In addition to gracing the cover of last week’s issue, The Walking Dead star Norman Reedus also stopped by EW‘s Sirius station to chat with EW‘s Dalton Ross about his offscreen antics and the future of his beloved character Daryl Dixon.

The two discussed Reedus’ tendency to hang onto show props like Andrew Lincoln’s beard, currently in a Ziploc bag in his fridge. Going down this road led them to talking about the best way to get meat off a rattlesnake tail (leave it on an anthill for a day, according to Reedus).

They talked about Daryl’s romantic life, especially his tension with Melissa McBride’s Carol …

… and finally, touched on Reedus’ tendency to lick people’s faces (also documented in this photo essay of a day on set with him).

The Walking Dead is once again airing new episodes on AMC on Sundays, after returning with a surreal, artistic episode.
