Never Forget That Time Norman Reedus Played Lady Gaga's Lover in a Music Video

The year is 2011. Lady Gaga is mere weeks away from dropping her third studio album, Born This Way. To get her fans good and prepped for the highly anticipated release, she releases a music video for "Judas," the second single off the album. Meanwhile in 2017, Gaga's spectacular Super Bowl halftime show performance, announcement of her Joanne World Tour, and release of the "John Wayne" music video have sent fans into a tizzy. As I, a longtime fan, tried to process everything, I was sent spiraling back into some of Gaga's most iconic videos, where I made a shocking discovery. Norman Reedus, who plays Daryl on AMC's The Walking Dead, was in the "Judas" music video all those years ago. TWD, a new show at the time, had just finished its first season, and Reedus hopped on a different motorcycle for an entirely different role: as Judas himself.
