The Walking Dead’s Daniel Newman on Coming Out in Hollywood


The Walking Dead’s Daniel Newman never imagined the reaction he would get when he publically came out over an emotional YouTube video.

He’s opened up on the amazing reaction he’s received.

Daniel admits he never expected the reaction to be as big as it was.

”I thought it was going to be a small little thing with some of my friends and fans and hoping some kids would possibly connect to me and I could make a difference in their lives.”

But it became so much more. “It kind of took off and went global and became this big thing now.”


This reaction has meant the world to Daniel — especially considering he was willing to completely walk away from his success in order to live life as himself.

No matter what happens now, Daniel tells GayStarNews he's done all he can to live life for himself.

”If it happens [that I don’t get work], then it’s a great sign for me to know and if it doesn’t happen [and I keep getting work], then I’m thrilled and I’m really, really grateful.”

Sometimes real life is scarier than a horde of zombies, but Daniel can definitely handle it.
