THE WALKING DEAD’S Norman Reedus has finally teased the possibilty of a Carol Peletier and Daryl Dixon romance, admitting there’s a “spark”.


In episode 10 of season seven, the pair were reunited following Daryl’s escape from the Sanctuary which left viewers in tears, including the actors themselves.

Speaking about filming the emotional scene, Norman revealed that he broke down: “I cried like a baby, everyone cried… All I did this season was cry all of the time. I used to be so tough, what happened?”

He went on to hint that while his character may not have hooked up with Carol (Melissa McBride), there is still time for the pair to start a romance.

“There’s a definitely a spark of a relationship there,” he teased. “I can’t tell you other stuff or if it’s going to happen or if it has already happened though.

“I definitely like doing scenes with her and there’s a lot of Melissa in those scenes and there’s a lot of Norman in those scenes.”

The actor went on to say that he found filming the first half season seven alone difficult and missed his friends on set.

“It was a hard first half for all of the actors because we’re all used to this core group being together and fighting together and dying together,” he commented.

But the 48-year-old insisted that it was essential that Daryl was separated from the Alexandrians and new communities were introduced to the series.

“You had to separate those characters to tell a bigger story,” Norman said on the London stop of The Walking Dead Euro Tour. “And there’s a lot of stories that have to be told in the comic books and there’s a lot of people.

"It’s been c****y for us, but there’s a light at the end of the tunnel.”

Director Greg Nicotero agreed and responded to recent criticism that the series had not spent enough time focussing on Alexandria, explaining: “We’ve been on air for seven years now… we have an obligation to keep it fresh.

"If everything took place in Alexandria and if it stayed the same all of the time people would start getting fatigued by it. So we have an obligation to change it up by introducing new worlds and introducing new characters.”
