Since waking up to find the world overrun by “walkers” at the start of the series, Rick has endured no shortage of heartbreak, including the betrayal of his best friend (Jon Bernthal), the death of his wife (Sarah Wayne Callies), and separation from his infant daughter.

Last season, he narrowly survived a violent siege by the Governor (David Morrissey) and was forced to flee with his son Carl (Chandler Riggs). In the season finale, he and his fellow survivors were trapped in an empty train car at a stronghold called Terminus, which they had hoped would be a new safe haven.

Lincoln has yet to be nominated for an Emmy for his performance, but in 2013 he earned a Best Drama Actor nomination at the Critics’ Choice TV Awards. The series has also won a pair of Emmys for Best Prosthetic Makeup, earned Best Drama nominations from the Golden Globes (2011) and Critics’ Choice (2011), and picked up a Program of the Year bid from the Television Critics Association (2013).
