Watch ‘Walking Dead’ star Chandler Riggs make a surprise appearance at EDM gig

The actor, who plays Carl, apparently loves the genre

The Walking Dead actor Chandler Riggs made a surprise appearance at a recent EDM gig in Atlanta.

The young actor, who has played Carl Grimes on the show since it began in 2010, was in attendance at a recent show by EDM artist Slushii in the Georgia city – which much of the AMC show is filmed.

In a video posted after the gig by Slushii, the colourful producer introduces Riggs – who is decked out in a Slushii top – to the stage before launching into a short track. Riggs is shown hyping the crowd up and “dropping the bass”, before exiting the stage after just a minute.

Watch the clip below.

The show that continues to give Riggs his breakout role enjoyed an up-and-down opening half to its seventh season this year, with The Walking Dead‘s viewing figures both hitting the highs – the brutal opening episode drew 17.1 million viewers, the second-highest in the show’s six-year history – and lows since opening back in October.

Despite the backlash, the show appeared to win many fans over with the intriguing final episode of the first half of season seven last week. Riggs and his fellow castmembers will also be back – their characters’ fates pending – for an eighth season of The Walking Dead, which will premiere in late 2017 and kick off with the show’s 100th episode.
