Andrew Lincoln, star of AMC’s The Walking Dead, graces the October cover of Men’s Health (on newsstands today) and opens up about his transition from making a respectable living as an actor in England to slaying zombies on America’s most watched cable drama series for adults. On his approach to exercise, Lincoln says: “I don’t need a trainer. I’ve got a zombie apocalypse to keep me fit.”



Andrew on his career before The Walking Dead…


“I’d played sort of jokey, Jack the Lad kinds of roles. Romantic roles. Period dramas.”



Andrew on why he doesn’t need a trainer thanks to his work on The Walking Dead… 


“Of course I want to be in good shape and be fit, but I want to have stamina. It’s not an exercise in vanity. It’s about being able to do stuff. On Friday I did an 18-hour day, including travel. I was up at quarter to six in the morning and got home at half past midnight. The day before we’d been outdoors all day. It was 90 to 95, and the humidity was up. So I don’t need a trainer. I’ve got a zombie apocalypse to keep me fit.”



Andrew on six-packs… 


“The whole vanity aspect of building up different muscles—I have no interest. I’m probably talking to the wrong magazine, but this six-pack phenomenon in acting, I just don’t subscribe to it.”



Andrew on his exercise regime…


“Eat less. Exercise more.”
