Actress Brighton Sharbino starred in The Walking Dead as Lizzie Samuels when she was 11 years old. Her family hails from Flower Mound, Texas, and when she was nine, the family moved to Los Angeles as her siblings, Saxon and Sawyer Shrabino, also act. Sharbino has many notable roles to her name, and below we will feature a list of what you can see her in.
Lizzie was the daughter of Ryan Samuels (Victor McCay), who would die of multiple walker bites. This left Lizzie and her sister Mika (Kyla Kennedy) orphans. Before his death, their father asked Carol (Melissa McBride) to care for his girls, to which she agreed.
In season 2, Carol lost her daughter Sophia (Madison Lintz) to walkers and was more than happy to take care of Lizzie and Mika while also teaching them to defend themselves from the undead. When the prison fell, Carol would catch up to Tyreese (Chad L. Colman), who cared for Lizzie, Mika, and Rick’s baby daughter Judith.
They would find shelter in a house in a pecan grove where sadness and heartache once again find Carol.
