Chandler Riggs Address Leaving The Walking Dead


chandler riggs leaving walking dead Chandler Riggs Address Leaving The Walking Dead

Sunday's episode of The Walking Dead gave us another side of Carl we haven't seen, and eye can tell you it was pretty nasty (see what I did there?)!

A couple of weeks ago also saw it speculated that Chandler Riggs is leaving The Walking Dead because he is going to college.

Now in a new interview, Chandler Riggs addresses whether or not he is leaving.

"You never know how it will go," the 17-year-old actor told THR. "I really do hope it works out because that would be really cool. I like to be in The Walking Dead and I like to play video games and just hang out with my friends and try to be as normal as possible so going to college would be another really cool, normal experience in my life. I want for it to work out."

As I previously put it out there, maybe Chandler Riggs could do both and his role on The Walking Dead would simply be diminished. Riggs confirms that's what he is presently trying to do with AMC.

"Yes. Theoretically, I could take one or two classes on campus and maybe an online class. My professors would have to be willing to cooperate. It wouldn't be easy but I think that could be possible," Riggs said.

When questioned, Riggs also wouldn't confirm if he had a new contract with AMC for The Walking Dead Season 8.

"The Walking Dead" stars Andrew Lincoln as Rick, Chandler Riggs as Carl, Danai Gurira as Michonne, Melissa McBride as Carol, Sonequa Martin-Green as Sasha, Lauren Cohan as Maggie, Steven Yeun as Glenn, Norman Reedus as Daryl, Lennie James as Morgan, Seth Gilliam as Father Gabriel, Michael Cudlitz as Abraham, Josh McDermitt as Eugene, Alanna Masterson as Tara, Christian Serratos as Rosita, Tovah Feldshuh as Deanna, Ross Marquand as Aaron, Alexandra Breckenridge as Jesse, and Austin Nichols as Spencer.
