“The Walking Dead” has millions of fans across all demographics, but the one actor on the show who seems to draw the most impassioned responses is Norman Reedus. The actor behind Daryl Dixon visited “Katie” alongside costars Andrew Lincoln and Steve Yeun and opened up about his craziest fan experience.
“The one people talk about a lot is the breast implant. It’s actually my phone cradle in my trailer back in Georgia,” he says as Katie Couric‘s talk show showed the implant in question. “[The fan] said I seem depressed and I should take that to feel better. And actually when I opened it, Steven was doing interviews, so he was surrounded by international press, and I opened it and I threw it at him.”
At least Reedus is putting the gift to good use. Another sneak peek from the interview, which airs on Oct. 18, shows Reedus discussing what he thinks sets “The Walking Dead” apart from other similar horror properties.
“I think it’s a lot about everyone’s infected, your clock is ticking and time is important and who do you want to be?” he explains. “What do you stand for? These are your two feet on the ground and what are you going to fight for and what are you going to give up? That’s sort of the story I think that draws people in. The way that Greg [Nicotero] does our zombies, it’s not just a monster but you see the dying lost person being the monster, and that’s the scary part.”
“The Walking Dead” airs Sundays on AMC at 9 p.m. ET.
