Norman Reedus “HATED” Walking Dead Season 7A
No one can really argue that The Walking Dead Season 7A will be remembered as one of the weaker seasons of the infamous series. Not only are the viewers upset, but so are the actors on the show.
The Walking Dead Season 7A was purely designed to showcase Negan and grow the main characters of the show, specifically Rick Grimes and Daryl Dixon. For Norman Reedus who plays Daryl, this meant being locked up most of the season.
Norman Reedus hated filming these first eight episodes.
The actor missed being around the cast as he spent a great deal of time on a different set than everyone else. Daryl was in a few scenes with Dwight and Negan, but only saw the rest of the crew in three other episodes.
“I was in a hole by myself, naked,” confirmed Reedus.
Norman Reedus On Walking Dead Season 7
“It just did not feel right to me. I’d talk to Gimple, and I’d be like, “Man, this sucks. I hate this.” And he’d be like, “You’re supposed to’.” I’m like, “Oh, there you go.” You know what I mean? He was right. It was supposed to suck, and it did suck — for me, anyway. But you know, it just makes coming back together that much more special.”
Reedus definitely had the worst job on The Walking Dead Season 7A.
What’s Next For The Walking Dead
All of the actors are certainly more content with Season 7B than they were with The Walking Dead Season 7A. In regards to the bleakness of the first eight episodes, Reedus said, “I mean, I was saying that about the first half. I think part of that chatter you’re talking about came from me.”
Hopefully, the actors are correct about the second half of the season. It’s been hard for audiences and the actors to deal with Negan’s rule, so we’re all looking forward to seeing Rick and the gang prepare for war.
