It's been 10 years since Andrew Lincoln held up “perfect” flashcards to Keira Knightley in Love Actually. It was a sweet romantic moment, even if she was married to his best friend and you'd almost think Rick Grimes would frown on that kind of thing. Since he knows a lot about it.
The Walking Dead star talked to Entertainment Weekly about the film’s 10th anniversary in a great Q&A. You should read the whole thing, but it's especially fun when Andy tries to tie the movie to his AMC show.
For example, he's asked where he thinks his character, Mark, might be today. "Oh, Mark, I think moved over to America, became a cop, and then a zombie apocalypse happened." Ha!
What about the rest of the cast? "I mean, I’m trying to get as many people from Love Actually in the zombie apocalypse as I can," Andy said. "I think Hugh and Colin would be hilarious as a double act in the zombie apocalypse."
Hugh Grant and Colin Firth on TWD?! Heaven. There's your spin-off, AMC. Boom.
Who would survive the zombie apocalypse? "Strangely, I think Hugh would do rather well," Andy said. "Yeah, I don’t know." Hugh would probably charm the walkers, or maybe fumble with a gun and end up shooting a whole town like The Governor.
Andy said he's still in touch with a lot of his Love Actually cast members. "I see and speak to Bill Nighy, he’s a dear, dear friend. And Chiwetel Ejiofor. But we met before in a play that Richard Curtis saw, and I’m convinced that probably helped me get the role, him seeing that. Colin Firth I saw in Georgia last year, we went for dinner."
If Colin is already used to being in Georgia, the Walking Dead producers should nail that down. Invite him back and don't let him leave this time — tie him up in the interrogation room like Glenn or Andrea until he agrees to be part of the show!
