AMC is coming in hot this fall with new shows bound to envelop us in yet another engaging and binge-worthy universe. Two of the forthcoming shows feature one of our favorite familiar faces, Norman Reedus. The latest The Walking Dead spinoff, Daryl Dixon and the sixth season of authentic travel show, Ride with Norman Reedus will both premiere on September 10. Before we dig into these two exciting new obsessions, let’s dig deeper into the man (and name) behind these highly anticipated shows.
Who is Norman Reedus?
Norman Reedus, born in Hollywood, Florida, is a captivating multi-talented actor, artist, author and entrepreneur. Although he’s most known for his acclaimed acting career, he’s also a remarkable photographer with published books and international art shows. His debut novel, “The Ravaged,” soared to the New York Times bestseller list. With key roles in Boondock Saints, 8MM, Blade II, as well as numerous TV shows and music videos, Reedus has made quite the name for himself, although one character elevated his legacy to iconography.
Undoubtedly, his crowning achievement is giving life to Daryl Dixon from The Walking Dead. The role was designed exclusively for Reedus and has crawled beyond the confines of the TWD show into video games, spin offs and even cartoon references. Our favorite sunglasses-and-a-scowl-sporting actor takes his signature swagger on the road and beyond with his two upcoming AMC shows.
