There’s a reason the primary character in The Walking Dead has the Grimes as the surname. As it is, most of the time we see any of the show’s survivors on screen, they’re covered in filth and zombie sludge. So when they get all cleaned up and walk the red carpet, they’re rather stunning. What’s more, they’re even more unrecognizable in these pictures from their childhood. Take a look…
1. Andrew Lincoln – Sheriff Rick Grimes
At that point: Andrew Lincoln (née Andrew James Clutterbuck) belongs to London and demonstrated an enthusiasm for acting in his initial teenage. He picked his stage name after learning at the Royal Academy of Dramatic Art. Furthermore, he got his first genuine role in the episode of a U.K. sitcom. It would be around 10 years before he bagged his second-most broadly watched part to date as the lovesick, sign-holding Mark in Love, Actually.
Presently: After being Sheriff Rick Grimes for The Walking Dead, Lincoln has been a one-show horse, work-wise. However, he puts a considerable measure of efforts into his most vital role as a father in real life.
2. Norman Reedus – Daryl Dixon
At that point: Norman Reedus got his break in acting by chance. This was after moving to L.A. and working as a bike mechanic. He was discovered at a party amid a boisterous night and bagged a part in Guillermo del Toro’s Mimic. Thereafter roles began to come pouring in. Prior to TWD, he was best-known to for his part as Murphy Macmanus in The Boondock Saints.
Presently: Reedus originally auditioned for the role of Merle Dixon in the Walking Dead. However, the role had already been given to Michael Rooker. Nevertheless, the creators of the show loved him so much that they made Daryl Dixon for him. At that point, they weren’t aware that the character would turn out to be such a great hit. Reedus is also a bicycle lover and follows that passion on AMC’s Ride with Norman Reedus.
