Birth Place: London, England, UK

In 1973 actor Andrew Lincoln was born Andrew James Clutterbuck in London. Lincoln's father was an English civil engineer and his mother was a nurse. The family relocated to the Bath region of England when Lincoln was around nine years old. He began acting in school plays, making his first appearance as The Artful Dodger in a production of Oliver. After spending a summer in the National Youth Theatre in London, Lincoln elected to pursue acting a full-time career. Upon leaving high school Lincoln matriculated at Royal Academy of Dramatic Art, where he adopted the stage name Andrew Lincoln.

Lincoln began his television career on British TV in 1994 in an episode of the comedy series "Drop the Dead Donkey" (Channel 4, 1990-98). He worked consistently in British TV throughout the 90s and 2000s, in series and TV movies like "This Life" (BBC, 1996-97), "The Woman in White" (1997), "The Canterbury Tales" (2003), and "Wuthering Heights" (2009). In 2010 Lincoln was cast in the American series "The Walking Dead" (AMC 2010-). Lincoln played the protagonist, Rick Grimes, the leader of a group of people who are attempting to survive a zombie apocalypse. Lincoln married Gael Anderson in 2006. In 2018 Lincoln departed "The Walking Dead" in order to spend more time with his family.
