What happens when two forces of nature meet for the first time?
For Beta and Daryl, it’s a bare-knuckle, down-and-dirty showdown.
In a new behind-the-scenes video, the crew gives a look at how they created the fight between the two actors who’ve been friends for a long time.
“It was important to give Daryl an opponent that was worthy of him and that you would feel afraid of Daryl to have to fight,” explains Eddie Guzelian, Executive Story Editor and Co-Writer of the episode.
The crew wanted the fight to be as brutal and visceral as possible.
Though Hurst is bigger than Reedus, they’re well-matched in intensity.
“I never fight little people on the show. It’s really annoying!” Norman Reedus jokes.
