Norman Reedus already spoke eloquently to us about the evolution of Daryl Dixon throughout the zombie apocalypse on The Walking Dead. It was thoughtful and moving. But what if the zombie apocalypse had never happened? We asked Reedus what he thinks Daryl would be up to if life as they knew it had never changed. And judging by his answer, maybe this whole killer plague has not have been such a bad thing for Mr. Dixon after all. READ FULL STORY

Nobody puts baby in a corner, and nobody puts Daryl Dixon in a train car. So how does Daryl feel about the predicament he’s in when season 5 of The Walking Dead kicks off Oct. 12 on AMC? We went and asked the man who plays him, Norman Reedus. READ FULL STORY
The premiere of The Walking Dead‘s fifth season is still over a month away, but fans are already wondering: Just how dangerous will it be for our four favorite survivors?
EW spoke with some of the show’s stars to coincide with The Walking Dead cover shoot to discuss some of season four’s biggest moments and what’s in store when season 5 premieres on Oct. 12.
When we showed you the first exclusive image of Daryl Dixon from season 5 of The Walking Dead, he appeared to be in a bit of a bind…literally, in fact, seeing as how he was gagged and bound. Let’s just say that many fans of the crossbow-wielding warrior (played by Norman Reedus) were less than pleased to see their main man in such peril. Now we have a brand new exclusive gallery shot from the upcoming season (which premieres Oct. 12 on AMC), and this one should have Reedus Nation breathing a bit easier. Just click on the “Full Size” magnifying glass tab above to see the full picture in all of its glory. READ FULL STORY
Shane. Dale. Lori. Merle. Andrea… Need we go on? No character on The Walking Dead is ever safe. That much has been proven. But how would the still-living cast members like to see their characters go if and when their time comes? Well, there’s only one way to find out. Ask them. So I did. Here’s how many of The Walking Dead actors see their final moments on the show.
[NOTE & SPOILER ALERT: Some of these characters have already died in the comic book on which the show is based. A few of the actors may reference that, so if you do not want any clues as to who has died in the comic, then stop reading right now. But also keep in mind that the TV version often changes things dramatically. For instance, Hershel’s beheading at the prison actually happened to a different character in the comic that is still alive and well on the TV show. So things don’t always match up.] Okay, spoiler alert over. Now, let’s find out how the cast would like their various demises to go down. Also note that Norman Reedus kind of cheats on his answer. CHEATER! READ FULL STORY
The Walking Dead cast is like one big happy family. But that doesn’t mean these folks are above having some fun at each other’s expense. Just take our Entertainment Weekly Walking Dead cover shoot, for example. During a hot summer day on the Terminus set — where the shoot took place — we asked the actors to tell us something about Andrew Lincoln that he doesn’t want anyone to know. We weren’t sure if they would answer that. After all, Andrew Lincoln is a swell guy! Everyone loves Andrew Lincoln! Would they really betray his trust like that? It turns out they were all too happy to comply.
Check out Norman Reedus, Lauren Cohan, Steven Yeun, and Danai Gurira totally selling their costar out. Is what they say true, or just all made up in an effort to further embarrass the man who plays Rick Grimes? Watch the video below and judge for yourself.

'The Walking Dead' cast and producers promise that 'every single thing in the first episode is a spoiler'
Fans have been weighing in with their thoughts about the new Walking Dead season 5 trailer that debuted at Comic-Con in San Diego, but what about the cast and producers themselves? What do they have to say about it? After the awesome experience of watching them watch it on a monitor while backstage at their panel, I asked Team Walking Dead their thoughts later when they stopped by the Entertainment Weekly Radio (SiriusXM, channel 105) studio at the convention, and now you can hear the entire conversation by clicking on the audio player icon below.
Joining us were none other than cast members Norman Reedus, Steven Yeun, Lauren Cohan, Danai Gurira, and Michael Cudlitz, along with executive producer Scott M. Gimple and co-executive producer Denise Huth. So what do they make of the clip, in which, according to Cudlitz, “it certainly looks like we’re heading to DC” to find a cure for the zombie outbreak? It seems the cast has been getting a kick listening to fans hypothesize as to what it all means. “The theories are fantastic,” says Gurira. READ FULL STORY
Norman Reedus is a Comic-Con favorite. But he loves the convention as much as the convention loves him. In fact, The Walking Dead star has been known to do some celebrity stalking himself. “I took a selfie with Anthony Bourdain and the lead dude from Yo Gabba Gabba!,” says Reedus of one of his favorite Comic-Con encounters. “I was like, this is the best moment ever!” But wait, did Bourdain and “lead dude from Yo Gabba Gabba!” (also known as DJ Lance Rock) even know who Reedus was? “The Yo Gabba Gabba! guy, he knew. Anthony Bourdain kind of looked at me like, what the hell are you doing right now? But I’m a huge fan of Anthony Bourdain. If I didn’t have this job as Daryl Dixon, I would definitely want his job.”
Of course, there are scores upon scores of fans who would kill to get up close and personal with Reedus. But that can be a bit of a problem for when the star wants to go walk the convention floor. To try to an evade prying eyes, Reedus has employed a variety of costumes over the years so he can mingle undetected with even the most hardcore fans. He shared one such story about going incognito with a Walking Dead castmate. READ FULL STORY
Last week we brought you an exclusive photo from season 5 of The Walking Dead that showed Daryl Dixon gagged and bound. No doubt that sent shivers down the spines among fans of Dixon and the man who plays him, Norman Reedus. Of course, as a fan favorite, Daryl would seem to be the last person the show would ever dream of killing off. However, Reedus did actually think his number was being called near the end of season 4 when Walking Dead creator Robert Kirkman…well, called his number. READ FULL STORY
“If Daryl dies, we riot” has been a familiar refrain from fans of the crossbow-wielding Daryl Dixon. That means Walking Dead creator Robert Kirkman could have a melee on his hands if he does indeed off Daryl as he promised on Entertainment Weekly Radio (although we’re pretty sure he was kidding). Regardless, Dixon devotees are likely to gasp at this exclusive new image from season 5 of the zombie drama, which returns in October on AMC. (Click on the Full Size magnifying tab to view the full image in all of its high resolution glory.)
In it, we see a bloodied and bruised Daryl, who has also been gagged and bound…and not in a sexy way as legions of ladies no doubt dream about on a daily basis. (Or maybe this is considered sexy. I have no idea. People are into some freaky stuff.) READ FULL STORY
The Walking Dead is well into filming on season 5 of the apocalyptic zombie drama, so we figured it was time to check in and see how things were going down on the Georgia set. We dialed up our main man Norman Reedus to get a feel for the vibe down there, and Reedus is definitely pumped about what has transpired so far. “These scripts are the best scripts so far, and I’m really just excited to be back at it,” says the man who plays Daryl Dixon. “There are a lot of characters right now, so there are a lot of really different personalities on set. And it’s super interesting, everyone’s really bringing it. It’s going great. It’s so dynamic because it’s so fast-paced and so complicated. It’s great to be back.” READ FULL STORY
