I’ve been a fan of Norman Reedus since I got hip to the cult classic flick The Boondock Saints many years ago. A single cool dad, Norman Reedus now plays a zombie killer on the hit AMC series The Walking Dead and in real life is killing stereotypes of dead beat dads. The father of one son, Mingus, he spends as much time with his son as he can. According to Reedus, fatherhood is one thing he doesn’t run from.
“I’m really enjoying being a father. I love that. I run toward that every opportunity I can get.” – Norman Reeds
On what he’s learned from his son, Mingus: “Patience. He doesn’t freak out about anything. He’s so calm, cool and collected.”
Even what terrifies him has to do with fatherhood …
On what really terrifies him: “Have you ever sat in a parent-teacher meeting with a bunch of moms and you? That’s terrifying. I did that recently, where I was sitting in a room with all moms and me. And everyone’s talking about how we should structure this after school program, and I’m just like ‘Ah!’”
