Early Life

Andrew Lincoln is actually a stage name, and the actor's real name is Andrew James Clutterbuck. He was born on September 14th of 1973 in London, England. When he was still very young, Clutterbuck's family moved to Hull and then to Bath, where he later attended secondary school.

After graduating, Lincoln booked the role of "Egg" on the British drama This Life in 1995. This recurring role proved to be a major step forward for the young actor, and it led to further opportunities in British television.

What followed was a string of prominent roles in major series such as The Woman in White, The Canterbury Tales, and Wuthering Heights. Lincoln earned widespread praise for his role in the critically acclaimed sitcom Teachers. Although Lincoln earned his stripes in comedic roles, he showed his versatility and range by booking roles in dramatic series such as Afterlife and Strike Back.

In the early 2000s, Andrew Lincoln began to appear in a range of films.
