It seems that Rick Grimes spending time at the junkyard with Jadis and the Heapsters has really rubbed off on actor Andrew Lincoln, as the star revealed he actually wanted to bare all for his 'Time for After' fight scene. This week's bonkers episode of The Walking Dead featured an entire scene where Rick was forced to do battle with the armoured junkyard zombie while he was clad only in his boxer shorts.
With Rick's journey to Jadis ' trash heap being met with imprisonment in the trash heap, the leader of Alexandria was stripped of nearly all of his clothing and forced to fight walkers wearing only underwear.
If Lincoln would have had it his way, Jadis would have been a happy camper, finally seeing Rick in the nude as he swung a walker around and fought his way out.

Lincoln opened up about the matter in a behind-the-scenes video. It was a really fun fight," Lincoln said.
But they wouldn't let me be naked! I said, 'One take,' I said, 'Please, with just the cowboy boots. Let's do that.
Should Rick have dropped drawers, Lincoln had a hilarious conclusion for the scene. Jadis would have quite enjoyed a naked Rick, as well.
The character has, on occasions, requested to "lay" with Rick and was eager to sculpt him in the nude. And he's pretty hot, too! Rick decided to head back to the trash heap on a certainly dangerous solo adventure which even McIntosh admits is a questionable decision, citing Rick have "no reason" to trust Jadis.
Executive producer Gale Anne Hurd weighed in on the choice, as well. Start the Conversation.
