Walking Dead" during our recent webchat (watch below). "I don't want to play him as the type of character that just meets somebody and throws a girl up against a tree and in the moonlight has passionate stuff happening. I want to play him like he doesn't know what that means."

Reedus spoke in depth about his character's relationships with Carol (Melissa McBride) and Beth (Emily Kinney) and revealed, "I think out of everyone in the group, [Carol] is definitely one of the top ones that he'll be the most excited to be reunited with. I mean, he's always protected her. He's always had a soft spot for her. And he's always looked after her. I think he recognizes a lot of himself in her. And I think he would do anything to keep her alive and keep her safe."

And what about a possible Daryl and Beth romance? "I didn't see [their relationship] like that. I think that if there were feelings like that, it's because he doesn't quite understand those feelings and he might say the wrong thing or he might be shy to make a move in either direction. I don't think he's like, 'Hey, Beth, come here!'"

--Two deceased "Walking Dead" characters Reedus would want to return to the series are Shane (Jon Bernthal) and Hershel (Scott Wilson). He also reflected on the most rewarding parts of his job, including having the time to create a character like Daryl and working with the Atlanta-based cast and crew.

Reedus is currently filming the fourth episode of Season 5 and admitted that the cast doesn't usually know what they're going to film until just before they shoot it. "Everything's on lockdown. Every time we read something, we all freak out because it's kind of mind-blowing. We were doing episode one and Andrew [Lincoln] and I were sitting right next to each other and I was saying, 'Man, they're never going to air any of this on television. This is too great.'"

Will the characters find a cure for the zombie apocalypse in Season 5? Reedus hinted, "There's talk of a cure definitely in our scripts and there's been episodes aired where they talked about a cure."
