'TWD' actor accepted into Auburn University

AUBURN, AL (WTVM) - One of the stars from AMC's "The Walking Dead" might soon be moving to the Loveliest Village on the Plains.

Chandler Riggs, who portrays Carl Grimes on the show, recently shared that he had been accepted to Auburn University.

Riggs has played Carl since the show, which is based on a comic book series by writer Robert Kirkman and artist Tony Moore, premiered in October 2010.

The 17-year-old made the announcement Sunday night on Twitter.

His former co-star Jon Bernthal, who played the character Shane Walsh during the first two seasons, also congratulated Riggs on social media.

Since "The Walking Dead" is mainly filmed in Georgia, Riggs should be able to attend Auburn and still stay with the show.

Best of luck, Chandler, and War Eagle!
