It was a case of life imitating art for The Walking Dead actor Norman Reedus who found himself the target of a real-life bite attack.

Reedus, who battles fictional flesh-eating zombies on the hit AMC series as Daryl Dixon - was attending a zombie convention when the incident happened.

TMZ reports that the female fan bit the actor's chest while posing for a photo at the Walker Stalker Con.

She had also reportedly told everyone that they were married (because biting someone is okay if you're married?).

The flesh-eating fan was removed by security and Norman joked about it on Twitter, posting a pic of himself in a vest emblazoned with the message, "DO NOT BITE ME" with the caption, "Um, please don't".

Poor Norman.

Um please don't
