Andrew Lincoln on his family life.
Andrew Lincoln describes how he and Gael Anderson came together as though it was something out of a storybook. That he fell hard for her and couldn't explain why.
“I saw someone that I just fell for, it was amazing, You can’t really quantify or explain emotions. It’s part of my business, sure, but when it’s the real deal. Ours is a very ordinary love story, I suppose. We met, we spent time together, and then I proposed and we got married and had children.”- Andrew Lincoln
Andrew Lincoln about falling for his wife Gael.
Gael Anderson has only one sibling, a brother, James Duncan Anderson. James is a musician like their father. James was born in May 1977 and has played with his fathers band Jethro Tall. He switched a bit from playing music to managing his father as well as being his agent. He opened an agency called Hole Agency and represents several other artists. He typically goes by James Duncan rather than James Duncan Anderson so he can have a reputation separate from his father's legacy.
