For those who are already Carl / Beth shipping consider this. Beth may only be 16 in the show but Emily Kinney who plays her is quite a bit older. No site that I saw seems to actually know her age but the following is known: she graduated COLLEGE in 2006 and in a 2010 article she talked about how she enjoys playing teenagers even though is "over eighteen." So maybe she was some sort of child prodigy who graduated college way way young but if she was a minimum of 19 in 2010 that puts her at least 21 now. Chandler Riggs who plays Carl is only 13.
