Everyone knows that The Walking Dead's Norman Reedus is a huge star in the United States, drawing long lines of fans at his various appearances. However, what is Reedus' popularity like overseas?
Earlier today, Reedus posted to Instagram some video he took of a Japanese crowd's reaction as he arrived for an event in Tokyo, Japan. Yes, Reedus is bigger than Elvis in Japan as well it appears. Check out the video below of a packed crowd in some type of auditorium going wild as Reedus steps out on stage and says, "Hi."
Reedus and his Boondock Saints co-star Sean Patrick Flannery are in Tokyo, Japan this weekend for HollyCon Tokyo, a.k.a. Hollywood Collector's Convention No. 3. HollyCon Tokyo started a couple years back as the first comic-con like gathering held in Japan, and it seems to have grown into quite a popular event.
The Walking Dead Season Mid-Season premiere airs on Sunday, February 9, 2014.
