During an appearance on Live with Kelly and Michael on Friday, Norman Reedus was asked by Kelly if he ever got afraid that his character was going to get killed off on The Walking Dead. “Every script,” replied Reedus. “They’ve made it very clear that no one’s safe on the show. But I’d be lying, we’d all be lying, if we didn’t say we got the scripts and thumbed to the end to see if we were alive.”
When talking about the fans, Reedus revealed that a lot of fans have tattoos of him or his signature, which prompted Michael to ask which body parts he had autographed. “I’ve pretty much covered the whole body I think by now,” said Reedus. “Some of the tattoos, they are a complete back. It’s flattering.”
When asked if his character would find romance, Reedus said, “I don’t know. I’m very hesitant. I’m not really allowed to tell you, and I pretty much feel like every conversation is tracked by AMC from space.”
Reedus added, “The thing about that is that I really want to play him sort of… he’s not the type of guy that’s going to throw you up against a tree in the moonlight. I want him to be as awkward as possible. So once that happens, it happens, you can’t go backwards. So I really want the characters to earn the [romance].”
The Walking Dead airs on Sunday nights at 9 PM ET on AMC.
