For the second time in as many weeks, well-known Hollywood talent agency Creative Artists Agency has signed a star of hit AMC drama The Walking Dead. Just a few days ago, CAA nabbed Norman Reedus (Daryl Dixon), and now the Tinseltown heavyweight will be representing Andrew Lincoln (Rick Grimes) as well, Deadline reports.
According to the site, Andrew’s new CAA representation will only really affect his work in the United States. In his native UK, Andrew will continue to be repped by Markham, Frogatt and Irwin, and attorney Geoffry Oblath.
When Norman signed with CAA last week, we speculated that this shift could mean he wants to do more movies, which may or may not affect his future on TWD, but can the same assumption be made with regards to Mr. Lincoln?
Aside from The Walking Dead, Andrew is best known to American audiences as Mark from 2003 holiday classic Love Actually, so it’s entirely possible that Andrew switched to CAA to get even more work in American films. But who can ever forget this sickeningly sweet scene?!
Even though the British actor spends most of his time in Georgia shooting TWD, the Powers That Be have maintained that Rick can be killed off at any time. After all, “No one is safe!”
Do you take this agency switch-up as a sign that Andrew could be getting ready to leave The Walking Dead, or are we reading way too much into it? Tell us your thoughts below!
The Walking Dead airs Sunday nights at 9 p.m. ET on AMC.
