Although they haven’t featured together as much this season, Carol (Melissa McBride) and Daryl (Norman Reedus) fans always thought they would make a cute couple on . caught up with Lennie recently and it seemed the Morgan star has fuelled the theory along.

When asked if he reads fan theories, the 52-year-old who will soon be making the crossover to Fear The Walking Dead confessed he doesn’t, but keeps up to date with them when he meets fans.

Lennie laughed: “I don’t read into it at all but I meet [the fans] and people come up and give you their theories.

“They ask: ‘When are you and Carol going to get it together?’ and I’m like, ‘I don’t know!’

“I don’t think it’s ever going to happen and I think Daryl would have something to say about it,” he teased.

If even the cast members are aware of the building romance between Carol and Daryl, could it be a sign the highly-anticipated relationship is coming?

Last year, Norman himself confessed “there’s definitely a spark of a relationship there”.

He previously told “I can’t tell you other stuff or if it’s going to happen or if it has already happened though.

“I definitely like doing scenes with her and there’s a lot of Melissa in those scenes and there’s a lot of Norman in those scenes.”

Lennie also spilled on what is to come from his departure from The Walking Dead, teasing no one has guessed how he will pop up in the crossover.

He teased: “The way that… I can’t give too much away. But where they take Morgan to before he exits is a great place and it’s like what they do in episode nine with Carl [Grimes, Chandler Riggs] and it’s a testimony to who he is as a character in the world.

“As they take him from one so to another – I think it’s brilliant storytelling. It’s really simple but no one has guessed it before.”

Lennie continued to explain he was thrilled to be offered a role in Fear the Walking Dead, admitting he is in love with Morgan’s character.

But will the beloved stalwart die as he leaves one show for another? Or will the AMC show’s bosses find a way to keep him alive?

The Walking Dead continues Sunday on AMC and will air the following day on FOX UK at 9pm.
