'The Walking Dead' star Andrew Lincoln says to fear the beard in season 5

Posted on

No doubt about it: Rick Grimes has been in some hairy situations on The Walking Dead. And none have been hairier than that thing currently growing on his face. Some manly stubble has given way to a full-on assault of whiskers. Which I suppose is appropriate, this being the zombie apocalypse and all. After all, one has to assume the Gillette factory to be something less than fully operational these days.

But how does the man who plays Grimes, Andrew Lincoln, feel about the beard? Because we leave absolutely no stone —nor razor — uncovered here in our Walking Dead coverage, we asked him, and you can see Lincoln’s positively delightful answer in the video player below.
