AMC, now shooting The Walking Dead in Georgia, just revealed the following image and brief press release:
AMC RELEASES THE FIRST PHOTO OF ANDREW LINCOLN AS RICK GRIMES
Robert Kirkman, creator/writer of the comic and executive producer on the series says:
"Writing this book for the past seven years I’ve gotten very close to the character of Rick. Andrew Lincoln embodies every aspect of the character that fans know and love. After seeing this photo I don’t think that there will be a doubt in anyone’s mind that he’s perfect for the role."
