On Beth and Daryl:
“It’s been very interesting to have this grunting, wild animal paired with this nice, young, eloquent girl who speaks her mind.”
“...Beth explained to him that she thought it was pretty that somebody took the time and effort to put makeup on the dead bodies at the funeral home, to keep them alive in a sense, for their relatives to see. Daryl just didn’t understand that. She opened his eyes to the fact that there are good people out there. So many bad things have happened to both, but she shows him it doesn’t have to be this hard, that maybe there’s a glimmer of hope, a candle at the end of the tunnel showing him there’s the possibility of a good life. […] People hinted that there was more of a love thing going to happen, but I think it was much more a basic need to have something good in the world. Beth showed him that’s possible, and I think he was clinging to that hope. Then, of course, she gets ripped away from him.”
"...As far as hooking Daryl up with love interests, it’s not an easy sell. It’s a big pill to swallow because he’s not ready. Once he’s ready, it’s done. Once you do that, it’s over with. But I really like that I’ve been given the opportunity to explore this character, to work with the writers, with Scott [Gimple] and the directors to bring out the little nuances. It’s all the stuff behind the curtain that makes him a well-rounded person. And, with Beth, she’s such an innocent character in a lot of ways. She looks at things through rose-tinted glasses. So many bad things have happened to her, but she’s gone from being suicidal to somebody who’s comfortable singing around a campfire. I don’t think Daryl ever thought of himself that way. It takes a lot of balls to sing around a campfire and let people get to know you, and I feel once they had some one-on-one time, she opened his eyes to a lot of things.”
