Norman Reedus Injured While Filming The Final Season Of 'The Walking Dead,' Actor Suffers Concussion
Forget zombies! Norman Reedus suffered a head injury while on the set of The Walking Dead a few days ago.
The incident, which reportedly happened on March 11, occurred while the actor was on set of the AMC show, which is currently filming its final season in Georgia.
“Norman suffered a concussion on set,” the actor’s spokesperson Jeffrey Chassen told Deadline on Wednesday, March 16. “He is recovering well and will return to work soon. Thank you to everyone for their concern.”
It is still unclear whether or not the accident happened before, during, or after filming for the day, but the Hollywood star was still present on set when it all went down.
Due to Reedus' injuries, the final few days of shooting for The Walking Dead have been pushed until he recovers.
