Norman Reedus interviewed by GQ Magazine, Oct ‘14 issue
NORMAN REEDUS turns up on his motorbike at a restaurant in the countryside of Atlanta, not far from where he lives while The Walking Dead is shot. Helmet off, he looks barely a quick rinse different from his character on the show, Daryl Dixon. “I’m so tired,” he says. “We wrapped this morning at 8:30a.m.” He says he spent the night “running for my life… stalking and running,” though he also took time to Instagram a photo of the full moon about the Georgia night forest.
Often when you talk to actors on successful TV series, you can sense, however much they appreciate the success, how trapped they feel. But Reedus exudes a sense of liberation— as though this experience has turned out to be exactly what he needed to invigorate not only his career but his life. Of this forthcoming season, he is excited but a little coy, as protocol demands. “One of the best things about this show is that it constantly keeps moving and constantly keeps evolving into something else,” he says.
Still, for any viewers troubled by the almost pornographic delight that The Walking Dead seems to take from lingering close-ups of a bewildering variety of brain-crushing zombie homicides, don’t hold out for respite any time soon: “You’d be surprised the creative ways they come up with doing stuff that you haven’t seen before. There’s some new stuff I would never have thought of. It’s pretty hard-core.”
Among the still-living, the taciturn, troubled, crossbow-wielding Dixon has become the show’s most beguiling character. Reedus once mentioned that he tried to play Dixon as if he were a virgin and though he partly backtracks now—“I don’t know if it’s like a virgin, but it’s definitely somebody that’s not got game”—it does remind him of one road never taken. At a party after the show’s first season, he ran into that season’s showrunner Frank Darabont. “He said, ‘I’ve got an idea for Daryl. He’s gay. Would you be interested in that?’ I was like, ‘Let me hear you out.’ He said, ‘Well, he’s prison gay—like, you’ll catch him looking at a member of the same sex, but if you mention it to him, he’ll just stab you and be like what the fuck?—he will never admit it.’ I was like, ‘That’ll blow minds—let’s do that.’ And he said, ‘I knew I hired you for a reason.’”
But it was not to be—by the next season, Darabont had been fired. “Had nothing to do with that,” Reedus assures me. So he was left to find his own path.
