The cast and crew of The Walking Dead say that once you are part of the show’s family, you remain a member of that tight-knit clan forever, and although we initially had our doubts about that sweet sentiment, it seems to be very true.

Norman Reedus (Daryl Dixon) was at a Wizard World convention this past weekend, as was Meyrick Murphy, who played Megan Chambler in Season 4 before getting bitten by a walker, and even though the two actors never shared screen time together, Norman still took time to snap a sweet selfie with Meyrick and the resulting photo is pretty freakin’ adorable.

Meyrick posted the final product to her Instagram page, writing, “@bigbaldhead,” preceded by a peace sign. In the photo we see Norman rocking some edgy shades and a baseball cap in the upper lefthand corner, while little Meyrick is in the bottom righthand corner with her own pair of stylish glasses. Additional too-cute-for-words details include Meyrick’s braid and her sweet smile.

Norman may play the ultimate badass on television, but it’s clear that he’s a real teddy bear at heart with a special soft spot for the kids of TWD. Even his on-screen character, Daryl, affectionately refers to baby Judith as Lil’ asskicker.

What do you think of Norman and Meyrick’s photo together? Take a look at it and tell us your thoughts below!

The Walking Dead Season 5 premieres in October 2014 on AMC.
