Born in London in 1973, Andrew Clutterback is best known by his stage name; Andrew Lincoln. He’s a well-respected theatre, film and television actor, who last played Ebenezer Scrooge in A Christmas Carol.
Growing up in Hull and Bath, Lincoln expressed a keen interest in the performing arts from an early age. While at school, he starred in amateur productions including Oliver, then later joined the National Youth Theatre. He went on to graduate from the Royal Academy of Dramatic Art, taking Andrew Lincoln as his stage name.
Lincoln made his stage debut in 1998, starring in Simon Bent’s Sugar Sugar at the Bush Theatre. A year later, he played Danny in Hushabye Mountain at the Hampstead Theatre, before a National Theatre and West End debut in Blue/Orange. In a review for LondonTheatre.co.uk, Darren Dalglish praised Lincoln as "pulsating as the young and eager Bruce...so intense was his performance his shirt was soaked at the end of the play.”
In 2002, Lincoln returned to the National to star in Free, followed in later years by The Late Henry Moss and Parlour Song, both at the Almeida Theatre. After a decade of work across London’s theatres, Lincoln then starred in what would be his breakout television role, Rick Grimes in The Walking Dead. Away from the theatre, Lincoln's notable television and film credits include Teachers, Love Actually and Afterlife.
