Biography

Projecting a carefully poised air of elegant dissolution since the late 1990s, actor Norman Reedus essayed fringe dwellers, true believers and sinister types in "The Boondock Saints" (1999), "Gossip" (2000) and "Blade II" (2002) before settling into character roles in independent films and television, including "The Walking Dead" (AMC, 2010- ). Handsome enough to model, which he did throughout the Nineties, Reedus nevertheless projected an air of distance and possible danger, which excluded him from traditional hero roles. Instead, he disrupted the lives of characters around him, bringing tension and harm to Kate Hudson in "Gossip," Stephen Dorff in "Deuces Wild" (2002), and others. Only his hotheaded Irish vigilante in "Boondock" and a scruff munitions maker in "Blade II" broke from the mold. His looks and the cult status of several past projects kept him on the radar into the new millennium, where he gamely moved from project to project, still trailing a fragrance of edgy mystery.

Bonus Trivia

.

"He's good-looking, but very unusual-looking. Very private and extremely accessible at the same time, which is an unusual combination. He seems to be holding onto a secret and yet is so available, so open." – Joel Schumacher ("8mm") on Reedus, quoted in Premiere, February 1999

.

"Even with photography and artwork, I've really liked having grotesque things and finding beauty in them. I've always been a fan of horror films and I like aggressive music and I like aggressive people—they all kind of were interesting to me. I mean I really don't see myself ever being, or wanting to be, in some sort of light romantic comedy about nothing." -- GQ, October 2014
