NORMAN “Daryl” Reedus has shared his personal photo album from the set of season five of The Walking Dead on Pinterest.

And it looks like his days are spent in make-up, hanging out with co-stars Andrew “Rick” Lincoln, Chad “Tyreese” Coleman and Melissa “Carol” McBride, waiting for the next scene and kicking back with Alice Cooper dolls.

Season five of The Walking Dead screens on Foxtel later this year.
