Biography

Born Andrew James Clutterbuck, some might say Andrew Lincoln was destined to be known by yet another name:  Rick Grimes.  Although British, the son of a South African mother and English father, Lincoln mastered the southern twang of The Walking Dead's primary hero, officer Rick Grimes, and fashioned a stunningly multidimensional persona around the iconic character who is the leader of a pack of shell shocked survivors trying to get by in the wake of a zombie apocalypse. In what has to be one of the wildest coincidences ever, Lincoln debuted his acting chops in an episode of Channel 4's Sitcom "Drop the Dead Donkey" titled "Births and Deaths" — both titles seeming to portent his future success on The Walking Dead.  His first major role was Edgar "Egg" Cook on the acclaimed BBC drama This Life.  He was also well regarded for his portrayal of psychologist Robert Bridge in Afterlife.
