Daryl Dixon is no doubt one of the fan-favorite characters on "The Walking Dead." Norman Reedus, the actor who plays the crossbow-wielding zombie apocalypse survivor, has been receiving thousands of fan letters and even proposals from the show's female followers. But what does Daryl really have that makes people love him?

In a recent interview with Connect Savannah, the 45-year-old hunky actor gives some reasons why he thinks fans cannot get enough of his character on the hit AMC zombie show.

"He's honest. He wears his heart on his sleeve and he means what he says," the Hollywood, Florida-born actor said of Daryl. "You're watching this guy who's very childlike in a lot of ways slowly become the man that he would've loved to be if this didn't all go down. And this probably wouldn't have ever happened, you know? And this backdrop sort of gave him an opportunity to discover himself, and it's interesting to watch."
