The cast of the AMC series were spread across several locations to give viewers an insight to life in Alexandria, Hilltop, the Sanctuary and the Kingdom.
Norman, who plays Daryl Dixon in the zombie series, spent a lot of his time shooting at the Sanctuary as a prisoner of Negan.
And while the actor wasn’t a fan of being separated from everybody else, he did admit it was worth it in the long-run.
“I mean, I understand when characters go through certain things, and mostly they’re cut off from the rest of the group, but I didn’t see anybody,” he explained.

I was in a hole by myself, naked. It just did not feel right to me
“I was in a hole by myself, naked,” Norman told Entertainment Weekly. “It just did not feel right to me.
“I’d talk to [Scott] Gimple, and I’d be like, ‘Man, this sucks. I hate this’. And he’d be like, ‘You’re supposed to’. I’m like, ‘Oh, there you go’. You know what I mean?
“He was right. It was supposed to suck, and it did suck – for me, anyway. But you know, it just makes coming back together that much more special.”
In the mid-season finale of The Walking Dead, viewers were delighted as Daryl was reunited with Rick Grimes (played by Andrew Lincoln).

And now, as the second-half of the series approaches, bosses have promised a huge twist for Rick as he plots his revenge against Negan.
AMC have shared a brief synopsis of the first episode, which simply revealed: “Rick is introduced to a new community.”
Showrunner Scott Gimple added: “It propels us into a very different had season from the one before it. Before the end of that very first episode back, you will see Rick Grimes smile.”
The Walking Dead returns to AMC on February 12 in the US and airs the following day on FOX UK.
