AMC has released the first image of Andrew Lincoln as the character Rick Grimes from the set of The Walking Dead miniseries adaptation.
Robert Kirkman, the creator of the comic and executive producer on the series says:
“Writing this book for the past seven years I’ve gotten very close to the character of Rick. Andrew Lincoln embodies every aspect of the character that fans know and love. After seeing this photo I don’t think that there will be a doubt in anyone’s mind that he’s perfect for the role.”
The Walking Dead will premiere on AMC in October 2010 during AMC Fearfest.
