I know I know, another girl writing about Norman Reedus blah blah blah. He is the king of fandom for a reason, not only his looks earn him this title. Norman has often said in interviews that he is “emotionally damaged”, and in my opinion this is what gives him his awkward charm. Everywhere he goes is instantly turned into a fangirl (and even some fanboys) frenzy. I was at HorrorHound Cincinnati in March of this year and it was utter chaos. Norman was swamped with so many fans that he stayed late every night, even missing his flight home on Sunday. This is what I was talking about when I said that it is not just his looks that make people love him. He is a genuinely nice guy.
Norman Reedus is one of the most naturally gifted actors around. Sean Patrick Flanery said it best when he said that the role of Daryl Dixon was written for Reedus. My personal favorite role that he played was Harry Odum in 1997’s Six Ways to Sunday. He was awkward yet he was still a total badass. Not many people can make a seamless transition from Prada model to an all-out onscreen badass like he has. Mr. Reedus is not just an awesome actor, but he is also a gifted writer, director and photographer. His company is called Big Bald Head.
Norman is an avid “tweeter”(that sounds like a dirty word) and “Instagramer” and he does the best he can to keep his fans up to date and interact with them. No matter if you’ve loved Reedus since Van in Floating, Murphy in The Boondock saints, or Daryl from The Walking Dead, you understand completely what I am saying. So guys, next time you have a smartass remark about how girls are only fanning over Reedus because of his looks, keep it to yourself.
