The Walking Dead
Yeah, tell me about it... he's really hot. His name is Andrew Lincoln and he plays Rick Grimes, the small group of survivor's leader, in The Walking Dead. At the start of the show, Rick was a small town sherriff who woke up from a coma to find that the city has been over run by walkers.
Basically, the show is a survivalist story at its core and an edge-of-your-seat drama. It follows the survivor's of an apocalyptic holocaust who are searching for a safe haven in an unfamiliar world of zombies...a.k.a walkers. Oh yeah, for those of you who may have chuckled when I mentioned that The Walking Dead was my favorite show, check out the article that I copied and pasted from Yahoo's, 'Cable TV's winners and losers.'
WINNER: "The Walking Dead" (AMC)
You know who's really terrified of zombies? Network executives. Like Michonne slicing up a walker, AMC's post-apocalyptic thrill ride has decapitated the competition this year, averaging a massive 11.4 million viewers, including a whopping 7.3 million in the key adults-under-50 demographic. That last number tops any other series on TV, broadcast or cable -- more than "The Big Bang Theory," "Modern Family," or "American Idol." That's a big deal; the fact that a cable series can outdraw even the most popular network fare represents a seismic shift in the TV landscape. See why other networks are scared now?
This is Danai Gurira and she plays Michonne. Michonne is the current lead female in the series and is the sword wielding heroine who slices and dices walkers with her trusty Samurai weapon.
Daryl's character is portrayed by Norman Reedus. Daryl is a hunter and expert tracker. He became Rick's right-hand man when Shane became more and more unhinged. His signature weapon is a crossbow.
