THE WALKING DEAD to Feature Gay Character?
Following hints last week from THE WALKING DEAD creator Robert Kirkman that Daryl Dixon (played by Norman Reedus) may be gay, THE WALKING DEAD writer Scott M. Gimple has told TVLine.com that there will definitely be a gay male character in the future.
While there is a chance that it could just be a new character, it seems that the gay character will be revealed to be Daryl Dixon.
Gimple said, "We know all sorts of things about the characters that we haven't revealed ... [But] we're not holding back information on Daryl's sexuality as any sort of big reveal. The fact that there's still a question as to what Daryl's orientation is in Season 5 absolutely speaks to Daryl's character; he is a very guarded, very closed-off individual in a lot of ways. We have been able to see him ever so slowly open up and show the other characters aspect by aspect as to what makes him tick. That's been a very satisfying journey for all of us on the creative side to portray. [And] he's still on that journey. This is a character who is going to continue to grow closer to the other characters...[and] let his guard down, and let them see just who he is, in every way."
No word yet on when said gay character will be introduced.
