Relax everyone, your favorite crossbow-wielding walker slayer won’t be turning into one of the undead. However, he may want to keep his distance from adoring female fans in the future.
According to Undead Walking, Reedus and Michael Rooker (who played his Walking Dead brother Merle Dixon) were recently in New Jersey for the Walker Stalker Convention, a collection of all things zombie. According to various reports, a woman was waiting in line to get her picture taken with the duo. When it was her turn, she… umm, well took a bite of her favorite actor.
The woman approached the two actors and told Norman Reedus a story about how she likes to pretend that she’s married to him. After a moment, security ran in and restrained the woman, explaining that she was to be removed for biting theThe Walking Dead star and saying “Um….ma’am. You just bit Norman Reedus.”
Michael Rooker was surprised by the interaction as well. In fact, the actor who played Merle Dixon reportedly exclaimed “What the f**k was that?!”
The woman was banned from the convention and lost two remaining photo ops (that she had already paid for). She apparently apologized on Instagram.
