    He needs to go to college and get a real job because acting is not his thing. He seems like a sweet and kind young man but he needs to step it up a lot.

    What is wrong with his acting? He's not Lawrence Olivier, but he's played Carl convincingly enough to me. I mean, it's hard for me to judge sometimes because I have no clue how old he's supposed to be. 12? 17? I didn't read the comics so I don't know how Chandler's portrayal matches comic Carl.

    I'm not nearly as bothered by his acting as I am by his hair.

    To be fair he's supposed to be an overly angsty teenager which is cringeworthy in the real world. So I don't know if he's just a bad actor or if it's just the part.'

    I second this! And people think Daryl's hair is bad! (Yes, it is stupid. Still, Carl looks like a fucking jackass).

    He's not the best at convincing me he's really angry. I think people have to go through something tough to get a look that shows true anger. No fault of CR's, and not knowing his personal life at all, but I think he's just too young and inexperienced to be convincingly pissed off. Other than that though I really don't have a huge problem with his acting. I think he can be pretty good when given the right material to work with.

    What bothers me the most is that he doesn't look AT ALL like a 14 year old. Not even close.

    But yeah, his acting is pretty bad. The only scene I saw of him this season was him hugging Maggie and even that looked bad. Clearly got in the biz because of mom and dad. I don't expect him to be in movies/tv shows for long. At least not big productions.

    This past episode it really showed in the scene where he was threatening the Saviors with the gun. TBH Chandler has never really impressed me with his acting skills, he's just been serviceable, but as he gets older he is gonna have to be more convincing in his emotions or it'll fall flat like in this episode.

    If Rick dies a few seasons before the show ends and Carl is the main lead character I will probably not watch. I just can't get into the story when the acting is so bad. And CS bless his heart he is pretty bad.
