Norman Reedus, who plays fan favourite redneck badass Daryl Dixon in The Walking Dead, lashed out to Entertainment Weekly about fans who criticised The Walking Dead Season 2, saying “If we killed a zillion zombies last season everyone would say, ‘There’s no storyline, they don’t talk enough’ – so fuck ’em!
“I’ve been trying to get into Game Of Thrones. I can’t tell if it’s the future or the past, but those motherfuckers talk the whole time. Do I gotta bitch about it, or am I going to watch it and enjoy? I’m going to watch it and enjoy.”
Despite his hardline stance against critics of the show, Reedus asserts that The Walking Dead Season 3 will seriously pick up the pace.
“You have to talk to tell a story – it’s not a cartoon,” he insisted. “The pace this season is definitely amped up. We’re just talking faster.”
The Walking Dead Season 3 will air Friday 19 October 2012 at 10pm on FX. The Walking Dead Season 2 is available to buy on DVD for £25 and on Blu-ray for £28.99 from Amazon.co.uk
