I want for it to work out.”
Riggs discussed how he could possibly balance the demands of college with the filming schedule of The Walking Dead.
“Theoretically, I could take one or two classes on campus and maybe an online class. My professors would have to be willing to cooperate. It wouldn’t be easy but I think that could be possible.”
