On November 6th, Chandler Riggs, the actor who portrays Carl on AMC’s hit show the Walking Dead, let the world know he was accepted to Auburn University. The 17-year-old, Atlanta native has been with the show since the premiere and has quite a large fan base. So of course, his fans had a lot to say about his acceptance.
