“That definitely sucked, knowing that I was going to have to say goodbye to all the cast and crew,” said Chandler Riggs to Entertainment Weekly. “The crew especially, because a lot of them have been there since day 1.”
Chandler Riggs said he will always see the cast at comic-con events and other promotional weekends, but not the crew. The crew works behind the scenes to make sure everything looks authentic, while still being safe for the actors.
“I definitely don’t regret any moment of it at all,” said the young actor.
Chandler Riggs Talks Plans
Surprisingly, Chandler Riggs sees this pending death for his character as a positive point. A lot of publications are running with the comments his father made about showrunner Scott Gimple lying to them, but Riggs seems content.
“Ultimately, in terms of my career and my life, it’s definitely going to be for the better and I’m really excited to see what’s to come,” said the man behind Carl Grimes on The Walking Dead.
Currently, he’s already landed a movie and plans on creating an album.
Young Actor Looks To Promising Future
After spending half of his life as Carl Grimes, the young actor really has a new chance to start over. Since he’s only 18 years (and everyone knows him), he’ll have an opportunity to land new television or film roles.
According to IMDB, Chandler Riggs has a role in the new film, Inherit the Viper, which also stars Josh Hartnett and Margarita Levieva. Riggs will star as one of three siblings in Appalachia who gets by as a local opioid dealer until things take a turn for the worst.
The current rumor is that Chandler Riggs may be a candidate for the next season of Stranger Things. Given the mass popularity of the two shows, this is something fans would certainly love to see.
Then again, this online rumor could only be stirring because of newcomer Dacre Montgomery’s ridiculous 80s haircut in Stranger Things Season 2. Many compared the two actors hairstyles before Riggs got a trim. Either way, we love to hear a good rumor and hope this fan theory comes to life.
Where do you think Chandler Riggs might also make a cameo?
