While filming The Walking Dead’s 11th and final season, Reedus suffered a head injury.
The actor has been injured before while working on The Walking Dead, according to Deadline. The outlet reports that Reedus previously cut his arm while filming season 5’s “Them” episode in 2015. While Deadline reports that the initial injury was filmed, it was not included in the final cut of the episode.
Since his debut on The Walking Dead in season 1, which aired on AMC beginning in 2010, Reedus has played Daryl Dixon – the crossbow carrying bad-ass. When the series ends, Reedus will return as his character in a spin-off series that will also feature fellow Walking Dead star Melissa McBride as Carol Peletier.
