Fear The Walking Dead: Was Chandler Riggs in Not Fade Away?


During last week’s episode of Fear The Walking Dead, eagle-eyed viewers spotted something that might be one of the first “Easter eggs” of the series.

During a scene where residents of the safe zone were gathering supplies, an individual with medium length brown hair wearing a flannel was seen walking down the street.  And several people believe the the individual could be none other than The Walking Dead’s Chandler Riggs.

Riggs is known for his work on The Walking Dead as Carl Grimes, the son of protagonist Rick Grimes.  Carl has been a mainstay of the show, surviving all 5 seasons of the show to this point and looks to be a major part of the show’s sixth season this October.

Here is a picture of the scene where people say that the person resembling Riggs was present during Fear The Walking Dead’s 4th episode of season 1, titled ‘Not Fade Away’:

The folks over at MoviePilot don’t believe that this is a nod to Carl Grimes.  In fact, they aren’t even saying much about whether or not this individual resembles Chandler Riggs at all.  However, fans took to social media during the episode to talk about a possible Riggs sighting:

While the idea of Chandler Riggs appearing on Fear The Walking Dead is a fun and interesting concept, they may have just had someone dressed similarly with long brown hair in the scene.  Personally, I don’t believe that this is Chandler Riggs, but it sure was fun to think about.

What do you think?  Did Chandler Riggs make an appearance on Fear The Walking Dead?  Or did the just have a similar looking person in the episode?  Let me know what you think in the comments below.
