‘Walking Dead’ Actor’s Step To Stardom
Posted by Vicki on Mar 2, 2012 Comments Off

SOMETIMES actors toil in the industry for years before they land one special role that catapults them into the big league. In the case of English actor Andrew Lincoln, that role was as Sheriff’s deputy Rick Grimes in the hit series, The Walking Dead.

Lincoln already has a decent body of work before that, having starred in TV series such as This Life, Teachers and Afterlife in the UK, and films such as Love Actually and Heartbreaker. But somehow stardom and international recognition eluded him until The Walking Dead came along.

His role as Rick, who wakes up from a coma only to find himself in a post-apocalyptic world overrun by “the walking dead”, has made him a star.

The Walking Dead is based on a comic book series of the same name written by Robert Kirkman. In the TV series, Rick leaves the hospital to search for his family only to find the devastation caused by the “walkers”.

Rick then finds his wife Lori and son Carl who have joined forces with Rick’s best friend Shane and a small group of survivors.

As this small group struggles to survive, Rick must contend with Shane’s growing animosity towards him as he (Shane) had taken his place in the family. Others in the group, too, begin to question Rick’s leadership.

During a tele-conference interview with Lincoln from New York, the actor said that post-apocalyptic stories have always been popular with viewers. The Walking Dead is an out-and-out horror series and there is a big fan base for that.

David Morrissey Joins ‘Walking Dead’ Cast As Governor
Posted by Vicki on Feb 26, 2012 Comments Off

Los Angeles: British actor David Morrissey has been cast as The Governor in the hit zombie series ‘The Walking Dead,’ AMC said Friday.

The Governor, from Robert Kirkman`s “Walking Dead” comic book, is the leader of Woodbury, a survivor settlement. Eventually, The Governor becomes the chief antagonist of former sheriff`s deputy Rick Grimes (portrayed by Andrew Lincoln) and his group.

The character is beyond creepy. (Warning: Spoilers galore in this paragraph.) In the comics, he keeps a zombified girl named Penny whom he says is his daughter, and at once point removes her teeth so he can kiss her. Readers of Kirkman`s “Dead” novel, “Rise of the Governor” learned that the character, who calls himself Philip Blake, is actually impersonating his ruthless dead brother.

Morrissey has starred in TV offerings such as ‘State of Play’ and “Blackpool,” as well as films such as ‘The Reaping’ and ‘The Other Boleyn Girl.’ He has been nominated twice for a BAFTA Award.

The 16-episode season of “Walking Dead” begins production in Atlanta this spring.

The Walking Dead’s Andrew On Rick VS Shane: “Not Everybody Gets Out Alive”
Posted by Vicki on Feb 26, 2012 Comments Off

“I’m not the good guy anymore.”

Those words are spoken by The Walking Dead‘s Rick Grimes during one of several intense conversations on Sunday’s episode (9/8c, AMC) of the zombie drama. According to series star Andrew Lincoln, he’s been waiting a long time to hear his character say just that.

The Walking Dead boss: Lori has become Lady Macbeth

Lincoln tells TVGuide.com his favorite part of the graphic novel series that inspired the show was watching Rick devolve from the upstanding sheriff’s deputy to a man willing to do almost anything to survive during lawless, zombie-infested times. That transformation is about to happen on-screen.

“The thing I loved about the second half of the season is that you’re moving in a direction that I think the comic book reached a bit sooner than we did in the TV show,” he says. “With the death of Sophia, something dies in Rick. He has to reevaluate how he’s been viewing the world and how to live in this world. I think he’s moving much more toward Shane’s sensibility.”

Shane (Jon Bernthal) has become a bit of an outcast among the survivors because of his increasingly hot-tempered, erratic behavior (everyone remembers the zombie massacre in Hershel’s barn, yes?), not to mention his continued questioning of Rick’s leadership. Those issues will come to a head in Sunday’s when Shane and Rick venture out alone to dispose of Randall (guest star Michael Zegen), the straggler Rick rescued after the shootout at the bar.


Andrew’s Journey From Love To Zombies

The Walking Dead season two begins on Wednesday at 9.30pm on FX. For a review of the episode, visit A&L’s Scene & Heard blog at www.thenational.ae/national-blog

When Andrew Lincoln was approached by the television channel AMC three years ago for a possible lead role in a television series called The Walking Dead, he was thrilled.

After all, AMC was the acclaimed production home for the Emmy Award-winning dramas Mad Men and Breaking Bad. And the project was to be helmed by the acclaimed film director Frank Darabont; responsible for the likes of The Shawshank Redemption and The Green Mile.

But then the 38-year-old English actor read the first page of the proposal.

“Underneath the title it said: ‘zombie, survival, horror’,” he says. “I phoned up my agent and said: ‘Is this a joke or some elaborate mistake?’ And he said: ‘No, no, trust me. It’s going to be an apocalyptic Lord of the Flies’. And I thought right, I will take your word for it.”

His agent certainly earned his commission, as the series went on to inspire a rabid fan following and a Golden Globe nominee last year for Best Television Drama. In the eyes of American viewers at least, the role elevated Lincoln from Keira Knightley’s painfully shy love interest in 2003′s romantic comedy Love Actually to a vampire-slaying cult hero.

Meaning and Compatibility of Chinese Zodiac
Posted by Vicki on Feb 23, 2012 Comments Off

In the past, the earth, wood, fire, metal and water have been identified as the five factors of nature. Each of the five elements has distinctive quality of supporting or producing one more element, at the same time since the good quality of weakening or destroying one more component. Such as water can place out fire (destruction) and might make wood grow, the wood is then burned to build fire and fire minimizes to ash therefore settling to the earth, and so on.

Let us discuss more deeply: metal generates water, water creates wood, wood develops fire, fire creates earth and earth will then produces metal. Nonetheless, there are also a cycle of incompatibilities: metal can ruin wood, wood can destroy the earth, earth can ruin water, water can ruin fire and fire can then ruin the metal. In Chinese astrology there aren’t any strongest or strongest element, each component is equally essential and strong.

Chinese Calender Science has researched that the five aspects have been weighted for their weakness and strength during each of the four seasons. Fire is the strongest in summer, wood will be the strongest in spring, earth will probably be the strongest during the season transitions, and so forth. Each of those components also has its characteristics, strength as well as compatibility with other elements. The 5 aspects and their relationship or interaction with one another is the basic portion utilized in Chinese philosophy and astrology.

These components have been linked with five planets in the ancient; Jupiter for Wood, Saturn for Earth, Mars for Fire, Mercury for Water and Venus for Metal. Astrologers want to find out the positions of those planets to know what exactly are the issues and which will dominate a person in her or his lifestyle. The Chinese five elements will also be linked with certain colors. For instance green is related with wood, brown with the earth, red with fire, white with metal and black using the water.

These aspects will also be associated with Chinese zodiac animals. Fire is associated with the Snake, Horse along with the Sheep. Wood is associated together with the Rabbit, Tiger along with the Dragon. Metal is linked with the Monkey, Rooster and also the Dog. Water is linked together with the Pig, Rat and the Ox. To become much more comprehensive, the five components may also be applied not only to the colors, seasons and zodiac animals but also to the directions, sounds, hrs, days, months and many years.

Andrew: I Have A Mad Life Where I Shoot Zombies For A Living
Posted by Vicki on Feb 20, 2012 Comments Off

How does it feel to be back home after six months filming in Georgia?

It’s great to be home and to catch up with family and mates. But we got back at the end of November and I immediately contracted some sort of horrible consumption-like illness. I thought it was a zombie virus but it turned out to be a Dickensian  disease that lasted all of Christmas and January.

You must need a rest after fending off all those zombies again. Are you getting the chance to put your feet up?

We have just moved house to a place in the countryside, so I am pretty busy planting trees and trying to keep chickens and ducks alive. It’s not going very well so far.

Was it a culture shock to film in the Deep South and get the accent right?

I have this mad sort of life now where I get on a plane, then I get off at the other end and I’m given a new phone – it’s called a cell phone – and I speak in a different dialect, and they give me  different currency, and I shoot zombies for a living.

Did you take your wife and your two young children out to Georgia with you?

Yes. I really wouldn’t be able to do it without them being there with me. When we are there, we live in Atlanta, which is a really amazing city, and we have made some incredibly good friends there. I think that is one of the big advantages of being an actor – getting the chance to go to places you would never have gone to otherwise.
