In the second season of the show, Andrea shot at Daryl, mistaking him for a walker. The character was getting a little too aggressive with her gun and was shooting at practically everything and everyone. This caused fans to be outraged and to take things a little too seriously. Laurie Holden's death threats caused her to panic a bit and she confided in Norman Reedus about what was happening.
Executive producer Gale Anne Hurd asked Norman Reedus to take a photograph with Laurie Holden. They all hoped this would let viewers know that the actress did not really try to gun down Daryl and that she was simply playing a role on a television show. Their goal was to stop Laurie Holden's death threats.
It is alarming how some fans cannot tell the difference between reality and TV. The actress recently had to address fans on Twitter to tell people that she is not Andrea, but an actress who plays Andrea on "The Walking Dead."
A few months ago, a man shot his girlfriend over an argument over "The Walking Dead."
Television is not reality and all the actors on the show are just playing characters with props. Nobody is actually getting killed on the show and as a reminder, those zombies are not real either. It's one thing to be passionate about a great show like "The Walking Dead," it's quite another to be delusional.
What do you think about Laurie Holden's death threats? Do you think Norman Reedus taking a picture with the actress helped reassure crazy fans?
