Are two Walking Dead stars dating? Rumors began to circulate on Wednesday that Norman Reedus and Emily Kinney were romantically involved and trying to keep their relationship a secret. However, The Daily Mail reports that Norman, who plays fan favorite character Daryl Dixon on the hit AMC series, claims he is not dating Emily, who played the young and innocent Beth Greene.
According to the report, Norman Reedus’ rep confirmed to Just Jared that he is not dating his former co-star, who was killed off The Walking Dead in the most recent Season 5 after struggling to survive in a cold and cruel new world, a world that Daryl helped her acclimate to when they were on their on after the collapse of the prison.
“We can confirm that they are not dating.”
Rumors that The Walking Dead stars were dating both excited and divided fans as Reedus has become a sex symbol among fans and the age difference between the 46-year-old actor and 29-year-old blonde beauty.
Although Us Weekly sources tell a very different story, revealing that the actors had a connection early in their professional relationship and that a romance developed out of their friendship and have been keeping it very quiet.
“They had a connection early on in the show, but the romance developed recently. They’re still pretty guarded about it.”
Hollywood Life reveals that Norman and Emily can’t seem to keep their hands off one another and that whether they are dating or just friends fans are obsessed with their relationship and its status. Will they eventually come out as a couple or will they remain just friends?
Meanwhile, while fans are trying to decided if The Walking Dead stars are dating or not, there is a new season of the show on the horizon and much to be excited and fearful about. Season 6 of the hit show will return this October and as previously reported by the Inquisitr, everyone is on edge that Norman Reedus’ character Daryl Dixon might be killed off in Season 6 and rumor has it that the other fan favorite character of Glenn Rhee could be joining him.
The spin-off series titled Fear The Walking Dead will also begin airing this summer and fans are pumped to see how the entire zombie apocalypse got started and what may have caused it to begin with. Hopefully, Norman Reeduse can hang in there for more seasons to come.
