Andrew Lincoln explains why he quit The Walking Dead
So this is a huge change that is going to know about the series Walking Dead at the end of season 9, since it will come the time to say goodbye to Rick Grimes, the hero of the series.
We heard about this at the end of the month last may and it was a little hard to believe at the time : Andrew Lincoln, who plays the hero of the series, Rick Grimes, was going to leave The Walking Dead at the end of its ninth season. Information of the most surprising as well as a huge gamble for the show, which was recorded in the last few months its hearings the lowest, even though it was a new showrunner, in the person of Angela Kang.
This announcement was confirmed at the last Comic-Con by the actor himself without to the extent that it explains the reason. Conflict with the production ? Wage negotiations, which did not happen as planned ? A general weariness to do anything for 9 years ? We could all imagine. It is, therefore, likely to finish his career in the series that has made it known to the general public in beauty, Andrew Lincoln comes to explain in the calmest way in the world the reason for his departure to the micro-EW Radio he was little :
Andrew Lincoln was a little tired of being on the road and have the hair dirty
“I have two very young children and I live in another country. And the older they get and the less it is easy to make them come. It is as simple as that, it was time for me to go home. Finish the series it was like releasing a big breath of air and it was very satisfying, particularly in the last two episodes. But do a panel and speak in front of thousands of people before you do-hugs to my friends, it has made the real thing.”
So there, Andrew Lincoln simply wants to return to his native England to see his children grow up. There has been worse as a reason to leave. And history to ratify this important moment in the life of the series, a picture of the last taken of the actor on the plateau has been broadcast on the networks. Walking Dead will return on October 7.
