Actor Avi Nash plays Siddiq on The Walking Dead cast. The character has had some important story arcs on the show but doesn’t get enough screentime to be as familiar as other TWD cast members.
Siddiq first appeared on the show during Season 8, at first in a mysterious encounter. His first contact with the main characters was when Carl Grimes and Rick Grimes come across him in the episode titled, “Mercy.”
Carl felt guilty about pointing a gun at him and left some cans of food out for Siddiq.
The character of Siddiq kills walkers to release their souls, lost his parents early on in the outbreak, and befriends Carl during his second episode of Season 8.
As they were journeying back to Alexandria, where Carl planned to sneak Siddiq inside, this is where Carl was bitten. That bite eventually led to the death of Carl Grimes.
