The Walking Dead fans have been desperate to see a Carol and Daryl (played by Norman Reedus) romance for years now but nothing has ever emerged. The pair have always been close but Carol married King Ezekiel (Khary Payton) while Daryl grew close to Connie (Lauren Ridloff) before she was crushed in an accident in a cave in season 10.
The incident was caused by Carol and Daryl was furious with his friend, however, realising she was simply reeling from the death of Henry (Matthew Lintz), he eventually forgave her.
Now, with the pair set to share the screen, Carol star Melissa has hinted they may finally realise their is more to their friendship.
She shared: “Of course, I’ve always enjoyed working so closely with Norman throughout these many seasons.
“In playing Carol, and as a viewer of the show, I’ve also long been intrigued with Daryl and Carol, and by what so early on between them, even then, felt somehow bound.
