Will The Walking Dead‘s Daryl Dixon (Norman Reedus) and Carol (Melissa McBride) ever hook up?
“If it does, lucky me. She’s awesome,” Reedus says of the woman who plays Carol, Melissa McBride.
“She’s my favorite actress on the show. I mean, I like them all, but I’ve gotten to work a lot with her and know her vibe. If it happens, it happens. I want it to be awkward when it happens. I want it to be really awkward. I want her to make the first move.”
Why Carol first?
“I don’t think he’s figured out women. What does a relationship look like and how does that work? He never really grew up with a woman in the house, so it’s sort of like foreign creatures to him.”
You mean, like a bug?
Has Daryl ever been in a real relationship? Reedus doesn’t think so.
“Maybe he got together with a couple of locals at one point or something,” says the actor. “But I don’t think he was ever in any sort of serious relationship. So if it happens, great. If it doesn’t, great. I like the fact that we’re two damaged people and we sort of gravitate to each other. I like that. If it happens, right on.”
The Walking Dead: Survival Instinct has gone gold. Reedus posted the first copy made of the video game on his Instagram. Also, his character is featured on the front cover.
