Norman Reedus is an American actor. He is best known for portraying Daryl Dixon in The Walking Dead (2010–present) and Murphy MacManus in The Boondock Saints (1999) and its 2009 sequel. He is also known in fandom for his role in the 1998 film Dark Harbor, in which his and co-star Alan Rickman's characters are revealed in a twist ending to be lovers.

Reedus owns his own production company, Big Bald Head. He has published two books, one of his own photography and one a compilation of Walking Dead fan art, Thanks For All The Niceness.


Real-person fiction featuring Reedus as a character is popular. He is frequently paired with original female characters or reader inserts, or with his Walking Dead or Boondock Saints co-stars. Boondock Saints RPF is dominated by Sean Patrick Flanery/Norman Reedus.

In The Walking Dead RPF, Reedus is most commonly shipped with Andrew Lincoln (Andrew Lincoln/Norman Reedus) or Melissa McBride (Norman Reedus/Melissa McBride). There is also a small amount of tinhatting Reedus and Emily Kinney (who played the other half of the Beth Greene/Daryl Dixon ship), in part fuelled by celebrity gossip articles in mid-2015.[1] Other pairings include Jeffrey Dean Morgan/Norman Reedus and Jon Bernthal/Norman Reedus.
