This autograph session was three years in the making. Three years, so I was pretty excited and for once I can actually say my dad was excited because Norman is his favorite on The Walking Dead. Anyway, the first time we were supposed to meet him, there was such a huge line that they were handing out tickets and telling people to come back so we skipped it and watched from afar. The second time he cancelled which was pretty much a bummer, but the third time is a charm and we finally were able to meet him.
I have to say that in person Norman Reedus is one of the most down to earth people that I’ve met. He’s super nice, spends a lot of time with his fans and really interacts and listens to what they have to say. When you go up to his line, he has some heavy metal blasting and is first to offer to shake your hand and properly meet you. I let my dad take the glory here and talk to him the most, but I did briefly talk to him and we talked about my poster that was signed already. He said how he was getting better at spotting the other cast members autographs and I joked with him that I wanted him to be the first to sign, but Michael was out there first. He talked about catching the red eye to get to Orlando. After the session was over he shook our hands again and we were on our way.
I have to say that after waiting three years, it was definitely worth the wait. I had an awesome time meeting Norman and I was glad that my dad was finally able to meet him and interact with him. I will say though that Norman did cancel for Sunday and I totally missed the photo-op which did kind of suck because when I got notice to hurry and make the last photo-op of the day because Norman cancelled for Sunday I was already half way home. I do look forward to him being at another convention and finally getting a photo-op.
