Chandler Riggs

In the last season of The Walking Dead and after waiting for a very long time, Carl Grimes was shot in the eye during the mid-season premiere of The Walking Dead Season 6. The famous scene was first glanced by Walking Dead fans in the original comic version of the series.

And now, fans should expect that everything will be different with Carl.

In the comics, after the incident, Carl suffered from memory loss and his personality turned to a darker shade. When asked about his character in The Walking Dead, Chandler Riggs did not hesitate to share some of his thoughts. The young actor thinks that the old Carl may really seem to be gone for good along with his left eye.

Riggs was very excited to see what would become of one-eyed Carl during last season since he thought that it was one of his best work so far in the series. In fact, he tried everything to physically showcase the changes that have been going on with Carl since he lost his one eye.

Riggs also thinks that the incident with Carl made him a better actor because in truth, he found it hard to act with just one eye. That is aside from the fact that he was forced to things very much differently.

The young actor also recalled the things that happened while filming Season 6 of The Walking Dead and some of the shocking moments that blew away the minds of the people.

LOSING THE EYE

Riggs found losing one eye as Carl in the series very cool. In fact, the actor was very excited when he learned about what would happen to his character, and people could vouch that he was looking very much forward to that iconic scene. At first, Riggs was not very sure if Carl was actually going to lose his eye since Rick never did lose his hand just like what happened in the comics.

FILMING THE SCENE

They had a bit of tough time shooting the scene. It was night and the set was splashed with blood. In addition, there was a lot of screaming and crying during that moment. However, Riggs had fun while shooting the scene where his eye was shot since he could see all the visual effects. Some blood was applied around his eye but the actual prosthetics was placed on him when he was already at the infirmary.

Though it did not bode well for his character, Riggs enjoyed very much shooting the scene because it portrayed what really happened in the comics. The only downside was Ron shooting Carl.

SHOOTING SCENES WITH JUST ONE EYE

Riggs had some tough time in shooting with just one eye. Still, he managed to get used to after a while. The hardest part for him was losing depth perception since he really couldn’t see what was happening on the other side of the room. Yet, Riggs found it helpful to see with just one eye because it had helped in internalizing his character.

On the other hand, it’s not like Carl would be seen wearing an eye patch anytime soon. Riggs thought Carl’s wound was quite large for an eye patch so he thought that bandages would do for him in the meantime.

As for the upcoming episodes, the actor promised that there are still shocking moments awaiting The Walking Dead fans and he assured that they would not be disappointed.

Riggs also shared some insights into Negan’s appearance in the show. The character was quite notorious in the comics and it seems that Negan’s character would not be much different in the series. Negan would be sure to annoy a lot of fans with no one to stop him. In addition, killing sounds like so much fun with him.

As for the shocking moments just like Glen’s near death experience, Riggs did not think that anything like would ever happen again in the series but he is sure that anything important that would be happening would surely shock the hell out of people.

American Horror Story

Roanoke The Original Story Behind Season 6

In the midst of Queen Elizabeth’s attempt to colonize the New World, a group of English men and women went to the coast of what is now the North Carolina in 1587 to form a colony. However, after three years, all the people who were part of the settlement disappeared without leaving any clue of where they went. Not only that, the houses where the people lived also disappeared without a trace, making other people believe that the settlers were already dead. The mysterious disappearance of the people became what was popular known as the mystery of Roanoke Island because it proved to be a great puzzle to historians for centuries. Moreover, most people think that the mystery would not be likely resolved any time soon. The Lost Colony included 117 people became a spooky entry in history books, leaving people with only one clue: the word “Croatoan” which was found to be engraved in wooden post in the settlement.

After 400 years, though it still remains to be a mystery, the Roanoke colony is again ringing bells as it is tackled in the latest season of the American Horror Story, starring Sarah Paulson, Cuba Gooding Jr., and other well- known actors. To recall, the Roanoke story was first mentioned in the first season of the TV series. The story goes that the settlers were slaughter, and their ghosts were rid of a Native American spell. Yet, it seemed that some of the ghosts were still left lingering.

The story of the Roanoke started when the British explorer Sir Walter Raleigh established the first settlement in 1585 but the group went back to England after one year. Then in 1587, with Raleigh’s orders, another group came to the place known today as Dare County, North Carolina. However, with the current issues between England and Spain at that time, further colonization of lands was postponed.

John White served as the governor of the new colony. When the group reached Roanoke, White communicated with the Native American tribes living in the area, which included the Crotoans. However, it seemed that there was still some tension between the groups. Due to the depleting supplies, White decided to return to England, and he left his family behind in Roanoke. He would never see them again and the rest of his colony.

Due to the ongoing war between Spain and England, White did not manage to go back to Roanoke until after three years had passed. Upon his arrival, White did not see anything but the fence surrounding what was supposed to be their village.

Though what happened with the colony remains a mystery, there are various theories surrounding it. One theory states that due to drought and lack of supplies, the people were forced to disperse and live with the nearby tribes. And since the Croatoans did not really approve the arrival of new settlers in their land, some surmise that the Roanoke settlers were killed and their bodies were disposed of. Still, there are some who think that the Roanoke people might have joined the Croatoan tribe.

Meanwhile, another theory has it that it was the Spanish who arrived and slaughtered the people of Roanoke because of the ongoing war between Spain and England. Some attribute the disappearance of the colony to weather disturbance like the hurricane though it was still a mystery why the fence was left intact but the rest of the village had disappeared.

Though the Island of Roanoke seems a bit of a paradise, its past holds a dark mystery that yet still requires solving. And now, the American Horror Story spins a new tail on the Roanoke people and the mystery of their disappearance.
