Carl Grimes (Chandler Riggs) is the young son of Lori (Sarah Wayne Callies) and Sheriff's Deputy Rick Grimes (Andrew Lincoln). After fleeing Atlanta with his mother and Shane Walsh (Jon Bernthal), his father's partner, Carl has to come to terms with the likelihood of never again seeing the father he idolizes. Carl is a very smart, sensitive boy who forms a bond with Shane at the relatively safe survivor's compound they all share. The arrival of his father, Rick, brings Carl joy and a sense of security. Although they try their best, it's impossible for Carl's parents to shield him completely from all the violence and horror that's part of their new reality.
