Lincoln, born and raised in Indio, CA, grew up with a strong love for performing at an early age in front of his brothers and parents. They supported his love by encouraging him to be in his catholic school’s Christmas shows. His newfound passion continued on into Drama club at Indio High School, where he led several productions, and was awarded Best Actor in his senior year.
Lincoln was accepted into UCLA’s prestigious School of Theater, Film, & Television. As an undergraduate, he studied acting, as well as Shakespeare, On-camera technique, Movement and Dance.
After graduation he continued to work hard creatively. He wrote, directed and starred in several short films. Lincoln’s first professional booking was a Guest-star role in an episode of “The Mentalist” on CBS.
He continued to push himself as a performer, becoming a member of the Los Angeles chapter of Theater 68. He later costarred in the film “I Am Gangster”, and starred in the short film “Square Circle Love Triangle”, for which he was awarded “Best Actor” by the Santa Barbara Short Film Festival in 2013.
Lincoln chose to expand his creativity back into education, now as a graduate student with UCR, where he will graduate with a Masters of Fine Arts in Screenwriting.
In 2015, Lincoln was cast in AMC’s “Fear The Walking Dead” as Tobias, a wise-beyond-his-years high school student, who quickly became a fan favorite. The companion series to “The Walking Dead” had the highest-rated debut season for a cable TV series. The pilot in which Lincoln’s character was introduced drew in over 13 million viewers. Season 2 is set to debut in 2016, with Lincoln’s character/return left up in the air.
Lincoln has since appeared on ABC’s “Fresh Off The Boat” and CBS’s “Code Black”.
