Norman Reedus talks ‘Walking Dead’ season 7, asked who Negan kills

While promoting his new unscripted motorcycle series, Ride with Norman Reedus, debuts June 12 on AMC, Reedus has to address the season 6 cliffhanger of The Walking Dead. He begins by answering to how often he’s been asked who dies.

“Probably about a zillion times,” Reedus said to Entertainment Weekly Radio (SiriusXM, channel 105). “Like, all the time.”

Even if he “could” tell fans, Reedus doesn’t sound like a likely source of inside info.

“I don’t like spoilers, to be honest, I don’t want people to tell me the ending to the movie when we sit down in a movie theater. I don’t like them, so I don’t do them. I like the enthusiasm behind everyone wanting to know, but it’s a good feeling to have that enthusiasm, so let’s hold onto it.”

Moreover, Reedus was shocked at the fan outrage over concealing identity of Negan (Jeffrey Dean Morgan) and Lucille’s victim.

“They’re still talking about it,” he notes. “I’ve been making art for a long time and you want people to talk. Sometimes you make something just to get people to talk. The fact that people are still talking is a huge compliment to how that episode was executed and the acting in it and the writing of it. That’s a good thing. Talk sometimes its good. I know we all have phones and everything is instant gratification now. I get it. I like that too. I like the controversy, to be honest. For that many people to be that invested in that show and freaking out, I think it’s great.”

Reedus can’t believe the fan attacks on showrunner Scott Gimple and creator Robert Kirkman.

Those poor guys,” laughs Reedus. “That’s another level of ‘What the f—?’ Those guys get hammered. Me, I can be like, ‘Oh, it’s great!’ I can kinda get away with it because I don’t write it and I don’t know everything that is going to happen, but those poor guys. They bust their ass to give you this entertainment and pour their hearts on the line and then they just get ‘What the f—, Scott Gimple? How could you do this to me!’”

    I was super pissed about the cliff hanger. However, i think it was genius. We will all be tuning in to find out who it was. We have yet to quit talking about it. It will be one, if not the, biggest episodes of the series. I just hope they realize they have a lot to live up to. It needs to be a main character to live up to the hype at this point.
