Fans of “The Walking Dead” have seen it. Hundreds of blogs have been written about it.

“There’s no denying there’s chemistry there,” McBride said. “I love Norman. But I can’t say because the writers haven’t given it to us. They are peers, I can say that.”

She added that there’s a “sweetness” between the two, and they have identified with each other during the apocalypse.

“As far as the relationship, it’s just Daryl and Carol,” McBride said, beaming.
