Norman Reedus Reveals How 'The Walking Dead' Is Affected By Killing Off Characters

Norman Reedus holds a cherry in his mouth on the cover of EW‘s The Walking Dead preview!

In the mag, the 49-year-old actor spoke about how the show is effected when key characters are killed off.

“The people that started this show, to me, are the heart of the show,” Norman said. “When you lose those key members, it’s such a big blow to the show, and to the fans, and to us that are there. Who’s left? There’s only a few of us left out of all those people. If you wanted to turn it into a totally different show, you get rid of those people. But if you want to hold on to what made the show special, you’ve got to be very careful what you do with those people.”

    the heart of the show are the original characters. their journey, the writers are more focused on this facade of larger than life character bad guys then what the show started off about.

    I agree 100%! I actually stopped watching the show for an entire season when they killed of 2 of the characters I loved and I only started watching it again because I love Jeffrey Dean Morgan and I was told he was doing an awesome job with Negan and just like that I was hooked again, so yes! the actors do make a difference!!!

    That’s exactly why I no longer watch the show. The characters I cared about are all dead.
