The Walking Dead: Memorable times for Andrew Lincoln


The cast of The Walking Dead has had so many moments on set. How could they chose one day or moment as a favorite or best day on set?

That’s exactly what Entertainment Weekly tried to get them to do when they interviewed many of them while they were, of course, on set for season 6. Danai Gurira and Norman Reedus both chose moments involving walkers and walker fun. Steven Yeun chose the days each season when they are all on set at after the break at the start of a new season.

Andrew Lincoln talked about 2 things that are memorable for him. The first one being part of the first episode. It’s something that’s very memorable for every Walking Dead fan as well.

“I would have to say one of the most memorable times was riding the horse into Atlanta. Just because of the scale. It was at that point that I realized, oh, this is not like any TV show I’ve ever been involved in. It’s much better than a lot of movies — the ambition of the show.”

Something else that creates memorable experiences for Andrew, and, I’m sure the rest of the cast and crew are the losses and the uniqueness of each day . I imagine it is rewarding and challenging to do work that is so different all the time yet within the same story and as the same character. The losses are really difficult as stories and I’m sure it’s difficult to lose the actors as well.

“When we lose a character, it’s always one of the more painful experiences. But generally they’re incredible acting pieces to get involved in. It’s a double-edged sword. It’s funny, I bumped into Sarah Wayne Callies [who played Lori] and she said, ‘How’s it going?’ I said, ‘It’s still the most beautiful job, but it’s kind of heartbreaking.’ As I go along, we keep losing incredible friends and characters. It sort of kills me doing this job — but in a beautiful way. It’s a great story. But every day is unique, and that’s one of the things that keeps me coming back for more and wanting to keep pushing this guy and pulling the rest of the cast along with me to create this broken fairy tale.”

I love the expression broken fairy tale. It’s an interesting comparison considering Robert Kirkman has said he wanted to tell the story of when zombie movies end. The story after the credits. This is the fairy tale after the “happily ever after.”
