Walkers – Dawn of a Dead relationship! Emily Kinney and Norman Reedus, who met on AMC’s zombie thriller The Walking Dead, are seeing each other, sources reveal exclusively in the new issue of Us Weekly.
“They had a connection early on in the show,” says a source close to the duo, “but the romance developed recently. They’re still pretty guarded about it.”
After Kinney’s character, Beth, was shockingly killed off in 2014, she and Reedus, 46, who plays zombie hunter Daryl, stayed in touch through texts, appearances at fan conventions (the two are scheduled to appear at the Walker Stalker Con event in Orlando, Fla., on June 27 and 28), and at Kinney’s music gigs. Says the source, “He was one of the first to support her at her concerts when she was still on the show.”
I usually don’t engage in celebrity gossip, but this is pretty big time news. Two stars from the one of the most popular shows on TV are dating in real life? Get me a tub of popcorn and a front row seat and I’m ready to go. Walking Dead fans were kind of torn on whether or not these Daryl and Beth should have gotten together on the show, but in real life, I hope everyone is happy for them. Beth is no longer with us (RIP) and who knows what’s going to happen to Daryl, so this is nice. And they said nothing good would come out of the zombie apocalypse.
