Andrew Lincoln Reveals His “Walking Dead” Party Trick with Ryan Seacrest
Andrew Lincoln – Rick Grimes from The Walking Dead – phoned in to On Air with Ryan Seacrest to talk about the upcoming finale of the hit AMC show and the British actor revealed how he conquered that Southern accent.
As for the notion that someone is going to die during the finale, Andrew confirms with a laugh, “Yeah, it’s a pretty safe bet” … although he wouldn’t say exactly what does go down in the episode.
But he was game to give us the scoop on how he perfected Rick Grimes’ Southern drawl.
“I’m a bit of a weirdo … I headed out three weeks before we started the first-ever episode and I went out and sort of went under cover and tried to orders coffees … in a dialect and then it became about fried chicken … and got more confident and after about two-and-a-half weeks, I had a passable accent and it’s kind of stuck really,” he shares.
Andrew goes on to say he also has a dialect coach who helps spell out the words, which he’s turned into a game.
“As a party trick back in England, I give my old
scripts to people who are half-drunk and they do the worst southern accent,” he jokes.
Catch The Walking Dead Season 4 finale on AMC on Sunday, March 30, at 9 p.m.

Andrew Lincoln Talks “The Walking Dead”: Rick Will Be Changed Forever
Sunday night fans will be tuning in to “The Walking Dead” finale airing on AMC. There haven’t been many specific “The Walking Dead” spoilers shared as of yet, but on March 27 The Walker Stalkers talked with Andrew Lincoln and he did reveal a few juicy tidbits. What can fans expect from Sunday’s season 4 finale? It will be filled with a lot of brutality and shocking moments from the sounds of it.
Some time back, Andrew Lincoln had teased that at some point this season he would be using a weapon he had never used before. He confirmed that Sunday is the day that this all goes down, and it sounds like it is going to be a truly shocking sequence. Lincoln even said that when he read the script and saw what they had in store, he called Scott Gimple and asked if they were really going there. Once he was told they were, he apparently embraced it and went all out.
Fans should be braced to see Andrew Lincoln go through something more difficult and shocking than he’s ever had to go through before. There have been some hints via the comic book storylines about what this might entail, and fans are anxious to see how it will all play out on screen.
The TV show and the comic books don’t always follow the same paths regarding story, but it is sounding more and more like it just may go that direction in this case. If that is the situation, fans should brace themselves to see something pretty wretched happened to Carl in Sunday’s episode.
It has been said that much of the theme this season is that the characters are looking to see if they can ever once again become who they used to be. Lincoln said for Rick that question is answered in Sunday’s episode, and it doesn’t necessarily sound like the answer is a positive one.
Andrew added that this is an exciting episode for him and one of his favorites that he has worked on. He notes that Rick will be irrevocably changed in this episode in a brutal way, but he noted there is grace in some of the moments ahead as well.
What do you think happens to Rick in the season 4 finale? Will everybody survive to face season 5? It is expected that viewers will get a hint of where things are headed for season 5, and it is also expected there will be a big cliffhanger, naturally. Tune into the season 4 finale of “The Walking Dead” airing on AMC on Sunday, March 30.

“The Walking Dead”: Robert Kirkman Says Season Finale Will ‘Shock People’
They finally reached Terminus! Or at least some of them did. Glenn, Maggie, Tara, Bob, Sasha, Abraham, Eugene, and Rosita all arrived to a place with flowers blooming, crops growing, and a woman named Mary offering them a plate a food. So what now? Are the other groups (Rick, Carl, and Michonne…Tyreese and Carol…Daryl and the marauders…Beth) far behind? Whatever happens on Sunday’s season 4 Walking Dead finale, creator Robert Kirkman promises it will be intense. And he also says it will all come down to former group leader Rick Grimes.
“This last half of season 4 has been a character defining group of stories for everyone,” Kirkman tells EW, “but really, Rick Grimes — really finding what this guy is going to be able to do and how he is going to carry on, and is he going to get these people back together, and where is he going to go from here? And I think there are some big questions that are asked that are going to be answered in this final episode.”
Well, we’d expect nothing less. But before you assume that it’s going to be all sunshine and unicorns if-and-when the gang reunites, Kirkman issues the following warning: “This is Rick Grimes being pushed to his absolute limit. And if you think you’ve seen that before, you haven’t. And the Rick Grimes that comes out of this is really going to shock people.”
Whatever does go down, it appears it is going to leave a lasting impression, and is something that will have Walking Dead fans talking/sobbing for months after. “We’re definitely going to being bringing things to another level,” promises Kirkman. “And the anticipation for the next season after this finale is unfortunately going to be a lot more heightened than it has been between any other season. So it’s going to be a rough summer for Walking Dead fans waiting for us to come back in the fall.”
Uh-oh. Does that sound like a cliffhanger to you? What do you think is going to happen on Sunday’s season finale? Is someone going to die? And if so, who? Hit the message boards with your theories.

“The Walking Dead”: Andrew Lincoln & Norman Reedus in Japanese Promo
Normally foreign promos for The Walking Dead share the best spoilers. But this one for the return of Season 4 in Japan doesn’t show a single piece of new footage. It’s still awesome, though, since it showcases two of the best things about the series: Norman Reedus (Daryl Dixon) and Andrew Lincoln (Rick Grimes).
The bromance buddies were in Tokyo last month, after visiting Singapore, and on February 3 Norman shared a tea ceremony photo from what must’ve been this promo shoot.
The video, labeled “Sound of Silence,” shows our boys in traditional Japanese attire as they drink their tea. Then they look at each other, Andy squints, and apparently they go off to be superheroes since they leave the room and the promo ends with the announcement that Season 4 is coming. Norman tweeted that it’s premiering March 2 on FOX Japan. It’s worth the wait, guys!
What’s better, getting a special promo like this featuring two of the main stars, or getting a promo that shares scenes from the upcoming season? Tell us which you prefer below!
In America, The Walking Dead Season 4 airs Sundays at 9 p.m. ET on AMC.
Andrew Lincoln Stars in Video Supporting Robin Hood Tax
David Yates, director of the Harry Potter movies, has enlisted actors Bill Nighy, Clémence Poésy and The Walking Dead’s Andrew Lincoln for a short satirical video calling for a Europe-wide banking transaction tax.
Known as the Robin Hood tax, the film coincides with a meeting of European finance ministers this week to discuss the introduction of the tax, which could help ease poverty in developing countries to the tune of £20 billion.
The film is set in 2024, celebrating the ‘anniversary’ of a 2014 decision to introduce the financial transactions tax. Lincoln begins: “So, ten years from what some people refer to as the ‘miracle tax’ started…”
“We look back on it as a profoundly important moment,” Poésy says. “It’s been good for business and it’s brought billions for jobs in Europe.”
Nighy’s character, British banking CEO ‘John Bostock’, mocks the country for refusing to enact the tax like other European countries. “As you know, we didn’t do it in the UK…” he says bitterly “We haven’t seen any benefits in terms of money to fight extreme poverty…jobs…no…public services…no…climate change…oh leave it alone.”
The Book Thief’s Heike Makatsch and Bad Education’s Javier Camara also appear on the panel.
Yates described the Robin Hood tax as “a simple yet brilliant idea”. “We need to learn the lessons of the financial crisis and ensure that banks and hedge funds work in the interest of society, not the other way around,” he told The Mirror.
Nighy, who starred in Christmas rom-com Love Actually alongside Lincoln, notes that France, Germany and nine other European countries are about to introduce the “tiny tax that could do so much good”.
“It would be deeply regrettable if the rest of the world were caught on the wrong side of history,” he added. “Introducing the tax alone will not be enough, the billions it will raise need to be invested in tackling poverty at home and abroad and fighting climate change.”
