An Atlanta native, Chandler Riggs began acting at age four. Riggs’ early work included local stage productions of The Wizard of Oz and Oklahoma at Atlanta’s Fox Theatre. When he was nine years old, he landed his first two film roles simultaneously: The Wronged Man with Julia Ormond and Get Low with Robert Duvall.
Most recently Riggs filmed Blumhouse Productions’ supernatural thriller Mercy, with Shirley Knight, Frances O’Connor, Joel Courtney, Mark Duplass, and Dylan McDermott; and Voltage Pictures’ Home Invasion with Bella Thorne.
Earlier this year, Riggs won Hollywood’s Young Artist Award for Best Performance in a TV Series Comedy or Drama and the Saturn Award for Best Performance by a Younger Actor in a Television Series, both for his role in The Walking Dead.
