Following the midseason finale of The Walking Dead, show creator Robert Kirkman addressed the sexuality of the swoon-worthy, bow-wielding, motorcycle-straddling, walker-killing bad ass that is Daryl Dixon.
During his appearance on The Talking Dead, Kirkman settled all the speculation (some of which he helped fuel back in August) from an army of fans of the show that Dixon, portrayed by Norman Reedus, might be gay.
In “The Walking Dead” letters column in the old comic book that I do, there was a question that made me mention that there was a possibility early on about making Daryl Dixon’s character gay and it caused quite a hubbub online. I just wanted to make it clear that I was saying the possibility is there and I would’ve been fine with it, the network would have been fine with it, but we ultimately didn’t do that. I can make it official, Daryl Dixon is actually straight.”
