Walking Dead stars win over crowd in Singapore

Stars of the popular television horror drama The Walking Dead dodged zombies and exhibited their survival prowess in an obstacle course at Lasalle College of the Arts earlier this afternoon.

Surrounded by more than 250 screaming fans, actors Andrew Lincoln, who plays Rick Grimes, and Norman Reedus, whose on-screen persona is Daryl Dixon, used Nerf Blasters and Crossbows, toy weapons that fire foam bullets and arrows, to shoot targets, in an attempt to save hostages.

The celebrities then stopped to oblige throngs of adoring fans with selfies, autographs and group photographs.

The television show, which releases the second part of its fourth season on Feb 10, is based on a comic book series of the same name. In it, humans fight for their survival in a post-apocalyptic world overrun by flesh-eating zombies, better known as walkers.
