The Talking Dead just taught us that 14-year-old Chandler Riggs, the kid who’s played Carl since the show’s inception in 2010, has a female stunt double named Ashley who, at 31, is 17 years his senior.
Apparently, Riggs outgrew his prior stunt double from seasons 1-3, Savana Jade Wehunt (The Governor’s daughter). In a snippet on growing up on the set, Riggs reveals that the rest of the cast often forgets that he’s a kid, and that his favorite part of filming was being able to wear Rick’s hat (“it keeps the sun out my eyes while I’m shooting”) and burning the crap out of the barn full o’ zombies in season 2.
Whoa. Is it just me or is Daryl’s stunt double is a dead ringer for Jack White?
