'The Walking Dead' actor bit by fan

Posted at 7:09 AM, Dec 10, 2015

AMC’s zombie drama “The Walking Dead” is known for its rabid fan base. But one fan took it a bit too far this weekend when meeting one of the show’s stars at a convention.

According to a report from TMZ, actor Norman Reedus was bitten by a fan this weekend at “Walker Stalker Con” in Secaucus, New Jersey. Reedus, who portrays Daryl in “The Walking Dead,” took a bite to the chest from a female fan — mimicking the undead “walkers” that haunt the show.

According to the report, the fan was apprehended by security and removed from the convention. She’s also banned from future “Walker Stalker” events.

Reedus will not press charges against the fan, but he did have a message to other crazed “Walking Dead” fans:



Um please don't ??
