The Walking Dead’s Andrew Lincoln (Rick Grimes) is currently packing heat on the October 2014 cover of Men’s Fitness. Life is good.
But, when you think about it, it is kind of weird that the guy holding signs for Keira Knightley in Love, Actually is now a 40-year-old action hero. Andy isn’t just a badass leading man on AMC’s No. 1 ratings darling, though — he’s also become a heartthrob and a sex symbol. Part of that has to be tied to the physical transformation of his character, Rick Grimes, from the pale, clean-shaven sheriff’s deputy of Season 1 to the bearded man who bites people’s necks off in late Season 4/early Season 5.
Andy told Men’s Fitness he hired a trainer for the first time last season, to help him bulk up. He said he’s usually more of a runner than a gym guy, but his trainer made him stop the distance running and add free weights to build some mass. Andy also said he (shudder) cut carbs and sugar out of his diet, even though it wasn’t easy or fun. “Why would you want to do that to yourself, man?” he asked. Good question.
Watch the video below to see Andy behind-the-scenes of his Men’s Fitness shoot; he talks about going on a diet for the first time in his life, and you can see cool black-and-white shots of the British actor a horse, making him look like a retro Western star. Nice.
AMC has released a new featurette that explores the impressive zombie stuntwork being utilized for the upcoming fifth season of their hit series, “The Walking Dead.” Check it out in the player below!
Based on the comic created by Robert Kirkman, Tony Moore, and Charlie Adlard, Season Five of “The Walking Dead” premieres Sunday, October 12 at 9:00pm ET/PT. It stars Andrew Lincoln, Norman Reedus, Steven Yeun, Lauren Cohan, Chad Coleman, Chandler Riggs, Melissa McBride, Emily Kinney, Danai Gurira and Sonequa Martin-Green.
The Walking Dead actors Glenn Rhee (Steven Yeun) and Maggie Greene (Lauren Cohan) may agree their respective characters function better when they’re trapped at Terminus together as opposed to freely roaming the world apart, but a new set of photos from Season 5 might alter their opinions. Things aren’t looking so great for neither Glenn nor Maggie!
In one snapshot from the upcoming season, Maggie is in a warehouse of some kind with walkers right behind her. She’s heavily armed and her new locale is easily an upgrade from a dark train car, but by no means is she free and clear. One walker is looking for a bite and even though we know Maggie could take him, something about the look on her face tells us there’s more going on here than meets the eye.
The green and white walls in the background seem to indicate that we’re still at Terminus (creepy candle room, anyone?) and Maggie is glaring at something that has piqued her interest outside the frame. Did she discover the truth about whether or not the Termites are cannibals? Is Gareth putting her through some kind of test? Is that gaze directed at her boo, Glenn?
Speaking of Glenn, another photo from Season 5 shows him in a similarly tough situation. Like Maggie, Glenn is facing down several walkers. While one stands directly in front of Glenn, the former pizza delivery dude seems more interested in the undead fella to the left. He looks a bit worried (though we bet he’s glad he’s got that gun in his hands) but more than anything he seems curious about something offscreen.
What’s going on with these two lovebirds? Should we be concerned? Feel free to share your thoughts and theories below!
The Walking Dead Season 5 premieres on October 12 at 9 p.m. ET on AMC.

Glenn and Maggie spent a good chunk of last season of The Walking Dead trying to find each other. They finally did! Annnnnnnd then they promptly got captured at Terminus. Well, that kind of sucks.
So that begs the question: Are Glenn and Maggie better off being safe but separate, or trapped together? And when a question begs, we ask it, so ask it we did of the actors who play Glenn and Maggie — Steven Yeun and Lauren Cohan. Which scenario would Glenn and Maggie prefer? “That a good question,” said Cohan while taking a break from her EW Walking Dead cover shoot. “Are they better together but in peril, or separately but free? I think that really Maggie and Glenn are better together. Even if it’s the most perilous situation you know that they’ll find a way out of it — or at least you hope that they’ll find a way out of it. They spent a lot of time trying to find each last year — it’s like, no more!”
Really, even though the people at Terminus may be cannibals and Glenn and Maggie may be their next meal? Yep, agrees Yeun. “I think the preference is to be together regardless of whether the circumstances are difficult,” he told us at the EW photo shoot. “At the least, you’re with the person that matters the most to you in this world. At this point, what your world has become — that is your world. Your world is who your with. The world is the people that you love. If it’s not with them, the what’s the point of continuing on?”
We’ll see if that philosophy works out for the couple when the show returns on Oct. 12. In the meantime, click on the video player below to see Cohan and Yeun share their thoughts on Maggie and Glenn and get a behind-the-scenes peek at their killer EW photo shoot.
