Actor Andrew Lincoln, who is currently working on the horror show ‘The Walking Dead’, says if he wasn’t starring in the show he would like nothing more than getting his hands on a lightsaber in the sci-fi franchise ‘Star Wars’.

Andrew Lincoln, 44, says he and his co-star Dave Morrissey, who played lead antagonist the governor in seasons 3 and 4, were surprised they never got roles in ‘Harry Potter’ as Britishers but they hope they will be in ‘Star Wars’ in the future, reports

“Dave Morrissey and I… we used to sort of joke that we were the only actors in British Equity that hadn’t been in the ‘Harry Potter’ franchise, so maybe I would have been wizarding about Hogwarts or hobbit-ing about Middle Earth. And I always fancied the idea of getting my hands around a lightsaber,” said Lincoln in an interview on ‘The Walking Dead’ after show ‘Talking Dead’.

The zombie horror series ‘The Walking Dead’ has just begun with its eighth installment. The series revolves around the character of Rick Grimes played by Andrew Lincoln who leads a group of survivors in Georgia during the zombie apocalypse. They try to sustain and protect themselves from the zombies. Talking about the survival of his character on the show, Andrew said, “I’ve said before, Rick does not survive to the end. It was years ago so you guys probably forgot, but I foresee there being more story after his eventual demise.”


Andrew Lincoln is popular for his stint in films like ‘Love Actually’, ‘Hey Good Looking!’, ‘These Foolish Things’, ‘Made in Dagenham’ among others.
