The Walking Dead star Norman Reedus snagged an interesting souvenir from the set of the hit zombie drama series – his co-star Andrew Lincoln’s beard.
British actor Lincoln had to grow out his facial hair to play a desperate father struggling to survive in the hit TV show, but he was allowed to shave off his thick, shaggy beard last year, ahead of a season five premiere party, and he reveals he received a strange request from Reedus.
Lincoln tells Today, “Norman Reedus was thrilled (I was shaving) because he said, ‘I want your beard.’ So Norman Reedus has his beard.”
The star adds, “It’s in my refrigerator. Right where the eggs go.”
Reedus wasn’t joking about the hairy memorabilia – he shared a photo of his pal’s facial hair, in a bag, in his fridge at home with Today viewers.
