Andrew Lincoln Keira Knightley

Love Actually is considered one of the most romantic films of all time and the scene where Andrew Lincoln’s character confesses his love for Keira Knightley is one of the movie’s most memorable moments. But 12 years on, Lincoln might just have said what we’ve all been secretly thinking, that his character is actually a bit of a stalker.

Andrew LincolnEven Andrew Lincoln thinks his Love Actually character was a bit of a stalker.

Speaking about his character Mark, Lincoln told The Wrap: “He is a stalker. That was my question to Richard Curtis, ‘Do you not think we’re sort of borderline stalker territory here?’ And he said, ‘No, no. Not with you playing it, darling. You’ll be alright.’”

Andrew Lincoln Seth Gilliam Ethan Embry Steven Yeun Michael Traynor

Wow. So the creators of 'The Walking Dead' really know how to break our hearts. Regular viewers of the never-ending zombie series will be used to grieving by now, but the latest death has proved to be way too much for some fans.

Andrew Lincoln in The Walking DeadRick faces ever more difficult hurdles in this season's 'The Walking Dead'

We're only three episodes into 'The Walking Dead' season six, and already one of the best characters has seemingly been killed off. While everyone was hoping that the reckless and seriously dodgy Father Gabriel (Seth Gilliam) would be the next to bite the dust, producers have taken the story completely the other way and wiped off one of the only remaining members of the original cast. We can only hope that we haven't seen the last of him.

AMC Give Us A 'Walking Dead' Season 5 Peek [Photo]


The Walking Dead Andrew Lincoln

The Walking Dead season 4 ended in high-octane fashion: Rick, Daryl, Michonne and Carl found Terminus but were soon wise to eerie feeling that surrounded it. A gun fight followed, and the subsequent dance that ensued saw the gang reunited, albeit locked up in a metal box. 

Rick Grimes Walking Dead

In the photo, it looks as though Rick might be opening said metal box with a view to following through with his end-of-season words: “They’re screwing with the wrong people.” It was a solid end to a weird season, but one can’t help but thinking the whole ‘Rick’s back’ storyline has been done before, when he recovered from the loss of his wife.

'The Walking Dead' With No Zombies...What A Great Idea!


Andrew Lincoln Frank Darabont

Certain shows rely on one very specific aspect to make them what they are. Breaking Bad needed Walt to establish a meth empire, Buffy the Vampire Slayer needed a few vampires for her to slay, Orange is the New Black sort of needs to be set in a prison (a sewing club doesn't have quite the same lure), but The Walking Dead? Nah, that should be fine with no zombies. Oh, hang on.

The Walking Dead Zombies Sure, The Walking Dead would have been just as successful if there were no zombies in it

So, it turns out that an NBC exec actually vetoed the project, well, because, he wasn’t quite sure if the show needed zombies. The Walking Dead creators Frank Darabont and Robert Kirkman explained to Jim Rash on Sundance’s The Writer’s Room: “[The Walking Dead] actually almost did almost get made at NBC. It didn’t get made when the pilot was turned in, the famous story is one of the executives said, ‘This is awesome. I really love this . Does it have to have zombies in it?’”
