While attending the 41st Annual Saturn Awards Thursday night, we were able to snag a few minutes with Andrew Lincoln from AMC’s The Walking Dead. Lincoln, who tied with Hannibal’s Hugh Dancy for “Best Actor in a Television Series,” was making his first appearance at the awards show thanks to some words of encouragement from Scott M. Gimple and Greg Nicotero. After thanking the fans for their enthusiasm, Lincoln teased about the tension between his character Rick and Lennie James’ Morgan in the upcoming season, praised the show’s increasingly strong writing and story-crafting each year, and promised fans new experiences for both audiences and characters alike. Lincoln also drops a strange true-life tale about meeting L.A. Clippers star Glen “Big Baby” Davis recently, saying that now basketball is his next project. Whether he was kidding about that last part or not, we’re not entirely sure.
