Be prepared to forget everything you thought you knew about 'Andrew Lincoln', as the actor was born with the name, Andrew James Clutterbuck back on September 14th, 1973. And who better to explain 'why did he change it?' than the man himself. Lincoln told The Washington Post: "It was my first agent who said, "Oh, come on, you've got to change that, it's ridiculous. Sounds like a hobbit." I think I sort of buckled in. "But in one sense it's brilliant because it means that along the road I have a separate identity, which is brilliant to my family and has been very good for privacy. On the other hand, I'm fiercely proud of my name and everything in my life in England is Clutterbuck," including the name on his credit card.
