The Walking Dead star Katelyn Nacon wants to take over Carl’s comic storylines
The Walking Dead star Katelyn Nacon has told fans she would love to take over the deceased Carl’s storylines from the comics.
The 18-year-old plays Enid in the show, a young apocalypse survivor and a former romance of Carl’s. Chandler Riggs, who plays Carl, left the show unexpectedly in season eight – leaving Walking Dead fans reeling from the surprise loss. Carl is still alive and kicking in the comics.
Speaking at a panel at London’s Walker Stalker Convention, Nacon was asked whether she would be interested in Enid taking over some of Carl’s comic storylines.
“I would love for that to happen. I mean I think it would be such a cool idea to see his storylines still be taken over by someone young, someone still that age.
“One of the things that make the storyline very strong is that they’re taking on all this leadership and this struggle and they’re still so young.
“I think that has a really big impact and also I think it would be really cool to see the perspective change and see Enid as a young female lead, which you don’t see a lot.”
However, Nacon isn’t hopeful that the change of perspective is likely to happen, adding: “I think it would be really cool, but I don’t think it’s going to happen.”
Tom Payne, who plays Jesus on the series and was on the same panel, quipped: “I can totally see Enid taking over, if she doesn’t die this year.”
