Norman Reedus is an American actor who has appeared in many movies and tv shows, notably besides William Dafoe in the Boondock Saints. However, he is most well known as Daryl in the popular AMC zombie thriller The Walking Dead, which was based on a comic book of the same name.
How Norman Reedus Got Famous
He was born Norman Mark Reedus on January 6th, 1969 in Hollywood, Florida. The family moved to Los Angeles, California, where Norman grew up. When he got older, he got into making art. He also worked as a mechanic for a motorcycle shop in Venice, California. Norman didn’t keep his art to himself. He was a painter, sculptor, photographer, as well as a video artist, and he showed his art at various local shows. Deciding he was not well rounded enough, Norman Reedus got into acting, first on the stage, then in film.
In 1997, Guillermo del Toro made the sci-fi/horror film Mimic, and Norman played alongside Josh Brolin and Mira Sorvino. It was his first time acting off the stage, and it might’ve gotten him type-cast as an unrefined, red-neck type character. In the next 7 years, Norman landed roles in movies such as Deuces Wild, American Gangster, Six Ways to Sunday, 8mm, Hero Wanted, and Moscow Chill.
Norman Reedus’s Acting Career
His first starring role was in the Giovanni Rodriguez film Red Canyon in 2008. After that, he showed off his Irish heritage in The Boondock Saints, where he played the role of Murphy MacManus.

In 2009, Norman Reedus landed the role of Daryl Dixon on The Walking Dead, which was based on a comic book. Although Reedus’ character was not in the comic book, Daryl Dixon quickly became a fan favorite, and the role earned him a nomination for Best Supporting Actor at the Saturn Awards. The fame from his various roles let him engage in his other passions. He released a book of photography in 2013 and held art shows in Berlin, Frankfurt, and NYC. Norman also showed off his modeling skills over the years, both for mid-90’s music videos and, later, for Prada.
