Actor Andrew Lincoln has explained his decision to quit "The Walking Dead", saying it was time for him to "come home".
The 44-year-old has been the face of the popular series ever since it premiered on AMC in 2010. However, Lincoln is all set to hang his boots after the forthcoming ninth season.
In an interview with Entertainment Weekly, the actor said he wants to spend more time with his family, especially his children.
He said the show's Georgia-centric shooting locations make it difficult for him to see his family, which is based in England.
"I have two young children, and I live in a different country, and they become less portable as they get older," Lincoln said.
"It was that simple. It was time for me to come home," he added.
