NEW JERSEY — Tempted to take a bite out of Norman Reedus, zombie-style? Don’t do it, he says.

The actor, who plays brooding fan favorite Daryl Dixon on AMC’s hit show “The Walking Dead,” posted an Instagram to that effect after a female fan apparently bit him during a photo op at a recent Walker Stalker convention in New Jersey.

The Instagram photo shows Reedus in a “Bite Me” T-shirt that appears to have been amended for the post to say “Do Not Bite Me,” with a caption that reads “Um please don’t.”

According to TMZ, Reedus is not pressing charges against the fan, who has been banned from future conventions.

Given the fictional walkers’ voracious desire to sink their teeth into something fleshy and the show’s massive and dedicated fan base, it’s not a huge shock that a fan finally got carried away.

But again, his message is clear: No biting the actors.
