Co-starring alongside Riggs is the celebrated Samatha Isler, famed for her performance in Molly’s Game and Captain Fantastic. Additionally, she has been featured on several television series such as Sean Saves the World and Supernatural.

It’s been a while since The Walking Dead veered off from its source material and killed of Carl in the eighth season back in 2018, just as the star was about to turn 18. However, he did appear one last time for his show’s finale episode.
