As much as we love The Walking Dead, there’s so much about the hit show that we don’t know, like the tons of things that go on behind the scenes. Take, for example, the use of stunt doubles. Scott Wilson (Hershel Greene) may have elected not to use a stunt double when he wrestled a walker for the breathing tube that ended up saving Glenn Rhee’s (Steven Yeun) life a few episodes back, but other cast members frequently make use of stunt doubles when filming particularly difficult scenes.

Even Chandler Riggs (Carl Grimes) has a stunt double, though this person’s identity may be a little surprising. During Talking Dead last Sunday, it was revealed that Chandler’s stunts are actually performed by a 31-year-old woman named Ashley. When we think Carl Grimes we don’t exactly think 31-year-old woman, but if Ash gets the job done then more power to her!

AMC even posted a picture of the cast’s stunt doubles during Talking Dead, and given the fact that they wear identical ensembles as the actors, the stunt doubles actually bear a striking resemblance to the respective characters they are supposed to portray. Head on over to and check it out for yourself!

Are you surprised that Chandler’s stunts are performed by a 31-year-old woman? Sound off below!

The Walking Dead Season 4 returns to AMC on February 9, 2014, at 9 p.m. ET.
