The Walking Dead star Jeffrey Dean Morgan has said his terrifying role in the hit series has led to him receiving abuse in the street.

The actor has played vicious killer Negan in the zombie show since its sixth series and he said the character has made fans forget his previous roles.

Asked if he feels haunted by such a reviled character, he told the Press Association: “Yes, right now in my career, absolutely.

“I’m kind of the opposite. I don’t want to say I’m a super nice guy all the time, I don’t want to screw up anybody’s nefarious bastard outlook on me, but I am not the character that I play on television.

“It is not a documentary but it seems that everyone has forgotten a pretty substantial body of work that I have done before the show that I am doing now and the character that I am doing now on television.

“Really I have people look at me as if I am going to take out a baseball bat and crack them in the head at any given moment so as much as I kind of like that respect that I get now, or maybe lack thereof – I get a lot of ‘screw yous’, only not that nice, from across the street.

So far, Jeffrey Dean Morgan ’s interpretation of the character has lived up to the hype. He also added that Negan will have a large role in the next two episodes before the midseason break, after the character’s recent The Walking Dead continues next Sunday with ‘Sing Me a Song’ @9pm on AMC.

“I can see men come up to me and size themselves up, like they are going to take a swing at me because I maybe hurt one of their favourite characters on television, which I always find slightly amusing.

“And God forbid if I look on social media and the hate that I get there.”

He added: “It’s not all the people (that hate me), just half the people.

“Half the people think that I’m dandy, the other half not so much but that is OK.

“When you’re playing a nefarious bastard that kind of comes with the territory and you have to embrace that and I have.

“I think that a lot of people have maybe followed my career and those are the nice people but if you were just a Walking Dead fan then you pretty much hate my guts.”

This image released by AMC shows Jeffrey Dean Morgan as Negan, foreground, from the series, “The Walking Dead .” One day, he was busy on the New York set of “The Good Wife” in his role as Alicia Florrick’s caddish cuddle toy, flashing his devilish grin at series star Julianna Margulies.

Morgan will next be seen as a federal agent in the new blockbuster Rampage opposite Dwayne Johnson and said he was relieved not to play a baddie.

He said: “As soon as I walk on the screen in this film they are going to assume that I’m probably not a decent fella.

“Now I get to be a little bit of a hero, or at least help the hero save the day and hopefully I can get all those Walking Dead people to go see this.”

Rampage is in UK cinemas now.

Brands ready to bring Lozano to Everton with him .
PSV technical director Marcel Brands is already planning his first Everton transfer with a move to Goodison Park imminent. The Sunday Mirror, as cited by Sky Sports, claims that Hirving Lozano is being lined up as the club’s first summer transfer. The Mexican winger has played a key role in PSV’s title success this season in the Eredivisie. The 22-year-old has netted 18 times in all competitions for the Dutch side and is being primed to move on to bigger and better things this summer. Despite only joining PSV in 2017 from Pachuca, Lozano is already being linked with big-money moves. The news that Brands is expected to join the club has raised questions over the immediate future of Steve Walsh, who himself has not been at Goodison Park for very long since joining from Leicester City. Lozano could well be the start of a busy summer transfer window for the Toffees.
