12 Things You Didn’t Know About Andrew Lincoln

"The Walking Dead" Panel At New York Comic Con

The Walking Dead returned from its mid-season break this week. Sunday’s new episode drew in 15.8 million viewers, which is just a little shy of the 16.1 million who tuned into the fall premiere. The episode even outperformed The Winter Olympic in the coveted 18-49 Demographic. Andrew Lincoln stars as the anti-hero Rick Grimes on this popular series. Here are a few fun facts you may not know about the talented actor.

1. For starters, his name is not really Andrew Lincoln. He was born Andrew James Clutterbuck. He chose the stage name while attending college. He thought the last name Clutterbuck sounded like a poor character in a Charles Dickens novel.
