Norman Reedus, the actor who plays one of the lead characters in The Walking Dead, has been bitten by a female walker! Nobody anticipated this to happen but apparently, it did… at the Walker Stalker Con NY/NJ around 2:50 p.m. The apocalypse has, indeed, taken on a new high!
According to Maxim, Norman Reedus, the actor who plays badass character Daryl Dixon in the hit TV series The Walking Dead, appeared with co-star Michael Rooker at the Walker Stalker Con NY/NJ yesterday. As the two personalities expected tons of fans of their series, Reedus was not equipped for what happened to him. After surviving several instances of being bitten by walkers in The Walking Dead, he finally got bit by one!
During the said event, Reedus was entertaining fans and taking selfies and snapshots with them around 2:50 in the afternoon when a female fan bit him. The woman allegedly approached the actor and told him a story about how she pretended to be his wife for several occasions. After which, she did the unthinkable and bit him out of nowhere. Security scrambled and restrained the die-hard The Walking Dead fan and said, “Um… ma’am. You just bit Norman Reedus.” Accordingly, Rooker was shocked with the incident and even managed to say, “What the f**k was that?!”
Accordingly, the girl who was later revealed to be harleygurl68 on Instagram, posted a photo of her and the two actors which was captioned, “Finally meet the love of my life, and get banned from the rest of the CON and lose two more $100 photo ops with him because I lost my mind… got so excited standing beside him… & just turned my head and bit him! I don’t know what came over me. It wasn’t my intention to hurt him. I’m sorry Norman!” She really got carried away.
In other news, Daily Mail reported that Reedus, after being bitten at the chest by the lady, did not suffer any injuries. He also refused to press charges against the woman and was still able to continue with photo ops for other fans after the incident. However, it was revealed that she will be prohibited from walking into any Walker Stalker Conventions in upcoming weeks.
