How Much Money Does Rick Grimes Make? Salaries in the Walking Dead

So, lets dig into it, how much money does Rick Grimes make in the Walking Dead? In this blog post, I will look at both how much money Rick Grimes is making as a character in the walking dead, as well as the salary of the actual actor himself Andrew Lincoln. In the show, while I know there is technically no “money” anymore, there is the concept of resources. Tools, weapons, a good camp, people, political capital, food, clean water, shelter, etc. all still exist. I’ve also noticed that Rick Grimes is one of the tough people in the show who make it to the very end, him alongside Daryl and just about everyone else in his camp. He also has different levels of the dominance hierarchy that he hits in the show due to his place as a fighter in the hierarchy of competence. Let’s say that when everything initially breaks down he is on about $35,000 per year, he still has his weapons and police station. At the farm, he’s at about $50,000, there’s health insurance, medical care, the whole 9 yards. When they are on the road after this for about 8 months straight, they’re basically scavengers, fighting to stay alive and to get something to eat, this puts them basically on the equivalent of food stamps income of say $10,000 per year. Consequently, at the prison yard that they take over, they are back at say $35,000 to $40,000 per year, there’s food, water and shelter. Once they get to Alexandria, which is basically their safe haven, they all have their own houses, perfect running water, and relative safety. They are living on something like $100,000 per year, there is a doctor, health care, haircuts, a school, etc. And so, in this blog post, lets look at the incomes of Rick Grimes and Andrew Lincoln, read on or subscribe to our blog for more details and information.
