Andrew Lincoln AKA Rick is leaving The Walking Dead

Nobody is safe from The Walking Dead…

Us Weekly reports that actor Andrew Lincoln is leaving AMC’s hit zombie drama following next season.

The actor, 44, is only set to appear in six episodes of the ninth season. “Andrew is leaving because he’s had enough of it and wants to focus his energy on movies,” an insider close to Lincoln tells Us. Additionally, a source tells Us exclusively that Lincoln’s costar, Norman Reedus, negotiated a $20 million paycheck to stay on. (Via)

Of the seven actors to receive opening credits billing in season one, Lincoln is the only one to remain… for now.
