Brighton Sharbino (Lizzie Samuels) is no longer a part of The Walking Dead family because her “messed up” character had to go and have an odd fascination with walkers, which ultimately led her to stab her sister Mika Samuels (Kyla Kenedy) to death.
Once Lizzie killed Mika and warned that Baby Judith would be next, her de facto guardians Carol Peletier (Melissa McBride) and Tyreese (Chad Coleman) had little choice but to eliminate her. They were faced with an impossible choice, but ultimately knew that Lizzie wasn’t suited for this post-apocalyptic world and Carol took it upon herself to tell the young girl to “look at the flowers.”
Lizzie (and by extension Brighton) may be a thing of TWD’s past, but we still like to keep tabs on the young actress, especially since she has such raw talent. According to IMdB Brighton is currently filming a movie called Good Ol’ Boy, which the site describes as a family comedy about first love.
But young Brighton has more going on in her life than new TV and film roles. It turns out she just reached a major social media milestone by getting verified on Twitter! As you social media mavens may know, getting verified on Twitter is a pretty big deal, and only happens to public figures with considerable followings.
Brighton has over 40 thousand followers, and given her recent roles on both TWD and True Detective we only expect that number to rise. Way to go, Brighton!
Are you surprised that Brighton was verified on Twitter already? Tell us what you think below!
