Fresh off one of the most devastating episodes in the history of the show, some The Walking Dead news has surfaced that we admittedly should take with a grain of salt.
It's only an unverified source from OK! Magazine that claims this to be true, but if it's true, it's a little disheartening for fans of Rick Grimes. The news? It's that Rick Grimes (played by Andrew Lincoln) wants out of the series.
Check out this quote from that aforementioned unverified source. Keep in mind, this came from about a month ago:
"Andrew Lincoln, who plays deputy Rick Grimes, wants to be zombie feed! His rep denies it, but our sources are reporting that the actor is tired of dragging his wife and two kids from their native England to Georgia where the show shoots, so he is planning his exit."
It makes sense that a man with a family would want to end the constant relocating to Atlanta, Georgia thing that has taken over his life over the past few years. It's difficult, and any actor with a life outside of their career has to understand this.
However, I just don't know how they would kill him off, especially since he's still alive and kicking in the comics right now.
Recently, with Glenn getting killed off in brutal fashion, it seems that anyone is fair game, though. I'm pretty sure people want to see Carl and Rick together again at least one more time before he were to die.
These rumors are always kind of dicey, but a few months back, Andrew Lincoln accidentally gave away that Glenn would pass in this season, which ended up being true, of course.
There was this quote, though, from a rep who spoke with Gossip Cop that takes away from the validity of the claim that Lincoln wants out:
“Gossip Cop checked in with a rep for [Andrew] Lincoln, who tells us that there’s ‘no truth’ to the tabloid’s story about him wanting to leave the show.”
How could they kill off Rick? And would it be in a brutal fashion or would they let him die with some dignity? Is there even any legitimacy to this quote? The representatives for the actor are denying it to be true. What do you think?
