Lincoln's former Home and Away co-stars took to the comments section of his Instagram post to offer their support.
"You killed it brother," Tai Hara wrote, while Luke Mitchell added: "Onwards & upwards big fella! Great work!"
Earlier this year, Lincoln told TV WEEK how grateful he was to have scored the role, especially in the cutthroat world of Hollywood.
"It's such an unpredictable industry. I have a lot of extremely talented friends who deserve the opportunity just as much, but haven't been given the chance yet, so I'm thankful for this moment," he said at the time.

Lincoln worked closely with Eva Longoria on the series, who produced the show and had a guest role as Beatriz Mendoza.
"She's one of the most down-to-earth people you'll ever meet," Lincoln previously told OK!
"She's generous, she's engaged and she wants to help – and [her 14-month-old son] Santi became our little producer. I've become an unofficial babysitter!"
