After last night’s outstanding and outright terrifying The Walking Dead season premiere, we’ve got a little news about the show’s star Andrew Lincoln. Lincoln has knocked the lead role of Rick Grimes as far out of the park as humanly possible, and has grabbed the attention of Hollywood in the process.
The Englishman spent a lot of time on British TV before doing Love Actually, but that wasn’t quite the push into film he was looking for. The Walking Dead is a different story. Lincoln recently spoke with Total Film about his present and future and had this to say about his career and where he’d like to see it go:
Not that the actor doesn’t want to work in film, he just hasn’t had the right timing to make it happen. But with AMC sparing no expense on the production of The Walking Dead, it seems that Lincoln’s itch for Hollywood film making is being sufficiently scratched.
As the star of a show like The Walking Dead, Lincoln won’t get much of an off-season once filming for the show wraps up since he’ll surely follow production up with publicity and then before you know it they’ll be back on set for season three. As The Walking Dead continues to be one of the best and most watched shows on TV, the film offers will likely continue to pour in for Lincoln, so here’s hoping the Brit finds the time for the big screen very soon.
