"Walking Dead" actor's unique job security plan

Yes, I did catch some of the "Dead, White, & Blue" Walking Dead marathon over the recent July 4th holiday.



Despite my previously expressed problems with the way the series has developed, I have to admit that The Walking Dead is still pretty good as an action/drama series--even if it is no longer very scary. 

But on another Walking Dead-related note:

"Fans of "The Walking Dead" are very close to Daryl Dixon and time and again they have threatened that this character must never die. Fans will riot if Daryl Dixon dies. However, Norman Reedus, too, has planned something if his character dies.  
"If they kill me on the show I'll probably, like, set my trailer on fire. They'll probably have to call in a bunch of cops to escort me off the property 'cause I'll be so pi**ed," said Norman Reedus during the "Inside The Walking Dead" documentary.  
Norman has no plans to leave "The Walking Dead" soon and clearly, he loves being a part of this show as Daryl Dixon."

I agree: It would be a major blunder for the producers to kill off Daryl. 

But I doubt they'll be dissuaded by Reedus's threats to burn his on-set quarters.
