‘Walking Dead’ Stars Norman Reedus and Emily Kinney Dating?
Norman Reedus and Emily Kinney spent the better part of three seasons together on The Walking Dead, with one of those seasons spent as an isolated twosome, as Daryl Dixon and Beth Greene were separated from the rest of Rick’s group. That isolation may have resulted in a romance blossoming between the two, if Us Weekly is to be believed.
According to sources, after the 29-year-old Kinney left the show last season, she and Reedus “stayed in touch through texts, appearances at fan conventions (the two are scheduled to appear at the Walker Stalker Con event in Orlando, Fla., on June 27 and 28), and at Kinney’s music gigs.” A source told the magazine, “He was one of the first to support her at her concerts when she was still on the show.”
“They had a connection early on in the show,” said a source close to the couple, “but the romance developed recently. They’re still pretty guarded about it.”
“She always called him the sweetest guy on the set,” added the first source, and it more or less lines up with an interview Kinney gave to Us Weekly back in December 2014. Upon discovering she’d been written off the show, she recalled the outpouring of support from her cast members, Reedus in particular. “Everyone reached out, though I remember Norman texted me—he’s so sweet.”
It’s hard to know if the couple really is together or if this is just a rumor that’s gotten out of hand. It’ll be up to Reedus and Kinney to confirm it. But if they are together, then congratulations to them both! They’ve certainly come across as a cute couple in my head.
