Nothing in Hollywood is safe from nepotism - not even #TheWalkingDead. The latest episode introduced us to Henry, one of the Kingdom's younger residents. Henry is played by Macsen Lintz, the little brother of Madison Lintz, who played Sophia.

Their mother is thrilled with the news. But she shouldn't be celebrating too soon – the zombie apocalypse is not exactly a safe place for children. The Walking Dead has a reputation for killing off most of its underage characters, and potentially their actors' short careers. Could poor Henry be next? Let's take a look at some of AMC's previous young victims.

Played by Macsen's sister Madison, Sophia was Carol's daughter who went missing in Season Two. Daryl spent most of the season trying to track her, with little success. She was later found to have been hidden away in Hershel's barn the entire time, as she had become infected and turned in to a walker. She was shot by Rick, much to Carol's dismay.

Lizzie and Mika

Super adorable and just as creepy, Lizzie Samuels and her little sister Mika set the trend for weird kids who like to follow Carol around. Lizzie proved to be quite the little psychopath after she straight up murdered her younger sister, with baby Judith as her next intended victim. Lizzie believed that zombies were friends, not foes. Shocked by her dangerous delusions, Carol took Lizzie out in to the woods and shot her.

Duane

Duane was our first introduction to Morgan. He mistook Rick for a walker in the Episode 1, whacking him over the head with a shovel. His role in the show was short lived, as Rick only stayed with Duane and his father for a short time. When Rick encountered Morgan again in Season Three, it is revealed that Duane was bitten by his mother Jenny and turned. Duane's death is the reason for Morgan's deteriorating sanity.

Sam and Ron

Arguably the least-liked characters on the show, Sam and Ron were the sons of Rick's new love interest Jessie in Alexandria. Both seemed intent on sabotaging Carl, with Ron quickly becoming his arch nemesis, and Sam attempting to outdo him in the bad haircut department. Both of the little brats met their well-overdue demise at the hands of walkers, much to the celebration of fans everywhere.

Meghan and Penny

The Governor hasn't had a great run as a father, though you can't say he didn't try. Even after his daughter Penny was infected, he continued to care for his walker daughter, who he kept hidden in his apartment. Unfortunately his belief that his daughter was still in there somewhere wasn't shared by Michonne, who speared zombie Penny through the back of the head with her katana.

The Governor had another crack at fatherhood after meeting Meghan. He became somewhat of a father figure to her and her family, and for a short period of time put his dark past behind him. Despite swearing he would protect her, Meghan was attacked by walkers, and shot in the head by The Governor to prevent her from being reanimated.

Will Henry meet his demise in this season of The Walking Dead?
