Norman Reedus (53) was scared to death after his accident on the set of "The Walking Dead". "Oh man, that was horrible. This whole ordeal was horrible for me personally. I thought I was going to die," the actor told Entertainment Weekly. The actor spoke to the magazine for the first time about the concussion he suffered while filming the series finale in March 2022. At the time, a spokesman only confirmed the accident without giving details.
"I went to a neurologist. I had all kinds of crap. I failed the light test," reveals the partner of the Hollywood star Diane Kruger (46). Even the doctors were obviously expecting the worst. "I had a security guard with me in the driveway just in case. I held on to the walls and walked around the rooms. It was crazy."
Despite the serious injury, Norman Reedus felt bad for his colleagues. Because of his accident, the shooting of the horror series was delayed. "They are shooting for over a year and now we have to postpone part of the shooting because I'm in bed."
The third part of the eleventh and final season of "The Walking Dead" starts in the USA on October 2nd. The fans of the zombie series will not have to do without Norman Reedus as Daryl Dixon. In 2023, an offshoot series will start with the focus on the loner.
