Walking Dead Has Gay Character Coming
After the much talked about sexuality of Daryl Dixon and how he may not be gay, The Walking Dead will have one soon. Now the series runner Scott M. Gimple says that we may see a new (and possible) gay side to Daryl in season 5. He shared that the idea of who he is will be explored while he slowly starts allowing more people into his life. Here is what Scott had to say about their possible coming out of Daryl and the promise of a male chaarcter who is gay.
We know all sorts of things about the characters that we haven’t revealed,[But] we’re not holding back information on Daryl’s sexuality as any sort of big reveal. The fact that there’s still a question as to what Daryl’s orientation is in Season 5 absolutely speaks to Daryl’s character; he is a very guarded, very closed-off individual in a lot of ways. We have been able to see him ever so slowly open up and show the other characters aspect by aspect as to what makes him tick. That’s been a very satisfying journey for all of us on the creative side to portray. [And] he’s still on that journey (along with a gay character that is set to come in time)
We’re not sure why they feel the need to have a gay character. But we are sure GLAAD will approve of it and will help boost the already cult status of the series. It will certainly help them out and perhaps remove some of the pressure the team is feeling over the whole is Daryl or is Daryl not on the subject of being gay.
Do you think Daryl Dixon should be their gay character?
