Norman Reedus’ Birthday — ‘Walking Dead’ Actor Turns 46
Norman, who is a Florida native, joined the cast of The Walking Dead in 2010, and and has since then made his mark as one of the most influential characters on pop culture.
Among his ability to shoot a crossbow and his impeccable survival skills during the zombie apocalypse, one of the big mysteries is the sexuality of his character, Daryl Dixon, which has been a huge talking point during the show’s fifth season. Many fans suspect him to be gay or bisexual, but when he became close to Beth (R.I.P.) fans suspected a romance may blossom between them, too.
In the October issue of GQ, where Norman was featured in a snazzy gray suit on the cover, Norman revealed that the executive producer of the show told him to play Daryl with a mysterious air that could go both ways sexually — which is exactly what makes him so interesting!
“You could drop him off in the middle of the woods with a stick and he’ll come back well fed and doing well, but I don’t think in matters of the heart he’s real secure,” Norman said to the mag.
Among The Walking Dead, Norman’s upcoming projects include two films, Air, a sci-fi thriller, and Triple Nine, a crime drama.
We can’t wait to see what else 2015 brings for the amazing and beloved actor. Happy birthday, Norman!
