Andrew Lincoln Performs a Song for a Departing WALKING DEAD Cast Member

Warning: There are major Walking Dead spoilers ahead if you’re not up-to-date on the show! 

From the very beginning, AMC’s adaptation of The Walking Dead hasn’t been afraid to veer from the comic that inspired it. And with the upcoming mid-season premiere, the show will make its biggest departure from the source material as Chandler Riggs‘ Carl Grimes faces his demise after receiving a zombie bite. The remaining episodes of season eight were filmed months ago, but it’s only recently that Riggs’ co-stars have been allowed to share their feelings about his departure–including Riggs’ on-screen father, Rick Grimes, played by Andrew Lincoln.

Via Entertainment Weekly, Lincoln posted his goodbye video for Riggs, and he joked the only plus about the situation is that Rick Grimes won’t have to yell “Carl!” anymore. However, Lincoln quickly added “the minuses far outweigh the plusses.” Then, in a very un-Rick like moment, Lincoln sang a very amusing song that sounds like a reworked version of Camila Cabello’s “Havana.”

Somehow, we think it’s inevitable Lincoln’s heartfelt and funny song will get covers by fans of the show. As much as we’d love to see a metal take on this tune, it would be even more fun if Lincoln could be convinced to perform a studio version before starring in the accompanying music video in full costume with Riggs and other cast members from the show. Admittedly, that’s very unlikely to happen, but we can hope.

The Walking Dead will resume Sunday, February 25.
