Spotlight on: Andrew Lincoln

Lights off, spotlight on! Time to see in which series this actor portrayed a character.

There, Halloween is over again. Enough creeping around, time for some real horror. Horror is one of the favorite genres of Guillermo del toro. Ever seen the movies Pan's Labyrinth or The Shape of Water? You should! Absolutely amazing. Del Toro won quite a few awards for his creations. Not a strange thing that Netflix wasn't afraid to sign a deal with him.

This deal resulted in Guillermo del Toro's Cabinet of Curiosities. A collection of sinister stories, each more gruesome than the last. In the series, we see one actor who has gotten quite famous due to his participation in one of the biggest horror series of the last decade: Andrew Lincoln.

Lincoln was born as Andrew James Clutterbuck - the horror - and started his career on the small screen back in 1994. A guest role in the successful BBC satire Drop the Dead Donkey. After two years, a guest role in Bramwell follows, after which he gets even more responsibility with a role in This Life. The British drama series has two seasons and focuses on the lives of five young professionals. Lincoln portrays Edgar 'Egg' Cook, one of those youngsters who is looking for success. A famous actor who was also part of this series is Jack Davenport (Pirates of the Caribbean).

Mersey Blues is Lincoln's next project on the small screen. The British actor keeps switching between series and (television)movies to further his career. The aforementioned series doesn't really help. "Blues" doesn't get any further than a pilot episode.

The dramedy Teachers does a lot better. The turn of the century has happened by now, we've survived the millennium bug, and children are still going to school. These schools, naturally, feature a lot of teachers. These teachers also happen to be the Teachers that are followed over the course of four seasons. After that, Lincoln acquires roles in Trevor's World of Sport and Canterbury Tales, after which he shines alongside a lot of famous stars in the movie Love Actually.

A pitstop at Holby City for an uncredited guest role is followed by a role in the series Afterlife. Based on this English production, Lincoln has become a well-known name. He portrays one of the lead characters. As Robert Bridge, a professor, he has to deal with one supernatural case after another alongside the medium Alison Mundy (Lesley Sharp).

Subsequently, Lincoln is part of the miniseries Wuthering Heights alongside Tom Hardy. He can also be seen in Strike Back, a series that focuses on a section of the British secret service that deals with highly specialized operations that often cannot bear the light of day.

After this, his real big breakthrough follows. And that also brings us back to the horror genre. When you say Andrew Lincoln, you think of Rick Grimes. You immediately move towards The Walking Dead. For more than 100 episodes, he dodged zombies, bullets, baseball bats, and all kinds of shady types in order to protect his son and group of friends. Sometimes he wasn't able to. Many were killed, devoured, eaten, or even returned as zombies. The expression of despair was an emotion that could often be seen on Lincoln's face.

At some point, Rick Grimes was done. But not quite yet. Even though he said goodbye to his comrades in the desolate world of The Walking Dead, he had a brief appearance on Fear the Walking Dead. Next to that, there is also a currently unnamed spin-off featuring love interest Michonne (Danai Gurira) on the horizon.

Until then, Lincoln - as a guest - can be seen in the twisted mind of Guillermo del Toro. His cabinet of curiosities can only procure even more strange, terrifying stories. They often only have a realistic edge, but somehow also feel lifelike. The expectations are high, let's see if Lincoln is also able to live up to the hype.
