Upset The Walking Dead fans are about to wave goodbye to Carl Grimes, Rick Grimes’ son, after he got bitten by a zombie walker on the hit series.
But while fans of the AMC show are furious about the character death, the young actor who plays him, Chandler Riggs, has worked it to his advantage.
Having officially left his character behind, the 18 year old has also left behind his Carl look – yup, the eye patch and long hair has gone.
Taking to Twitter to bring some joy to his heartbroken fans, Chandler revealed his handsome new look.
