Walking Dead star 'devastated' over being killed off .
SPOILERS AHEAD! Before we get into details, if you didn't catch the mid-season finale this past weekend you may want to stop reading! But if you did, let's continue, shall we? AMC's hit show, The Walking Dead, is straying from its source material, and one of the actors on the series isn't happy about it. Turns out Chandler Riggs, who plays Rick's son, Carl Grimes, is devastated over the news that he's being killed off in the series, especially because the character is still going in the comic books the show is based on. You'll probably remember in the last episode that Carl was shown to reveal he had been bitten by a walker, a mark of certain death. Riggs later confirmed that the show's first episode back in February will be his last. And if you were shocked by the news, you're not alone. Riggs told The Hollywood Reporter, "It was devastating for me and my family because the show has been such a huge part of my life for so long. For a few days, we didn't know what to do; I just bought a house in Senoia [close to where the show films in Georgia]. That was a big deal that I wouldn't be on anymore. I decided that I wanted to not go to college for at least a year and move to L.A. and focus on acting and music. It ended up being a great thing because now I get to do all kinds of other stuff that I haven't been able to do in the last eight years.
