‘The Walking Dead’ Star Andrew Lincoln Talks Family And Zombies With Rachael Ray

British actor Andrew Lincoln stopped by to chat with Rachael Ray about family, zombies, and more.


In an episode that will air tomorrow, February 29th, Andrew touches on a variety of topics – including his role in the hit movie ‘Love Actually’. Here are a few highlights from the interview:

Andrew’s daughter tells her classmates he shoots zombies for a career:

“Yeah, well I dropped her off at school the other day and she’s just started this new school in England, it’s a little bit like Hogwarts, you know, I expect Harry Potter to be teaching them and basically I heard as I was leaving one of the girls said, “What does your daddy do for a living?” and she just said, “he shoots zombies”.

Andrew on his family’s (wife Gael and a son and daughter) split life between England and the states:

“They love it. I mean, we live this very schizophrenic life where we have half the year in England and then everybody comes out with me. My daughter started to get an American accent after about a year.”

On his role in “Love Actually”:

“Actually, funny enough, I think that is one of the most romantic movies I have ever been involved in and I’m the only guy that doesn’t get the girl, which is yeah…”

Andrew on if he would be a hider or fighter in a zombie apocalypse:

“I’d be a cooker probably, I love cooking. I do love cooking and I would be useless in a real [zombie apocalypse]…but I like slow cooking food. That’s kind of my big thing at the moment. We enjoy roasts and that kind of thing.”

Tune in tomorrow for the full interview!
