Norman Reedus has spoken out about the time he was bitten by a Walking Dead fan. The incident happened at Walker Stalker Con, a convention for the show, in New Jersey last year.
The actor was having his picture taken with the fan before she bit him. The bite did not injure Reedus but the fan was removed from the convention immediately.
Speaking on Jimmy Kimmel Live this week Reedus said: “We took a picture. She started off when she came out, and goes, ‘Sometimes I like to pretend we’re married,’ and to tell you the truth I was so tired at that point I didn’t really register that she said that.”
“And then we took this picture and she sort of morphed into a werewolf. She kind of started to shake and howled. Then she came down and bit me on the chest and howled again. A couple of nice officers tackled her to the ground and she was escorted out.”

Reedus also said the woman ‘left her teeth prints’ on him but afterwards she had no recollection of what had happened. Regardless of the incident Reedus said ‘she was a nice lady’.
Reedus has played the character Daryl Dixon on the hit zombie drama since it began in 2010. The show is currently nearing the end of its sixth season.
