(Please note: The author of this post is a creepily huge Walking Dead fan, and has adored Reedus since his Boondock Saints days. In fact, Reedus wasn't actually doing interviews, but this author squealed and waved like a maniac, and, perhaps thinking she was having some type of fit, Reedus took pity on her and gracefully answered her questions. He also gave her a hug, which in no way affected her decision to conduct a neutral, un-fawning interview.)
We are here at the Film Society of Lincoln Center's premiere of Stoker, with Mia Wasikowska and Nicole Kidman. Why are you here?
"I just love the director, Chan-wook Park. Oldboy is one of my favorite movies of all time. He's really incredible."
You love interacting with your Walking Dead fans on Twitter and Instagram. Is this a new thing for you?
"Yeah, they are some of the greatest, most passionate fans."
"Oh man, Merle would definitely kick Daryl's ass. No doubt about it. He is one mean guy."
"The entire arch of my character is really awesome. He's come a long way since season 1, and I think he is only going to get more interesting. He's a really different guy now, and has done a lot of growing."
So, are you the ultimate anti-hero?
"Ha. My characters in both Walking Dead and Boondock Saints might let you think so. I am more interested in the struggle than being a good guy all the time. I like characters who tell a story and go through an experience and are just kind of bad-assed."
So, what's next for you? Just all Walking Dead, all the time?
"Well, I've got a film coming out at Tribeca with Naomi Watts and Matt Dillon. It's kind of a love triangle story. I am also working on a really crazy, really amazing cartoon. Think Adult Swim."
"I can neither confirm or deny. But have you ever seen Wonder Showzen?"
Wonder Showzen rules.
"Well, think of Wonder Showzen. You know, 'Kids on the beat. Beat kids!'"
