No Big Deal, Steven Yeun And Norman Reedus Just Took A Break From Filming The Walking Dead To Save The Day

Living in the midst of a zombie apocalypse can bring out the very best or the very worst in people. Either you will become a terrific hero, or a dastardly villain. Working on The Walking Dead seems to have rubbed off on the cast of the hit AMC zombie series, because the heroics have started to seep into their everyday lives. Not content with simply playing zombie-slaying heroes on TV, Norman Reedus and Steven Yeun recently went out of their way to save some local Georgia residents from a car wreck while on the way to set.

We’ve just learned from TMZ that on Thursday, Norman Reedus and Steve Yeun, known for their respective roles as Daryl Dixon and Glenn Rhee, encountered a car accident while riding through Peach City, Georgia. Although the report seems to indicate that no serious injuries occurred as a result of the accident, the two beloved Walking Dead actors stuck around the scene to lend a helping hand, and wait until paramedics arrived to provide medical assistance.

Unfortunately, it seems as though fans of the series have searched high and low for clues as to whom Jeffrey Dean Morgan’s Negan used as batting practice during the Season 6 finale, so we have to emphasize that there probably isn’t much that we can glean from this specific report.

All that being said, we aren’t exactly surprised that Norman Reedus and Steve Yeun stopped to help the victims of this minor incident. Although we have recently reported on some mounting tensions between the production of The Walking Dead and the residents of the real-life Alexandria, the fact of the matter is that the community and the show have developed a fairly symbiotic relationship over the last few years. The hit AMC series has maintained a consistent presence in the American south since it premiered in 2010, causing a boom in business and tourism as its popularity has increased. Actors like Andrew Lincoln have vocally spoken out about their attempts to be good neighbors, and this seems like one of those examples.

It looks like Daryl and Glenn’s real life counterparts are just as capable of saving the day when the rubber hits the road. We will bring you more information concerning The Walking Dead as it becomes available to us; the show will return to AMC this October.
