Norman Reedus plays Daryl Dixon

Norman Reedus plays Daryl on The Walking Dead

Who's he? Norman Reedus plays Daryl Dixon.

What's Daryl's back story? His racist brother Merle was left for dead by the other survivors in Atlanta. Although his sibling escaped, Daryl is often on the fringes of the group.

What to expect in season 2? While still enraged over his bother Merle being left for dead, Daryl also sees this as an opportunity to step out of Merle's shadow and become his own man.  A true loner, Daryl can survive on his own in the dangerous environment but something keeps him tethered to the group.  As he develops individual relationships, he begins to see the value in community and putting the needs of others ahead of his own - a direct contradiction to the way he and Merle were raised.

Where have I seen Norman Reedus before? He starred in the cult hits The Boondock Saints and it's sequel Boondock Saints 2: All Saints Day, as well as the Robert Redford-directed The Conspirator.

Did you know? Norman starred in the Lady Gaga video for Judas.
