Norman Reedus came on “Conan” and talked about Daryl Dixon’s sexuality on “The Walking Dead.” Conan O’Brien asked Reedus about the speculation regarding his character on the show.

“The Walking Dead” Season 5 episodes are currently airing and the survivors are inside Alexandria Safe-Zone. However, fans have been asking Daryl’s sexuality and if he is gay. Norman Reedus mentioned during the interview about a cross-reference.

“There was an interview with Robert Kirkman, and I know you guys cross-reference some of the characters and there is a character named Jesus, who is a real bada**in the book and he said if Daryl is taking that over, is he gonna be gay?” Norman said.

Later, Norman added that when he went to the different comic conventions fans would come up to him and ask about. “The Walking Dead” star recalled that kids would come to him say that they don’t care what is going on as he is awesome.

However, it is not the case with men of Norman’s age. The actor stated that they would feel awkward about it and freak out about Daryl’s sexuality.

Things are different for his female fans. They don’t want Daryl to be gay on “The Walking Dead.” However, Norman Reedus welcomed the idea and stated that he will do if the story asks for it.

“If that is the story they would give me, I would rock that story. I am not afraid,” Norman Reedus said on “Conan.”

It looks like Norman is ready to do anything that the story demands. Share your reactions about this angle in the section below.
