I love them in this episode, I have to say, they’re super cute together. They’re playing with it, it’s fun to watch. Daryl’s hopeful that somebody may be that close. I don’t think he’s waiting for it, or maybe he’s already found it and has to realize it. It’s a touchy situation. But when it happens, it happens. It only happens once… It’s [an] interesting storyline to be a part of. I’m looking forward to all of this.

In this episode you also had Abraham and Sasha sparking up a romance of sorts — and it’s the second one on the show for both. So when are we going to finally get a romantic relationship for Daryl?

I don’t know dude. Um…do you mean on the show? I don’t know. You know, I like all those little awkward moments up to the hook-up. I’ve said it before: I don’t think Daryl’s the kind of guy that’s going to throw you up against a wall and be, like, dun dun dun da dun! I think he’s gonna be like [makes fumbling sound against microphone], you know, which is more interesting to me. But, I don’t know.

I would like to know, when you are gonna finally hook up with Carol?

** Since he’s making the “on the show” joke that implies McReedus, I’m tagging it that way, too.

For me, being able to be vulnerable is difficult, but it’s just something that I feel comfortable doing. I need to fully understand why, the thought-process behind the character and I have to believe it. That comes from a lot of preparation.
