There has been a lot of talk recently about how television shows are becoming bigger and better than movies, with more and more Hollywood stars deciding to take roles in television shows rather than movies. One of the biggest and best television shows around at the moment is the hit AMC zombie series The Walking Dead, which has brought us some brilliant characters over the years.
One of the most popular characters on The Walking Dead would have to be Daryl, who is played by the very talented actor Norman Reedus. We have seen some very interesting story lines with Daryl, where he has almost had a romance with Carol, as well as with Beth towards the end of the last season. However, it has now been claimed that we could see Daryl turning gay.
Showrunner Robert Kirkman explained, "All I can say is that it’s been discussed. We have very specific ideas about Daryl’s sexuality (or the seeming lack thereof), and if there’s ever a quiet period in the show where he’s not consistently distracted by crossbowing...we’ll tackle it in the show." As for whether AMC would allow it, Robert added, "For the record, they absolutely would."
Fans of The Walking Dead do not have too much longer to wait to see Norman Reedus back on our screens as Daryl Dixon, along with the rest of the cast, in the new season of the show, as The Walking Dead season five premiere is set to air on AMC on Sunday, October 12.
Do you think The Walking Dead should make Daryl Dixon gay?
