    […] Another bonus of playing Daryl Dixon is the fact that he has his own Hello Kitty character, he even has his own Daryl Hello Kitty iPhone cover (some people have it all) — via Nerd Like You […]

    I think I went crazy for him like many others because he’s an enigma! He seems to have all of these layers – just when you think you’ve figured him out, you see you were wrong! He’s a perfect combination of being ruggedly sexy and strong but still surprisingly still sensitive and he has a gentleness about him! He’s a mans man and a lady’s man!!

      I am not 100% sure but the woman who designed it (Tracey Gurney) has a website and she has some stuff for sale on it there, plus she responds quick to email – so she should be able to help :) Hope you find one. (Susie)

  6. Walking Dead: 5 Of The Best Daryl Dixon Memes

    […] the baddest badass zombie hunters in the land, plays the role to perfection (as I have pretty aptly covered here). The intensity, humour, vulnerability and quiet strength that he brings to the role gives Daryl a […]

    i think he is the best character in the show. not that he’s just holding a crossbow but because he’s cool at everything. like staying outside of the house in the barn instead of staying inside and driving something loud that atracts zombies and he’s good at killing zombies , and very helpful with the team. He can be one of the survivors for me because I think he deserves it and he’s a good man. who won’t like him? he is norman reedus. duhhh? :))))

    My zombie apocalypse survival team would consist of mostly Red necks and cowboys. Daryl, Merle, Tallahassee and… I don’t know who else! Oh yeah two of my best friends, Gavin and Kathleen. I’d need someone to keep me in line around Daryl.

    I love the way Norman brings Daryl Dixon to life! :) A character with depth and not mono-faced (yes, mono-faced is a word because I invented it.). A sexy alpha male, with a very kind, warm, side too. I’d want him on my team during WWZ! Plus I would have other uses for him too! ;) The Walking Dead is the one show on T.V. that I do not like to miss. The episode tonight was SPECTACULAR!
    I’ve been singing about the walking dead for some years now :
    ( ) so that qualifies me as an expert.
    Go team Norman!! <3 <3

    Please—not even a question. This group would not have survived
    24hrs without Daryl i’m not saying the others have not done their
    part—but Daryl is the only one among them who without
    hesitation—gets things done—period. PS the Hello Kitty tribute is awesome :D

    I think that it’s funny how Norman believes that it was Cherokee Rose that got women interested in Daryl. For me it was the second I saw “Norman Reedus” in the opening credits of episode 3. I think that Daryl is cool because he doesn’t talk about doing shit, he just does shit that needs done. That, and it would take a Charlize Theron type of make-under to make Norman look anything but cool.

    I’m torn between Rick and Daryl, both are quietly badass in their own way. If I had to choose between the two, hands down it would be Daryl. The crossbow is an efficient and quiet weapon, and of course, quite deadly… to the already dead. Comments on the Hello Kitty phone cover? meow! it takes a real man to carry that around!

    Daryl Dixon is definitely the man I’d want on my side in a zombie apocalypse! I know I’m not alone in that he quickly became my favorite character on the show. Liked Norman from some of his previous work. But really loving this character – badass survivalist, with a sweet, softer side that shows through every so often. :)

    I think it’ll be interesting when he meets Merle again. Who’s side will he take? Will he go back to being Merle’s yes-man or will he side with the group as he’s quite integral now. I’m hoping for some sort of epic battle to the death between the two.

      I think it will be very interesting. I too am hoping for an epic fight to the death (Daryl for the win). Thanks lots for commenting :)

          eek! I hadn’t thought of that. I think that situation could get pretty interesting – At least T-Dog would have something to do though :)

            true :( bit of a shame, that his character didn’t get to do more.

Please comment with your real name using good manners.
