10 Things You Didn't Know About Andrew Lincoln

8. He Got Into Acting For The Girls

During secondary school, Lincoln regularly played Rugby, but he eventually quit the sport, and he was encouraged to start acting. He agreed to the switch in the hope of attracting attention from girls, with his very first role coming at the age of 14 when he was chosen to play The Artful Dodger in the school production of Oliver! This eventually led to Lincoln's first minor appearance on television during an episode of Drop The Dead Donkey in 1994.
