Imagine being Chandler Riggs for a second. Not only are you part of the most famous television series in pop-culture, but your character gets to fight zombies as his way of life. Now, that isn’t exactly the most exciting way of life, but it’s certainly something out of the ordinary. For both Chandler and Carl, living a life other than ordinary comes as second nature.
Chandler Riggs is a senior in high school and has kept up with a rigorous schedule as well as an exhausting work and work tour schedule. On top of this, he still manages to have a social life and – most importantly – he makes his parents proud. So proud, in fact, that they took out a special ad in his high school yearbook and while it may look ordinary enough, he’s got that whole ‘cover of Entertainment Weekly’ going for him that not many others can say they’ve got.
One of Chandler’s classmates posted a photo of this yearbook senior ad on Reddit and it is really sweet. They made a dedication under a collage of photos of Chandler at various stages of his life and career.
‘From the time you were four years old, we knew you were destined to do great things. You have been given a special gift and you’ve proven to us that you can balance your professional life with a rigorous school schedule. We didn’t know how you’d be able to keep up at all, but you’ve done it! We are so proud to be your parents and we thank you for sharing your crazy journey with us. Congratulations! We love you! Mom and Dad’
Chandler’s journey certainly has been a crazy one and his parents have every reason and right to be insanely proud of him for all he’s accomplished and all he’ll continue to accomplish in the future.
We’re sending you our congratulations too, Chandler! Way to go.
‘…but I knew him’
