Walking Dead’s Norman Reedus pranked by Andrew Lincoln

The Walking Dead’s Daryl has balls of steel, but actor Norman Reedus got seriously scared…

The Walking Dead’s squirrel slayer Daryl Dixon would stab a walker in the head as soon as look at one. The actor Norman Reedus, however, would nearly fall off his chair.

When his co-star Andrew Lincoln and Vine prankster Nick Santonastasso set up a carefully orchestrated practical joke – along with the help of make-up effects maestro Greg Nicotero – things couldn’t have gone better.

The prank was the start of The Walking Dead broadcaster FOX’s social media campaign, “#getFOXed”. It’s designed to identify superfans of the series and create unmatched fan experiences for them.

The Walking Dead, Season 4 Part B starts on Monday 10 February at 9pm on FOX.
