The Walking Dead's Most Outspoken and Effusive Promoter Doesn't Actually Watch the Show
— “Big. Very big. Ambitious. Brave … I think the storytelling is astonishing. “— Andrew Lincoln on season six.
— “I mean it’s completely uncompromising and it’s almost like there’s a mini pilot episode in the middle of the season and it’s nuts. It’s f—ing nuts!” — Andrew Lincoln, on the back half of season 5.
— “I think episodes nine and 10 are two of my favorites. They’re brutal. They’re incredibly emotional, and I think there will be a lot of surprises along the way.” Andrew Lincoln, on season 5’s ninth and tenth episode.
— “Brutal is the word for this season. It’s always been pretty intense, but this season I think is very hard hitting. People should be prepared for that.” — Andrew Lincoln on season 5.
— “The people left are going to be just as equally pragmatic and brutal, and tough, and resilient. So the clash in this season, and the conflict and the fear and the terror comes directly from the humans.” Andrew Lincoln, on season 5.
— “The theme could be summed up as a question, which is: Can we ever come back? Can we ever return from the things we’ve done? The brutality of the world? The horrors that we’ve seen? Can we ever love again? Can we ever be the people we once were for the sake of our children?” Andrew Lincoln, on season three.
— “It got crazier and crazier. It just gets deeper, darker, more twisted as the time passes.” — Andrew Lincoln, on season one.
— From a season three interview:
I know you don’t watch the show. Just explain to me why that is. What’s the reasoning for not watching?
ANDREW LINCOLN: I don’t actually enjoy looking at myself.
