As Rick Grimes has become more and more badass throughout the course of The Walking Dead, so too has his facial hair. Once clean shaven, Grimes now sports a totally epic beard, though recent reports suggest that he may be losing it sometime in the near future.
ComicBook.com reports that star Andrew Lincoln has popped up at recent press events without the beard, and since Season 5 is still filming, the new look seems to indicate that Grimes will soon come across a razor on a supply run.
But whether or not Grimes loses the beard in Season 5 isn’t what we’re here to talk about today. No, we’re here to talk about the whereabouts of Lincoln’s beard, the clippings of which are being stored in a highly unexpected place…
At this past weekend’s Walker Stalker Convention, Norman Reedus revealed that he’s in possession of the beard, and it can be found amongst his milk and strawberries.
“You know what’s crazy is I have his beard in a Ziploc bag in my refrigerator,” confessed Reedus. “True story.”
Yesterday, Reedus proved the statement over on his Instagram account, where he showed off the ultimate piece of Walking Dead memorabilia (above). He refers to the facial hair as ‘Andy,’ and as you can see it’s housed inside of a bag labeled ‘Rick’s Beard.’
Gotta love it!
