Weird question! We don't know the character's birthdays, but Andrew Lincoln (Rick Grimes) and Jon Bernthal (Shane Walsh) are definitely both Virgos — while Sarah Wayne Callies (Lori Grimes) is a Gemini.

It's kind of a funny question to ask, but hey — Virgos and Geminis are supposed to be great together! According to, "Lively curiosity about a whole range of subjects and a desire to constantly expand your understanding could unite [Virgo and Gemini] in an exciting, endlessly stimulating relationship."

Who knows? Maybe it just worked out that way because of the amazing on-screen chemistry!

What Is The Governor's Tea?

We know what you're thinking, and we're pretty sure that The Governor's (David Morrissey) tea isn't zombie water. On The Talking Dead episode following Season 3, Episode 3 ("Walk With Me"), an astute viewer asked about the tea, and executive producer David Alpert responded, "It's a bit of a little inside joke. One of the writers on the show [...] always wears a jacket and tie, and he's always sort of drinking tea. And I think it's a little bit of a nod to one of the writers in the room."

Even if it's not zombie water, we're not sure which tea he's drinking. But if you want a teapot similar to the one The Governor uses, the IngenuiTEA from comes close!

Who Was Norman Reedus on Charmed?

Norman Reedus (Daryl Dixon) guest starred in two episodes of Charmed, both in Season 5 — "Sense and Sense Ability" and "Necromancing the Stone"! He played Nate Parks, an ex-boyfriend of Paige Matthews (Rose McGowan) and the owner of a local piano bar.

Paige really likes him, so she casts a spell to see how he'd react if he found out she's a witch. It turns out he'd be fine with it, but he does have a wife and two kids who might not be as understanding. Paige locked him in a cell until the next morning, but erased his memory before dumping him. Harsh!
