Norman Reedus is known for his badass character, Daryl Dixon. The actor has played the crossbow-wielding character in The Walking Dead since it began in 2010. He has made a personality with Dixon of being a badass zombie hunter. Reedus is in the spotlight as his new series, The Walking Dead: Daryl Dixon, made its way on AMC. It marked the first spin-off series of The Walking Dead.

As the show made its way to fans, the co-stars of the spin-off series shared their fears about working with the 54-year-old. The stars revealed they were sacred by the intimidating’ on-screen badass Reedus.

Louis Puech Scigliuzzi, who plays Laurent in the new AMC series, revealed how he didn’t know the actor when they first met. He revealed meeting the actor during the audition and how kind he was despite being famous. In an interview with DailyMail, Scigliuzzi said,

“So, I think it was the third time I went there to try out and I saw Norman. I didn’t really know who he was at the time. But I knew my dad did. And he was really kind to me and we spoke for a couple of hours. And you know, Norman is intimidating, he’s this badass guy, you wouldn’t like to mess with him, but he’s actually so cool.”

The co-star of the 54-year-old compared him to a marshmallow- crispy on the outside and soft on the inside. Romain Levi, who plays Codron in the new series agreed with Scigliuzzi and revealed he is a big fan of Reedus. He also called the actor a kind person. According to DailyMail, Levi said,

“Norman deserves so much where he is right now. He is such a professional actor, such a brilliant actor, he’s amazing and beautiful human being. So, yes, totally deserved in my opinion.”

Other stars like Anne Charrier and a few more agreed with their co-stars and claimed Norman Reedus is completely opposite of Daryl Dixon as the 54-year-old is an easygoing person.
