There are few franchises as wildly in style as Harry Potter. J.Ok. Rowlings’ seven novels have been learn by hundreds of thousands upon hundreds of thousands, and the movies and Broadway certain play are nonetheless alive and effectively at present. As such, it looks as if nearly each British actor of notice has had some function within the franchise, whether or not it’s the Harry Potter movies or the brand new Unbelievable Beasts ones. However there are just a few incredible Brit actors who had been unable to nab a task, and two of them occur to be main figures on AMC’s The Strolling Lifeless: Andrew Lincoln (Rick Grimes) and David Morrissey (The Governor).
Andrew Lincoln not too long ago appeared on AMC’s Talking Dead, the place he revealed how he and David Morrissey used to lament about their lack of magical films whereas on set for The Strolling Lifeless. When requested would occur if he did not land the function of Rick Grimes, he opened up saying:
I could have been a cheesemaker. You recognize, Dave Morrissey and I, we used to form of joke that we had been the one actors in British fairness that hadn’t been within the Harry Potter franchise. So perhaps I might’ve been wizarding about Hogwarts. Or hobbiting about Center Earth. And I’ve at all times fancied the concept of getting my palms on a lightsaber.
Effectively, it seems like Rick Grimes got here alongside on the excellent time for Andrew Lincoln. It is only a disgrace that he and David Morrissey did not get to be on employees at Hogwarts beforehand.
Whereas the concept of Rick Grimes and The Governor waving wands in cloaks looks as if a foolish concept, each actors are identified for his or her incredible performances on the present. As such, they most likely might have introduced some nice life to the Wizarding World of Harry Potter. However which characters might they’ve performed? Andrew Lincoln most likely might have been a terrific Sirius Black, though clearly he wasn’t going to win the function from Gary Oldman. And David Morrissey might need been excellent for an additional villainous character, like Lucius Malfoy.
Then once more, getting roles in that iconic franchise might need prevented both actor from reserving their half on The Strolling Lifeless. The AMC sequence has by no means actually forged massive family names, aside from Jeffrey Dean Morgan. And whereas Andrew Lincoln had beforehand been seen in a considerably Stalker-ish function from Love, Really, many people did not put that collectively till later in TWD‘s run.
In fact, there’s nonetheless hope that both Andrew Lincoln or David Morrissey might nonetheless present up within the Wizarding World. Unbelievable Beasts is ready to grow to be a 5 movie franchise, so there might be roles up for grabs. And if Rick had been to actually die on The Strolling Lifeless, each actors would even be obtainable for taking pictures.
