Andrew Lincoln’s role in The Walking Dead shows that you don’t have to be a superhero to break America - From the Guardian
For the AMC cable and satellite channel, the show has been a consistent ratings smash, at one time beating everything in broadcast and cable in the valuable 18-49 age group.
At the centre of the action is the Rada-trained Lincoln, 43, who began his career in the BBC drama This Life, followed by roles such as Simon in the Channel 4 sitcom Teachers and Mark in the romantic comedy film Love Actually.
But the fact that The Walking Dead hasn’t produced any breakout stars makes its success all the more improbable although it has been a friend to British actors, including David Morrissey as the mass-murdering governor, and Lennie James as the Zen-master Morgan.
And in the new series, the world no longer belongs to Rick.
I love the fact that everybody is so engaged with it and so opinionated about it.
