20. Darryl Nearly Didn’t Make It On The Show
That’s right. You can pretty much call The Walking Dead‘s most popular character an afterthought during the first season’s conception. Comic book readers will also recognize that the character doesn’t even exist in the comics.
Actor Norman Reedus actually auditioned for the role of Merle, the character that played Darryl’s older brother, and shortly after being turned away, got offered a role to help support the original. The crossbow wielding redneck became so iconic to the series as a whole after the first season, he was quickly promoted to the main cast. Given the character’s overall influence on the show, it’s quite difficult to imagine his absence.
