SDCC 2018 – WATCH: Andrew Lincoln says goodbye to The Walking Dead

July 21st, 2018 by Marc Comments

Well, there’s no going back now…

We’ve known for a while that Rick Grimes AKA actor Andrew Lincoln was leaving The Walking Dead but some held out hope that it wasn’t true.

Well, straight from SDCC 2018, Lincoln himself has confirmed he’s leaving a said goodbye to everyone.

He said:

“This will be my last season playing the part of Rick Grimes. I love this show. It means everything to me. I love the people who make this show. I promise not to cry. I’m particularly fond of the people who watch the show. It’s been the most extraordinary experience of my career largely because of you guys. The relationship we have here in this room, in rooms everywhere really.

“I want to thank you…but my relationship with Rick is far from over. Part of me will always be a…zombie slayer from England. I’m excited by this season. Two of the episodes are my favorite since the pilot. But no one is bigger than the story and the story this year is unbelievable.”

Goodbye Rick. It’s been a journey…

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
