The actor has ideas for how he'd like his character to bid farewell to the series.
Whether you love or hate the direction 'The Walking Dead' is going in as of late, with the deaths of major characters and the introduction of one villainous character in particular, there's no denying the show's ability to draw the viewers in each and every season with unpredictable storytelling and compelling character development.
Norman Reedus as Daryl Dixon in 'The Walking Dead'
One of the most beloved characters in the show is Daryl Dixon; a guy who's gone from being quite a stone-hearted survivor of the zombie apocalypse, to somebody who now has a lot of love for those he runs alongside. In melting that icy persona, he's worked his way into the hearts of everybody watching, so to even think about his character dying in the future for some is a step too far.

After a post-apocalyptic dystopia (The Road) and Prohibition-era America (Lawless), Australian director John Hillcoat brings his edgy Wild West sensibilities to this gritty present-day heist thriller. The film is fierce and stylish, and utterly gripping even though there's the nagging sensation that nothing is happening under the surface. Thankfully, the actors add plenty of terrific texture to their characters.
It's set in Atlanta, where Terrell (Chiwetel Ejiofor) leads his crew of thugs (Anthony Mackie, Clifton Collins Jr., Aaron Paul and Norman Reedus) through a riotously dangerous bank robbery. They're working for the cold-hearted Russian mobster Irina (Kate Winslet), who demands an even bigger heist before she'll pay them. Terrell has a child with Irina, so feels like he has little choice in the matter, but his team is made up of unstable hotheads and corrupt cops who have their own opinions. One of the cops also has a new partner in Chris (Casey Affleck), a tenacious good guy who's the nephew of a cynical detective (Woody Harrelson) who's just beginning to crack this case. So the gang decides to distract the city's police force with a triple 9, code for a downed officer, while they carry out their next elaborate robbery. The question is who will take the bullet.
Matt Cook's script is a bundle of mad twists and turns, usually the result of impulsive gang members who act without thinking. The tension is very high, as each person's morality is warped at every turn. All while Chris tries to remain upright in the middle of a storm he doesn't quite understand. Each character is up against a wall, ready to do whatever it takes to survive in a situation that is getting increasingly out of control. And without more subtext, or at least a sense of these people's back-stories, no one on-screen is very likeable.

Lincoln, Reedus and Cohen are all in agreement: season 5 is big. Also, some season 4 spoilers follow
After four seasons of some pretty intense zombie action, The Walking Dead enters its fifth this October. And according to some of the stars of the show, The Walking Dead Season 5 opens with some NSFTV stuff.
For those of you who don't remember what happened at the end of The Walking Dead season 4
"This episode is so disturbing," said actress Lauren Cohan whose character Maggie Greene spent the majority of season 4 fighting to find her husband, Glen. "Some of the the stuff they shot yesterday, I don't know if it'll make it to TV,” she added.
Watch the explosive trailer below.
‘Hustlers’, known in the USA as ‘Pawn Shop Chronicles’, has a brand new trailer featuring the late Paul Walker. The film draws together three plotlines - including meth addicted white supremacists, a man looking for his kidnapped wife, and an Elvis impersonator - centred on one place: the pawn shop; the epicentre for the poor trying to catch a break, and the focus of many a ridiculous situation.
Kevin Rankin and Paul Walker in "Hustlers"
And ridiculous situations are ample in the short peek we get in this new trailer. Walker himself seems to have adopted a ‘trailer trash’ character, bemoaning his partner in crime for swapping their shotgun for money to buy fuel. Where did that shop take place? You guessed it. “Man, how the hell we gonna rob Stanley without a shotgun?” a dishevelled Walker asks. Matt Dillon, Elijah Wood, Brendan Fraser and Norman Reedus (of Walking Dead fame) also star.
The pawn shop is the last resort for most broke people; the place where the impoverished and the desperate sell off their most prized valuables in exchange for an obscenely disproportionate amount of money. In 'Hustlers', it's where three dramatic stories begin; first, a pair of newlyweds find themselves in the shop where, as fate would have it, the groom finds the ring of his first wife who has been missing for some time. While he decides to seek out her kidnapper, a pair of small time criminals are concocting a plan to rob their meth dealer - though their armed robbery plan is inhibited when one of them pawns his shotgun. Meanwhile, one serious-minded Elvis Presley impersonator wishes to pawn his alleged gold Elvis memorabilia as he moves into the town hoping to land a new job in a fairground.

As season 4 ends on a cliffhanger, season 5 promises more action
For those of you that watched the season 4 finale of The Walking Dead on Sunday night (Sunday, March 30) will know that Rick will do almost anything to survive, and that includes biting a man’s neck off. And survival is a motif continued by the first poster for season 5, which features Rick crouching solemnly, holding a gun; the word “survive” emblazoned above him. You can view it right here on AMC's Walking Dead Facebook page.
"Where did you get the watch!?" bellows Rick as he tries to get to the bottom of what's happening at Terminus
It brings us back full circle to the pilot episode and the first season in general, when ideas on the zombie apocalypse were first forming and the walkers seemed like a genuine threat, even attacking alone or in pairs. Nowadays, a single walker doesn’t represent much of a problem for our survivors, but Rick’s goals were simple: find his family, keep them alive. Survival was key.

Executive producer Robert Kirkman discussed where the show is heading after the eventful midseason finale
The Walking Dead came to a temporary close on Sunday, 1 December, night when the midseason finale aired. There was tension, excitement and bloodshed aplenty, as [SPOILER] The Governor met his grizzly end at Michonne's blade and Lilly's gun. But his push on to the prison didn't end in complete failure, as the damage caused by his attack forced Rick and co. from the safety of the prison and into the unknown wilderness.
Things will be very different when the show returns in February
The cliffhanger ending to the most recent episode will have fans of the show begging for more, but those in need of a Walking Dead fix will have to wait until the next year for the show to return. Whilst you wait, series executive producer Robert Kirkman has spoken with The Hollywood Reporter about what you might expect to see next, as he explained where the show is heading now that the possibilities have been thrown wide open with The Governor's death and the abandonment of the prison.
The biggest threat on last night's episode was the flu, not the zombie virus, however the biggest treat of the night was kept until the end
In the latest episode of The Walking Dead, titled 'Internment,' it wasn't just the zombies threatening harmony within the prison walls as a deadly outbreak of influenza was seriously affecting much of the group and tensions were beginning to mount. There was also a huge surprise in store for us as we reached the end of the episode, as we saw the shadowy return of a former favourite. The rest of this story contains spoilers.
The Walking Dead is back on track thanks to 'Internment'
The first thing we notice in 'Internment' is just how many sick people are draining the prisons' supplies from within the quarantine zone. With their numbers rising quick, its up to Hershel to work over time and ensure that he can save as many people as possible. But even for a guy with the patience of a saint, his wits are being run thin as the casualty numbers continue to rise and their conditions only seem to get worse. When we see our first flu-caused fatality die in Glenn's care, all whilst Glenn is having a coughing fit, we get to see just how serious things are. Things got even more worse when the deceased flu victims began to rewake as zombies (naturally) and climbed from their cells into the sick bay, making more zombies and placing Hershel and Glenn in grave danger.
Will you be watching?
The Walking Dead is coming back on air this evening. We’ll give you a moment to contain your excitement. Ok, moment over. The series is back for another eight-week run, in what has been dubbed its “scariest season yet.” On the other hand, some news outlets are predicting a quieter, less action packed season ahead.
Andrew Lincoln's character is set for yet more power struggles this year.
According to the Los Angeles Times, the writers of TWD have chosen to go for a more low-key mood in the first few episodes. After the climactic ending of the last season, the defeat of the maniacal Governor and, of course, Andrea’s demise, Rick (Andrew Lincoln), Daryl (Norman Reedus) and the rest of the survivors are due for some rest and so are the viewers, who were treated to an emotional spectacle at the end of last season, not to mention the culmination of a story arc that had been building for almost two seasons.
