“The Walking Dead’s” Andrew Lincoln gets a little fired up about his fight scenes for the show.
During an interview on NBC’s “The Tonight Show,” Norman Reedus said Lincoln, who plays Rick Grimes, has punched both him and co-star Jeffrey Dean Morgan in the face.
Before a scene with Lincoln, Jeffrey Dean Morgan called Reedus up worried he was going to get punched in the face during their fight scene. “He’s going to drink a lot of coffee, he’s going to get super excited, [and] he’s going to punch me in the face,” Reedus said Morgan told him.
Hours later, Reedus said he got a text from Morgan. “It’s Jeff with a Band-Aid on his nose with an ice pack,” Reedus said. “He punched him in the nose. Like, fractured his nose.”
Reedus said Lincoln has also hit him before on the “Walking Dead” set.
“We did this one scene and I beat the crap out of him, basically. And then he’s supposed to run and tackle me off-camera, right? Just jump into an airbag,” Reedus said. “But he jumps and he punches me in the face with double fists.”
Don’t ask Lincoln about the punches though. Reedus says he’ll deny them.
You can watch the full interview with Reedus below. He starts talking about Lincoln around 4:54.
