Andrew Lincoln recently earned a nomination for Best Actor in a Drama Series at the 2013 Critics’ Choice Television Awards for his role in The Walking Dead, in addition to 2011 and 2013 Saturn Awards nominations for his work on the series.
Lincoln made his television debut in the 1994 series Drop the Dead Donkey. His first major role was in BBC’s drama This Life. Since then, his television credits have included This Woman in White, Bomber, A Likeness in Stone, Trevor’s World of Sport, Canterbury Tales, Whose Baby?, Lie with Me, and Teachers, on which Lincoln also made his directorial debut and was nominated for BAFTA TV Award for Best New Director (Fiction). More recently, Lincoln has played major roles in Strike Back and Stephen Volk’s Afterlife, for which he won a Golden Nymph Award for Outstanding Actor in a Drama Series.
Lincoln made his big-screen debut as Ted in Paul Hills’ 1995 drama Boston Kickout. However, film audiences perhaps best know him for his role in Richard Curtis’ Love Actually. Other film credits include Enduring Love, Human Traffic, These Foolish Things, Hey Good Looking!, Scenes of a Sexual Nature, Heartbreaker, and Made in Dagenham. He also appeared in Moonshot, a movie for American television, and Wuthering Heights for ITV.
A veteran of the theater, Lincoln also starred in many theatrical productions including Jez Butterworth’s Parlour Song at London’s Almeida Theatre, Joe Penhall’s Blue/Orange at the National Theatre, Jonathan Harvey’s AIDS drama Hushabye Mountain, and Sam Shepard’s The Late Henry Moss.
