‘The Walking Dead’ Season 3: Meet the Cast
Carl Grimes, played by Chandler Riggs
Carl is the 12-year-old son of Rick and Lori. Being told that his father was dead, he follows his mother and Shane to Atlanta before finally uniting with his father at the survivor's camp.
In Season 2, Carl is plagued by guilt when Dale dies partly as a result of his own actions. After stealing Daryl's gun, he shoots a zombified Shane in the head in order to save his father. The gunshot then lures a herd of zombies to the farm, forcing the group to relocate to a safer place.
