That Time Norman Reedus Ran Around ‘Walking Dead’ Set Naked

You know you are going to get some fun and juicy behind-the-scene nuggets when you own a complete season of The Walking Dead on Blu-ray – like the story about how star Norman Reedus aka Daryl Dixon had to strip off his clothes in front of everyone in order to quickly make a shot.

According to EW, the commentary track for the season premiere episode of The Walking Dead: The Complete Sixth Season set has executive producer Greg Nicotero explaining how Reedus flashed the cast and crew.

Speaking with Reedus as they are watching the episode, Nicotero says, “Norman, this was the day that you ran up naked.” Nicotero then explains how an alarm clock snafu led to the star changing clothes on the run: “Norman’s alarm didn’t go off and we put a [stunt] double in his wardrobe. And Norman refused and got to set, stripped his clothes off on his way to set, and got in the shot before we were ready.

Ah, to be a zombie extra in that moment.

The Walking Dead: The Complete Sixth Season is being released on Blu-ray + Digital HD Tuesday, August 23, and check new Season 7 set photos that give hints on who survived the Season 6 finale!
