Reunited and it feels so good… at least as good as anything can feel in the zombie apocalypse. Daryl and Carol were back together, although not for long. Daryl was finally alerted to Carol’s presence after Richard brought him in on a plan to frame Carol for the killing of some Saviors, leading to retaliation that would result in Carol’s death and spur Ezekiel into action.
During the midseason premiere of The Walking Dead, Daryl Dixon (Norman Reedus) got left behind at the Kingdom for safekeeping while he’s on the run from the Saviors. He doesn’t know it yet, but he’s about to be reunited with Carol Peletier (Melissa McBride), his best friend in the whole wide world who hasn’t already been killed.
Norman Reedus was not a happy camper during the filming of the first half of The Walking Dead’s seventh season. But that’s okay, because it turns out he wasn’t supposed to be happy about it. We spoke to Reedus about some of the fan complaints about the first eight episodes, and then he unloaded with some complaints of his own, even revealing that he took those complaints straight to showrunner Scott M. Gimple.
“Daryl.” If anyone ever doubted the strength of The Walking Dead’s Daryl Dixon (Norman Reedus), that doubt was erased with that very word. All Daryl had to do was pledge his loyalty by saying “I’m Negan” in exchange for avoiding further torture and instead becoming a top lieutenant in Negan’s army while getting all the perks and benefits that come with it. But when the time came to choose his fate, Daryl refused, citing his own name instead before being taken back to his cell.
It was big statement in a big episode for Daryl. EW spoke to Reedus to get his take on everything from that critical choice to that surprising nude scene. EW also asked the actor about his character’s emotional breakdown after viewing that gruesome Polaroid and Daryl’s unique relationship with his tormentor, Dwight.
After the cliffhanger ending of Season Six, it seemed an awfully long wait for the return of The Walking Dead. With the new season fast approaching, we were excited to hear from the cast as they reveal what they think about returning to the series after such a traumatic ending to the last season, how they feel about Negan, and speculate on what will happen to Rick and the group as the new series starts.
Over the next few days, we’ll share with you some of what the cast can reveal about Season 7 of The Walking Dead.
Today we hear from Andrew Lincoln (Rick Grimes), and Norman Reedus (Daryl).
On “The Walking Dead,” Daryl Dixon often can be found on a motorcycle, speeding toward or away from one zombie adventure after another.
It’s a tendency shared by the man who plays him, minus the zombies. Norman Reedus has ridden motorcycles since childhood and AMC, which broadcasts “Walking Dead,” has channeled his enthusiasm into “Ride With Norman Reedus,” a motorcycle travel series making its debut on June 12. An AMC executive pitched the idea and Mr. Reedus said yes “before he could change his mind,” he recalled recently. “It’s a dream job.”
Norman Reedus is a man of many talents. He’s a noted zombie slayer, an accomplished photographer, and, as we’ll see on his new AMC show Ride, a badass, motherfuckin’ motorcycle man. And so, we thought he just might be the best and brightest addition to our Esquire Intern roster. Here’s what happened.
You won’t have to wait long to see Norman Reedus back on AMC as his new unscripted motorcycle series, Ride with Norman Reedus, debuts June 12 on the network, but you will have to wait another four-and-a-half months to see if Daryl Dixon survived that season 6 cliffhanger of The Walking Dead.
Some of the biggest stars showed up to America’s Red Nose Day on Thursday (May 26) but the cast of The Walking Dead spoofing the Star Wars Holiday Special has got to be the best of the bunch.
The comedy sketch opens with Andrew Lincoln (Rick) and Norman Reedus (Daryl) hanging out during some downtime on the set of the hit zombie drama when their “assistant” (aka Josh McDermitt, who plays Eugene on the show) delivers their smoothies.
The incredibly talented Norman Reedus and Diane Kruger have teamed up on-screen in the new drama Sky. The duo stopped by BuzzFeed NY to chat all about the new film, and after things got real in their one-on-one interview with each other, they played a little round of Never Have I Ever. Here’s what we learned.
