It’s always adorable to see two popular stars of one series sharing a little time together away from the cameras. With that in mind, Norman Reedus and his former co-star Emily Kinney are two of the loveliest Walking Dead actors we could pair together form the series and it looks like they found something special to hold onto apart from the show.
Kinney and Reedus first met when they both started shooting the AMC hit “The Walking Dead,” and now the two are a reported couple, according to Us Weekly, who snapped a few pics and spoke with a few sources close to the lovebirds away from the apocalypse.
“They had a connection early on in the show,” a source told US Weekly, “but the romance developed recently. They’re still pretty guarded about it.” It was just last year that Kinney’s character, Beth, left the series. Beth was one of the most popular characters still alive on the series through season four, her shocking exit was a heartbreaker for fans to watch.
Still on the series is Reedus, playing the dashing and daring zombie-killer named Daryl. It seems the two didn’t like spending time away from one another after Kinney’s departure and have been getting extra close now that she is away from the show.
It will be fun to see if the two comment on the reported relationship when they both appear at this year’s Walker Stalker Con event in Orlando, Fla., on June 27 and 28.
Season six of “The Walking Dead” is currently being shot in Atlanta, the ending to season five was one of the most-watched episodes of the show’s history. While Reedus is shooting season five, Kinney is off on her music-tour.
Kinney’s music career just kicked into high-gear shortly after the popular actor left the series last year and she is taking full advantage of her open schedule away from shooting.
