Norman Reedus, who plays Daryl Dixon, a good-hearted redneck biker on "The Walking Dead," wasn't always the crossbow expert he appears to be when he's shooting down zombies on the hit AMC show.


Reedus appeared on "Conan" last night and released some footage of himself when he was a crossbow newbie. Watch Reedus fumble around with the unwieldy weapon and accidentally hurt his instructor. He seems to think the crossbow is more of a charging spear at first or maybe a ninja star. Reedus gives us hope that we can all be expert zombie killers one day, even if the video doesn't seem entirely authentic.
