Fans were literally hooked on the “Rick Grimes” character in Walking Dead as he led people to fight against zombies. From an unknown person to a pop culture legend, the series took Andrew Lincoln to heights he could never have imagined. In 2018, he chose to quit the show that made him a star. His family was the main reason he chose to leave the pop culture world when he left the Walking Dead. When interviewed by EW, he stated that he wanted to be active in his children’s lives. The show cut him short of time for his wife and kids, and he thought it was the right decision. While many people did not like to see him quit, another side wanted to know his personal life. This made them wonder about his personal life, especially his wife, Gael Anderson. She is the daughter of Ian Anderson, a singer of Jethro Tull. How did the couple end up in a relationship that would last nearly two decades?
Speaking to Scotsman, the Walking Dead star said he was madly in love with his wife from first sight. The Daily Entertainment News states that their first meeting was with the British TV series Teachers. Gale was the director’s personal assistant, while Lincoln played the lead. He was immediately attracted by her beautiful silhouette and her charming green eyes.
“I just saw her silhouette – she had a crazy mullet with spiky hair – she looked like Sonic the Hedgehog. I saw this crazy looking girl with these beautiful green eyes, and I just went, ‘Who the hell is that?’ I was enchanted.” She was serving tea to other team members when the actor saw it and started communicating, which eventually led to a relationship.It took the two less time to fall in love and they’ve been together for over a decade.Andrew Lincoln and Gael Anderson married in June 2006. They dated for four years before getting married.
Andrew and Gale didn’t wait to start a family. Their first child, Matilda Clutterbuck, was born in 2007, about nine months after the marriage. Three years later, the couple had a son, whom they named Arthur Clutterbuck. Their children are hidden from the media for obvious reasons. Even though the children are always spotted with their parents during trips, not much is known. The couple does not want to expose their children to public scrutiny. The family is nothing short of sweet. The couple is devoted to their family.
They consider family a treasure. Although Lincoln is famous, he has managed to hide his personal life. They have raised their children outside of the public scrutiny as they prefer a normal childhood. Also in interviews, the star avoids questions about his family. He’s always vocal about how he prioritizes family, and in an interview he once said, “It’s family first. It makes me more efficient. Work is work time, then I come home — and there’s nothing more grounding. fooled and drunk and eaten in LA, and you come home and have to change the diaper.’
Gael’s brief stint in showbiz
Gael has also worked in the entertainment industry. Growing up with a lucrative background, it made sense for her to pursue a career in the entertainment world. Unlike her husband, her career never took off. She was mainly involved in cameos and backup roles. In the 1970s, she appeared in Gone up North for a While and Landfall, where she acted as Elizabeth. Although she wasn’t the main character, she appeared for more minutes than her previous stint. She worked on a few projects like Teacher, but not in an active capacity. She tried other aspects of entertainment as well, but it seems she was supposed to marry Lincoln and stay home together to take care of their family.
