British actor Andrew Lincoln has become one of the most recognisable faces in the business, thanks to his role as Rick Grimes in the hit AMC zombie series The Walking Dead, which has also made him a very sought after actor in Hollywood. Andrew has appeared in a whole host of television shows and movies during his acting career but it seems that there is one role in particular that he would die for.
While Andrew Lincoln is somewhat limited to the movie roles he can take on, due to his commitment to playing Rick Grimes in The Walking Dead, he has been talking about some of the roles he would have liked to have played. Andrew says that he would have been interested in appearing in a Harry Potter movie or a Lord of the Rings film, while he also says he would love to appear in a Star Wars film.
Lincoln said, "Dave Morrissey and I ... we used to sort of joke that we were the only actors in British Equity that hadn't been in the 'Harry Potter' franchise, so maybe I would have been wizarding about Hogwarts or hobbit-ing about Middle Earth. And I always fancied the idea of getting my hands around a lightsaber."
With the Harry Potter films and the Lord of the Rings movies having come to an end a few years back, the only real option now is for Andrew Lincoln to bag a role in one of the new Star Wars movies, with a number of different Star Wars projects coming our way in the coming years. With that said, Andrew is still a huge part of The Walking Dead and it would be hard to fit both in at the same time.
