"The Walking Dead" star Norman Reedus talked about his acting career and his road to the popular zombie television series. According to Hypable.com on March 16, Reedus said he really appreciates the chance to star in "Boondock Saints," which he fells led him to getting the job on "The Walking Dead."
"Boondock Saints" starred Reedus and Sean Patrick Flannery as two Irish brothers who took up arms to help protect their close knit Irish Catholic neighborhood. The movie has become a cult favorite, and it almost required viewing when Saint Patrick's Day rolls around each year.
Reedus said that he feels "Boondock Saints" was a key moment in his life and that it was that performance that led him to his role as Daryl Dixon in "The Walking Dead."
He also revealed in the interview that he has high hopes that Daryl survives to the end of the show, saying he wants to be the last man standing by the end. He said that he hopes fans feel the same because he wants to portray Daryl as a character who doesn't just fight, but shows there is a reason why he fights.
Finally, he admitted that he has been begging Robert Kirkman to put him in the comic books, since his character is unique to the television series. However, he joked that if he keeps asking, Kirkman will just beat him up.
"The Walking Dead" airs on Sunday nights at 9 p.m. EST on AMC.
