'Walking Dead' Actor's Father Slams Showrunner for Character's Death

We're about to discuss the midseason finale of AMC's The Walking Dead. Riggs' Carl, who has been with the show since the pilot, tragically revealed in the latest episode, "How It's Gotta Be", that he had been bitten by a walker. "For a few days, we didn't know what to do; I just bought a house in Senoia [near where the show films in Georgia]". I didn't know what to say. "Everybody was reeling from it and continue to reel from it". "I had gone to school and done the show and dedicated so much time and effort into the show that it was insane that that was going to be the decision", Riggs said.

"When someone from the old guard goes, there's a part of you that goes with them", Andrew added.

At the same time his father was dropping truth bombs on Facebook, Riggs opened up about his character's exit to The Hollywood Reporter. "It was devastating for me and my family because the show has been such a huge part of my life for so long", Riggs said. But it serves a good objective in the story. "His story is definitely coming to an end".

Like Game Of Thrones, The Walking Dead prides itself on never pulling punches with its shocks and surprising fans with its sudden dramatic deaths. "I'm just focused on the fact that Carl right now is alive and he has some business to attend to".

Many fans have expressed their anger at the impending loss of Carl, who many felt was destined to see a happier future. He also offered this for the show's loyal fans: "Thank you to all the fans for giving me a job for eight years and for giving me this wonderful experience and blessing me with this career and this chance at having so much opportunity".

In an interview with Entertainment Weekly, Chandler Riggs said he was told in June during rehearsals for the sixth episode of the season that his character's fate would be revealed in the midseason finale and he would die in the ninth episode, which airs in February.
