Final season of The Strolling Lifeless was a tough one for Daryl Dixon. It seems that it wasn’t a stroll within the park in actual life for actor Norman Reedus both. Whereas the beatings and torture weren’t actual, he was legitimately with out garments for these scenes wherein he appeared bare. Reedus defined the distinctive expertise of being bare on The Strolling Lifeless, saying this:
It was actual. The factor is, they offer you this little sock to put on. You’re feeling weirder with the sock on. . . . , I did a film in a bathe they usually gave me one to put on, and in the midst of the take, I simply ripped it off and threw it on the director’s head, as a result of I used to be like, ‘That is ridiculous.’ However on The Strolling Lifeless, I got here out in a bathrobe and our poor digital camera crew are all proper right here, and I simply dropped the gown and I used to be butt bare. All of them type of, like they had been watching Wimbledon, they only all type of appeared to the left.
Sadly, the awkwardness did not finish there for the Strolling Lifeless crew. As a result of Norman Reedus wasn’t truly being tortured or held captive by Negan, a make-up artist then needed to step in and “soiled” him. This meant getting up shut and private with Daryl’s man enterprise and different delicate areas of his physique, which is understandably uncomfortable. Whereas that was occurring, there was additionally one other crew member whose activity was as “focus puller”. This meant guaranteeing the picture of Reedus’ bare physique on digital camera was as sharp and as crisp as potential. At this level, one has to wonder if or not Reedus and the crew suffered a sure type of torture themselves throughout the filming course of.
As for the bizarre sock Norman Reedus declined to put on, he informed Jimmy Kimmel he wasn’t given an precise sock to cowl himself with. As an alternative, The Strolling Lifeless actor says it is extra of a pantyhose-like materials, and you could most likely purchase it on Amazon. Because it seems, you’ll be able to certainly discover one on Amazon in case you seek for the time period “modesty pouch.” To Reedus’ credit score, they do not seem all that snug.
Norman Reedus’ bare romp got here at a bizarre time throughout the present, because the actor has said that Season 7 was rough for him on account of not filming along with his co-stars for fairly just a few episodes. Maybe now he is glad a bulk of the regulars weren’t readily available to see him within the buff, though in his interview he appears extra embarrassed for individuals who noticed him bare than he does for being bare! I suppose if Norman Reedus wasn’t assured, he would not be proper for the function of Daryl.
