You may be surprised by Chandler Riggs’s choice for his favorite character on The Walking Dead, besides his own TV alter ego, Carl Grimes.
Chandler has already said, via ask.fm, that he’s closest on the set to Andrew Lincoln (Rick Grimes), and Norman Reedus (Daryl Dixon) is the biggest jokester. But he didn’t name either of their characters as his personal favorite. Can’t say we argue with his choice, though.
Over the weekend, Chandler was asked by a fan to name his fave character, other than himself. He answered, “glenn cuz hes awesome.” Should we read into that, or just accept that it’s because Glenn Rhee (Steven Yeun) truly is awesome?
In other revelations, Chandler was asked to name his favorite TWD quote, and he picked this inspirational classic from Hershel Greene (Scott Wilson) in Season 4: "You step outside, you risk your life. You take a drink of water, you risk your life. And nowadays you breathe, and you risk your life. Every moment now, you don't have a choice. The only thing you can choose, is what you're risking it for."
Chandler also named his favorite episode of TWD as Season 4, Episode 9, aka “After,” the Carl-centric first episode after the mid-season finale. That was also the pudding episode. Chandler recently told The Buffalo News, in advance of his recent appearance at Niagara Falls Comic Con, that he never knew Carl eating 112 ounces of pudding would lead to 1.2 million tweets. “It was Carl’s trademark for the second half of the fourth season.”
Chandler also told the paper his favorite episode was Season 4, Episode 4, during which he got to “fire off a bunch of rounds on a machine gun on my birthday.” So his favorites may change, depending on the day.
What’s your favorite episode of TWD, so far? D you also have a favorite quote? You must have a favorite character.
The Walking Dead Season 5 premieres in October on AMC.
