Norman Reedus can’t walk down the street without being asked for a selfie. As the star of AMC’s most-watched show The Walking Dead, and with significant roles in cult movies like The Boondock Saints, the New York-based actor and photographer has an ever-growing and extremely devoted fanbase. Earlier this week, Reedus headed down to Georgia to teach a master class at the Savannah College of Art and Design as part of the Savannah Film Festival.
