Over the last few months there has been plenty of speculation over whether Daryl from the hit series, ‘The Walking Dead, is Gay or not.

In a recent interview creator Robert Kirkman had the question put direct to him about Daryl sexual orientation with him stating,

“Daryl Dixon is actually straight,” Kirkman told host Chris Hardwick. “Coming back in our next half of the season, we are going to be introducing a very prominent gay character from the comics.”

Rumours first started about Daryl, when showrunner Scott Gimple made the statement that a Gay character what be coming to ‘The Walking Dead’.

Actor Norman Reedus who plays Daryl in the cult Zombie series also recently commented about the rumours saying,

“Whatever they gave me to do, I would happily do it and I don’t think it matters one way or another [about] his sexual orientation,” Reedus told Entertainment Weekly.

“He’s an honest, badass dude and he has a lot of heart to him and it doesn’t really matter. It’s so funny when you meet people and their reaction to this and to that – and believe me they go from all the way far left to all the way far right.”

On speaking about when The Walking Dead returns for season 5 in 2015 Reedus commented,

“It’s a very different show, the back eight,” Reedus said. “It’s still the same show, but it’s very different circumstances. Personalities really come to a boil and a lot of unexpected things are going to happen because it’s in a very different vein.”

The Walking Dead finished this week for its Mid season hiatus, with it scheduled to return to AMC in the US on February 8th and in the UK on Fox February 9th.
