‘The Walking Dead’ Cast Doesn’t Even Know Who Negan Killed
The Walking Dead cast, they’re just like us!
If you’re frustrated about the devastating cliffhanger that wrapped up TWD Season 6, rest assured you’re not alone.
As we theorized, Negan made his unforgettable debut in the 90-minute finale and killed one of our beloved survivors, but the identity of his victim is unknown. While cliffhangers are nothing new for TWD viewers, it turns out the cast has no idea who Negan killed either!

Actor Chandler Riggs, who plays Carl Grimes on the AMC drama, took to Twitter once Episode 16 was over to commiserate with fans and let them know he’s been clueless for six months. He shared the following message:
if it makes you feel any better i still don't know who got killed and it's been like 6 months since i read the script #whoisit— chandler riggs (@chandlerriggs) April 4, 2016
In a similar fashion, impersonator extrordinaire Ross Marquand — AKA Aaron — revealed in an interview with Comicbook.com that he’s completely in the dark with regards to who Negan killed in the finale.
“I’ve been a fan of the show since the beginning, and for me, I’m speculating about where it’s going to go and where it’s headed,” he said.

Chandler and Ross may not know what’s up, but we have a hard time believing no one in the cast is aware of who Negan killed. For starters, we’re hoping the victim at least has a heads up he or she is now out of a job.
Furthermore, it seems like some of the leading cast members like Andrew Lincoln and Lauren Cohan are also in the know, as both had visceral reactions to the finale script. New evidence suggests that just like in the comics, Glenn Rhee was Negan’s first kill.
Some fans have said The Powers That Be are waiting to gauge fan reaction to decide who to kill off, but we think showrunner Scott Gimple has had this crucial death planned out for a long time.
The Walking Dead Season 7 premieres this fall on AMC.
