The Walking Dead: Norman Reedus On Saying Goodbye To Cast Members

For the cast and crew of The Walking Dead, returning to the set in May was bitter sweet. The family was back together to start shooting the show's seventh season but not for long. At least one member of the group was cut down to cap Season 6 and their identity will be revealed when Season 7 begins.

For the cast and crew, the days on set were darker than any before. Glenn actor Steven Yeun told it was "a bummer" to have to start the season in such a way. Aaron actor Ross Marquand says it is "tough to move on to a new chapter." Now, has heard from the fan-favorite actor of the series, Daryl Dixon's Norman Reedus.

"It's hard. It's hard always to say goodbye to people on the show," Reedus said. "Some characters it's harder to say goodbye to than others."

"They're all good friends of ours. It's always hard but, when it's certain characters, it's really hard."

Many suspect that more than one character will bow out before the Season 7 premiere comes to a close. Speculation on the honor of meeting Lucille going to Daryl began a couple of weeks ago when the first clip from Season 7 showing his blanket front and center with the bashed remains of a victim's skull.


However, we all know the death rightfully belongs to Glenn Rhee based on the events of issue #100 of Robert Kirkman's The Walking Dead comics. Given executive producer Greg Nicotero's comments regarding how closely the series will follow the source material this year, Daryl might manage to sneak of out the line-up as Glenn meets his demise.

The Walking Dead returns for its seventh season on October 23 at 9 p.m. ET on AMC. For complete coverage and insider info all season long, follow @BrandonDavisBD on Twitter.
