Whether you do or do not believe that The Walking Dead is a television show that should have ended a long time ago, there will be a tinge of sadness amongst current and past fans of this show when Andrew Lincoln bids farewell to his character of Rick Grimes once Season 9 ends. From the comments given by fellow cast members Jeffrey Dean Morgan and Norman Reedus at the Variety Studio during San Diego Comic-Con, it is clear to see that they have nothing but positive things to say about Andrew Lincoln.
Jeffrey Dean Morgan
This is what Jeffrey Dean Morgan, who plays Negan in The Walking Dead, had to say about Andrew Lincoln and his impending departure from the TV show:
“He’s like a true No. 1 on that call sheet. He is the leader of this show and everyone kind of follows his lead and he leads with his heart, and that’s a very rare quality.”
“This show really is a family and I think a lot of that has to do with Andy…Andy has always been the guy, and the show is going to miss him, we’re going to miss him. It’s going to be a different vibe, there’s no replacing him.”
Norman Reedus has co-starred alongside Andrew Lincoln since Season 1 of The Walking Dead as the character of Daryl Dixon and he had this to say about the production ritual he and Lincoln have together:
“He’s the first call I get when I wake up. He calls me, we talk about the day as we’re driving to work, we get to work, talk about the day, at lunch he’s in my trailer, and then we wrap and he calls me on the way home. It’s been like that every day. He’s our quarterback.”
