'The Walking Dead' Creator Coyly Addresses Daryl Dixon's Sexuality


Robert Kirkman plays coy when asked if Daryl might be gay, saying that 'it's been discussed' and will be tackled during 'a quiet period' on the show.

"The Walking Dead" creator Robert Kirkman suggests that Daryl Dixon might be gay. According to Comicbook.com, the comic book writer addressed speculation about the character's sexuality in the letter section of the "The Walking Dead" comic book issue No. 130, which was released on Wednesday, August 13.

"All I can say is that it's been discussed," he responded to a fan's question if the possibility of Daryl being gay had been considered. "We have very specific ideas about Daryl's sexuality (or the seeming lack thereof), and if there's ever a quiet period in the show where he's not consistently distracted by crossbowing... we'll tackle it in the show."

Daryl, played by Norman Reedus, got close to Beth Greene (Emily Kinney) and Carol Peletier (Melissa McBride) in the past seasons of the show but they didn't hook up yet. At 2014 San Diego Comic-Con, Reedus joked that he was "hoping for a threesome with Melissa and Emily."

Meanwhile, showrunner Scott M. Gimple told Larry King in April about a love interest for Daryl, "I would say that Daryl has already found familial love. If you're talking romantic love, I'm going to say, 'I think so.' "

"The Walking Dead" will return with its fifth season Sunday, October 12 at 9 P.M. ET on AMC.
