Heartthrob Norman Reedus Talks Daryl’s Heartbreak On ‘The Walking Dead’
Reedus, reveals how he used the loss of his father to prep for a scene for The Walking Dead season 2 finale. On record to be one of the show’s most heartbreaking scenes, as Daryl Dixon (Reedus) finds the brother he had finally been reunited with Merle — hunched over as a zombie. Not only did Daryl find his older brother dead (or undead, as it were) but he then had to rekill him once again, to put him out of his zombie misery.
When Reedus was asked what it was like working alongside Michael Rooker (Merle) Redus tells Entertainment weekly “I was bummed to see Rooker go. He’s such a strong character and such a good actor. He brought so much to the show so I was bummed to see him leave” Reedus adds “I would have liked to have explored that relationship a bit more. And he’s always fun to play scenes with so I was bummed about that. I’m bummed every time someone leaves the show, to be honest.” Tune in for the Season 3 Finale this Sunday 9/8c on AMC.
