Chandler Riggs Reveals His Favorite 'The Walking Dead' Scene From Early Seasons

Chandler Riggs, who has played The Walking Dead's Carl Grimes since the zombie series' first season in 2010, says his favorite scene to film in the earliest seasons came in 2x13, "Beside the Dying Fire."

"[To be honest] all of the last episode of season 2 was so much fun to film," Riggs wrote on Twitter. "Coolest part was dropping the lighter to just obliterate a horde of zombies."

In season 2, Carl and parents Rick and Lori Grimes found refuge on a rural Georgian farm after escaping the city. After Rick was forced to kill former best friend and partner Shane, a herd of walkers — alerted by a gunshot fired off by Shane during his confrontation with Rick — swarmed the Greene farm.

Rick and Carl fled into a barn on the outskirts of the property, Rick leading the pack inside in an attempt to incinerate them all with a single blow. Above on the perch, Carl ignited a lighter and dropped it, setting the walkers and the barn ablaze.

The 18-year-old actor was recently at the center of speculation that one-eyed, sheriff hat-wearing Carl will be the next to die on The Walking Dead, now midway through its eighth season.
