|Reedus at Philly Comic Con|
Now I've been fortunate to interview Mr. Daryl Dixon several times, and he was even kind enough to appear on our Travel Channel show Paranormal Paparazzi. Anyhow, to make a long story short, Reedus chatted with me briefly about his take on ghosts and ghost hunting:
Q: Do you believe in the paranormal, and ghosts or stuff like that?
Reedus: I do believe in it. I definitely think it's out there. As far as experiences, you know, maybe some things when I was really little. Nothing major, to be honest, but there's some backstory with my grandmother ... she's from a town called Butera in Sicily and it's supposedly the witches down in Sicily so I've heard some stories growing up that were pretty interesting and scary.
Q: But you've never seen anything?
Reedus: I've not really seen any ghosts. I was staying in a loft in Newnan, Georgia, where we shot the show and it's supposedly haunted. It's a cotton mill from the 1800s and there's supposedly a slave graveyard on the grounds. They kept telling me it's haunted and I kept hearing little creaks in the night and things falling off shelves, but I usually sort of roll over and then I'd have some sort of verbal outburst to the effect of, 'I have to sleep!' so then they'd go away.
Q: Would you ever want to do a ghost hunting show?
Reedus: I'd love that [to do a paranormal investigative show like Ghost Hunters]. I'd love to ... You know, at first, even when I met them all, I was like, "you never find nothing," so they'd probably finally find something and probably scare the pants off me. But I'd love to.
