‘Walking Dead’ season 5: Norman Reedus on Beth’s death, effects on group

Norman Reedus’ Daryl has endured his fair share of loss during his journey on AMC’s The Walking Dead. Now, the loss of Beth in the mid-season finale seems to present another change for the character and the group.

“I think it puts him into a depression,” Reedus told The Hollywood Reporter. “Sophia was like hope. You remember Glenn saying, ‘This is Sophia!’ It was different. She was the bright hope of the future. It was an honest and true person.”

Beth’s death will have a major impact on everyone in Rick’s band of survivors, giving a much-needed larger storyline to her older sister, Maggie (Lauren Cohan), and her husband, Glenn (Steven Yeun), as well as Daryl, Carol and Noah (Tyler Jesse Williams), the man for whom Beth effectively gave her life.

“Beth’s death is like Sophia’s; she sings songs and was always hopeful,” Reedus said. “Of course she tried to kill herself at one point, but besides that, for the most part, she was this sweet songbird, and that represents a part of humanity that you don’t see anymore. So when you put that candle out, it goes dark for everyone.”

The Walking Dead returns for the second half of its fifth season Feb. 8 on AMC.
