With season three of his hit AMC show "Walking Dead" nearing its October 14th premiere date, Andrew Lincoln was selected as the cover subject for the October 2012 issue of Men's Health magazine.

The 39-year-old actor went for an all denim look with Levi's bottoms, a J Crew top and Alden boots for the Ture Lillegraven shot front page while opening up about everything from how he stays fit to his career before "The Walking Dead" in the feature article.

A few of the highlights from Andrew's interview are as follows. For more, be sure to pay a visit to Men's Health!

On the pressure to be a gym rat:
"The whole vanity aspect of building up different muscles - I have no interest. I'm probably talking to the wrong magazine, but this six-pack phenomenon in acting, I just don't subscribe to it."

On how he stays fit:
"It's about being able to do stuff. On Friday I did an 18-hour day, including travel. I was up at quarter to six in the morning and got home at half past midnight. The day before we'd been outdoors all day. It was 90 to 95, and the humidity was up. So I don't need a trainer. I've got a zombie apocalypse to keep me fit."

On his acting career before "The Walking Dead:"
"I'd played sort of jokey, Jack the Lad kinds if roles. Romantic roles. Period dramas."
