The Walking Dead's Andrew Lincoln Talks Season Two

Andrew Lincoln takes time out at PaleyFest 2011 to talk about season two of The Walking Dead, and how he would like to see his character, Rick, develop. Head in for more...



The guys over at Zap2It are on location at PaleyFest 2011 and they have reported on a chat they had with star Andrew Lincoln about the upcoming season.

"It's a big responsibility," Lincoln tells Zap2it. "The weather is apocalyptic, if you've been to Atlanta. But, I love playing this character. I love it. He's so complicated and so driven and so different to me. It's a very satisfying role."

Currently, the writers are just starting on Season 2, but that doesn't mean the actors don't have their own desires for the future of their characters. So, we asked Lincoln what he wants for Rick next season.

"Episode off," he jokes. "There's loads of things. I mean one of the great things about being in the writers' room with the team is so many ideas that I had about where I wanted him to go. You know, he's a righteous guy. He has good intentions, but I think that I want it to adhere closely to the narrative in the book, as well. It's that the pressure, the responsibility, the domestic situations, the parenting has its toll on him. He can't keep sustaining this. He can't keep coming up with the goods. I would like to see him maybe deteriorate and maybe we see a darker side of him."

"I think it's just one of the great things we're afforded in this series," he says. "A bad decision can cost a life in this and the stakes are so high, so hopefully that makes for real raw, compelling drama."


I for one cannot wait for the new season, this is one of the best shows on TV at the moment, maybe even ever...
