This week marks 41 years of Andrew Lincoln's existence. We are thankful for his coiffed hair, his eyes and his adorableness on The Walking Dead. And so is his co-star Norman Reedus!

British-born Lincoln has been wooing our hearts over the past decade with supporting roles in Teachers and Afterlife. And then there was his role as love-struck Mark who fancies Keira Knightley in Love Actually:

That movie came out when I was 10 - but trust me, I was old enough to know that Mark was an angel of Enrique Iglesias calibre. Lincoln loved it too:

It sort of sent shivers because I just loved it. It’s always nice, being in a romantic film, but playing the only guy who doesn’t get the girl — not getting the girl in that manner is absolutely beautiful.

Lincoln has starred as Rick Grimes on The Walking Dead since 2010.

His everyman greatness as a small-town Sheriff who awakens from a coma to find the world overrun with zombies totally charmed us. Season 5 will premiere on October 29.

Happy Birthday to our favourite zombie slayer!
