The Walking Dead: Norman Reedus says he ‘couldn’t speak’ after watching the season finale.
Andrew Lincoln was so distraught, it was the only time he’s ever shown up late for work. Lauren Cohan says she didn’t even want to go to work. Josh McDermitt threw his script across the room.
The cast of The Walking Dead has been very vocal with EW about how upsetting the season 6 finale (airing this Sunday at 9 p.m. ET on AMC) was to both read and film, and now another voice has been added to that chorus. This time it’s from someone who not only appears in the finale, but has actually seen it as well. Or at least an early version of it.
“I saw a little rough cut of it,” Norman Reedus, who plays Daryl, tells EW. “And it’s the most hardcore episode we’ve ever shot. I couldn’t speak after I watched it. And, of course, I knew what was happening, and what was going to happen, and who was involved, but I got to tell you, I couldn’t speak for like an hour. And then I just was bombarded with phone calls on my drive home. But that was a rough, rough, rough cut. I will say that it might be the best episode we’ve ever shot of the show.”
“Hardcore” is also a good way to describe Negan, the super-villain from the comic book who will be making his long-awaited arrival. While Negan (and his barbed wire covered baseball bat Lucille) spells bad news for the characters on the show, those who do manage to survive are exited to work with the man playing him, Jeffrey Dean Morgan.
“I’ve known Jeffrey for a long, long time,” says Reedus. “He’s a friend of mine, and I really respect him as an actor. And as a dude, he’s just the best. It’s weird to have such a nice guy playing such an a–hole, you know what I mean? But that’s just the testament to how good he is. So I’m excited to see where he goes and what happens to that guy.”
The episode will also mark the second straight season finale to be helmed by Greg Nicotero, who has become the show’s go-to director for big episodes. “Talk about the inner circle, Greg’s one of those people who’s with you from the get-go,” says Reedus, “from the very start of everything you do to the very end of everything you do. He’s one of my best friends and I’ve watched that guy just blow the hell up. He’s an unstoppable force right now on the show.”
Now we’ll just have to see if anyone can stop Negan.

Norman Reedus has moved from battling walkers on “The Walking Dead” to terrorizing a town on the third season of DreamWorks Animation’s comedy adventure “Turbo FAST,” which arrives Friday on Netflix.
SPINOFF has the exclusive first look at Reedus as Wild Pete, leader of the “roughest, toughest jitterbug posse west of the 5,” blows into town, looking for the new sheriff.
In Season 3 of the television follow-up to the 2013 film, Turbo and the crew quit racing on the track when they become obsessed with a fantasy fracing league, compete in a bobsled race against a Jamaican chicken team, and let a reality show wreak havoc. They face hard-partying toilet fronts, a gang of outlaw crickets, truck-robbing cargo bandits, a perfect poodle moth and more.
In addition to Reedus, the third season features guest stars Ron Perlman, Rachael Macfarlane, Chris Hardwick and Jessica Walters.
Norman Reedus Was Once Asked to Act ‘More Good-Looking … Like the Blond Guy on ‘Lost’’
They said what? Norman Reedus revealed in a new interview with Men’s Fitness that he was once told at an audition to — get this — act more “good-looking.”
“I remember in one of my earliest auditions, the casting director goes, ‘Can you do that a little more good-looking next time? Like the blond guy on Lost,” Reedus said in the March issue of the magazine. “And I was like, ‘What the f–k is that? I … looked up the guy and knew there was no f–king way I was going to get that job. There’s no way I could be that good-looking.”
The “blond guy” in question was Lost star Josh Holloway, who is known for his rugged features — and toothy smile.
Reedus, 47, has his own appeal, of course, but has always marched to the beat of his own drum, having fallen into acting by accident. He detailed to the publication the time he went out drinking with pals in the Hollywood Hills, which led to his stumbling entrance into Hollywood.
“I drank too much and started yelling at people,” he said. “Somebody in that crowd of people approached me about being an actor.”
Reedus will next reprise his role as gravelly voiced Daryl on AMC’s hit series The Walking Dead, which returns on Sunday, February 14.
Asked what fans can expect from his character’s story line, Reedus could only tease, “Chaos.”
“As far as Daryl is concerned, he is pissed off,” Reedus told Entertainment Weekly in a recent interview. “He’s had his stuff taken from him. He put himself out there and trusted some people, and it did backfire on him, and I think he comes back super pissed off. … I mean, I know you know the bad guys that are coming. It’s been announced and well, displayed for everyone to see, but there’s definite surprises coming with all of that, and you know, it’s battle time.”
