Pain­ful Exit

CBS Soaps In Depth - - The Young & The Restless -

THE YOUNG & THE REST­LESS’ Joshua Mor­row (Nick) has been a su­per­fan of THE WALK­ING DEAD and its main char­ac­ter, Rick, since the show’s de­but. So like ev­ery­one else, he was bummed when Rick’s por­trayer, An­drew Lin­coln, an­nounced he’d be leav­ing the zom­bie drama. “Rick Grimes is the great­est char­ac­ter that has ever been writ­ten, and no­body else could have played him,” in­sists Mor­row. “I watch him with such jeal­ousy! The way his char­ac­ter has gone through this un­be­liev­able jour­ney… it kills me that he’s leav­ing!” Still, Mor­row says that he un­der­stands Lin­coln’s de­ci­sion. “When you think about what it must take to play such a char­ac­ter year in and year out — it takes a toll! It’s an emo­tion­ally grind­ing char­ac­ter, with Rick be­ing the group’s leader, sav­ing ev­ery­one, fight­ing his own demons and stay­ing sane. It’s gotta be the most ex­haust­ing thing in the world for an ac­tor to do, so I get why he de­cided to leave. But as a die- hard DEAD fan, I feel the pain and won­der how the show will go on with­out him!”

“I think THE WALK­ING DEAD needs me to go in and help Daryl save the day!” sug­gests Mor­row.
