Chandler Riggs Reacts To Andrew Lincoln Leaving The Walking Dead
"Surprised" is an understatement...
On the simplistic side, actor Chandler Riggs (Carl Grimes) said he was “surprised” to hear Andrew Lincoln (Rick Grimes) was leaving The Walking Dead. During a brief interview with Good Day Sacramento, Riggs spoke about the actor’s exit.
“I mean, Andy has been on the show for so long and he’s had to leave his family every single year, so I was surprised, but at the same time, it’s gonna be good for him to get back to his family and raise his kids,” Riggs said.
Andrew Lincoln has led the show for eight full years and plans to exit in Season 9 later this year. So far, Lincoln and Riggs haven’t talked about the exit, but the headliner could be leaving because of Riggs being written off the show.
