The 45-year-old actor has been busy the past few years making hearts beat a little faster every time he comes on screen in the zombie apocalypse TV series since its 2010 premiere.
In honor of Reedus' stamp on pop culture thanks to "The Walking Dead," we've taken a look at all the reason Daryl Dixon continues to be one of the show's fan favorite characters.
As many fans have made clear, if Daryl dies, we riot.
Here are some key examples of Reedus' swoon-worthiness on "The Walking Dead":
His love of convenience store food
His necklace of ears
Always being hard
Finding his center
Being a perfect shot
No matter what with
His evasive maneuvers
Knowing how to make somebody blush
Winning with pet names
And being a great receiver of them
Respecting the bromance
In all shapes and sizes
Always being down for a good time
His love of flora
And how women respond to it
His way with babies
The name 'Lil A**-Kicker'
Happy birthday, Norman!
