AMC has released the first production photo of actor Andrew Lincoln as Rick Grimes in Frank Darabont’s adaptation of Robert Kirkman’s “The Walking Dead.”
Executive producer Kirkman also told the AMC “Walking Dead” blog “Writing this book for the past seven years I’ve gotten very close to the character of Rick. Andrew Lincoln embodies every aspect of the character that fans know and love. After seeing this photo I don’t think that there will be a doubt in anyone’s mind that he’s perfect for the role.”
The six-episode run of “The Walking Dead” TV series debuts in October, and along with AMC’s official releases of information, plenty of other interesting tidbits about the show are hitting the web. Luckily, Spinoff Online has rounded up the details including new cast members such as Rick’s son and directing news past the pilot episode.
