‘The Walking Dead’ Director Greg Nicotero Talks That Funny Porch Scene Between Daryl And Carol

March 04, 2015

“The Walking Dead” director Greg Nicotero revealed that Norman Reedus’ “You look ridiculous!” line in last Sunday’s episode was actually an ad-lib.

“The Walking Dead” actor Norman Reedus revealed in an interview with Entertainment Weekly — published last month — that Daryl would have funny one-liners in the remaining episodes of the show’s Season 5. And in last Sunday’s episode, titled “Remember,” viewers have finally heard one of those much anticipated lines.

After Carol (Melissa McBride) ditched her badass persona in favor of a Stepford-esque housewife during her one-on-one interview with Deanna (Tovah Feldshuh), she stepped out of their group’s house dressed in khakis and a cardigan sweater. As she walked down the sidewalk to go to her new job in Alexandria, Norman yelled, “You look ridiculous!”

Greg Nicotero, who directed the episode, told Entertainment Weekly that Reedus’ line was actually an ad-lib. “When I did the cut, I was like, I’m leaving that in because that is exactly what Daryl would say,” he told the outlet. “And I don’t know if it made it in to the episode or not, but at one point Carol goes, ‘Thank you!’ as she’s walking away.

The 51-year-old SFX and make-up wizard further discussed the scene in an interview with Yahoo TV, saying, “When we shot that scene, we all stood there in shock and looked at Melissa, and like… that’s a tricky thing to pull off, that transformation of a character.”

“We’re so accustomed to spending years watching all of these people dirty, sweaty, covered in blood. [So] when Melissa stepped out the first time, we all sort of [started] laughing,” Nicotero explained. “Even Melissa was like, ‘This is so silly. How are we going to pull this off?'”

Nicotero continued, “When we did the first couple of takes, Norman was just giggling and laughing at how ludicrous this whole idea of Carol dressing up as a soccer mom was. Every time I watch that scene, and especially the way Norman looks up at her and then looks back down, he’s like ‘Pfft.’ He does that great thing. Norman always does.”

“I love Norman and Melissa, and they’re both such genuine performers that just adding that little flair takes it to such a great place,” he said.

“The Walking Dead’s” next episode titled “Forget” airs Sunday, March 8, at 9:00 p.m. on AMC.

Norman Reedus Talks Daryl Dixon’s Possible Romance With Melissa McBride’s Carol Peletier; ‘The Walking Dead’ Star Says ‘I Don’t Want To See It Coming’

February 13, 2015

With the return of “The Walking Dead” season 5, fans have been waiting to hear more about Norman Reedus’s Daryl Dixon. Will romance bloom between Daryl and Melissa McBride’s Carol Peletier?

In an recent interview with Entertainment Weekly, “The Walking Dead” season 5 star Norman Reedus shares his thoughts about Daryl Dixon’s romantic relationship, and the possibility that Carol Peletier might be on the receiving end.

Norman Reedus said, “I think if he’s going to zero in on one, it’s going to happen by accident, and he’s not going to be the one zeroing in first.” He continued, “Then he’ll just stay with her. I think he’s like an eagle-once they start flying together, they’ll always fly together.”

He also compares real life from the possible romantic experience that his character Daryl Dixon might experience. “It’s become such a big deal, who I hook up with [on ‘The Walking Dead’]. In real life, when you hook up with someone and it’s real, you don’t see it coming, so I don’t want to see it coming.”

For the fans who are waiting for romance to begin between Daryl Dixon and Carol Peletier in “The Walking Dead” season 5, this is not good news. Caryl (amalgamation of Carol and Daryl) is the most obvious coupling; from what Norman Reedus has recently pointed out, should there be romance for Daryl Dixon, he doesn’t want it to be as obvious as Carol.

Meanwhile, Dixonne fans (Daryl and Michonne) are still rooting for Danai Gurira’s Michonne to claim Daryl Dixon’s heart. To which Norman Reedus commented in an interview with Daily Beast and said, “She’s a cute girl. I’m not opposed to it.”
