As an incredible, talented actor, Steven Yeun ran from disgusting, flesh-eating zombies to hanging out at the countryside with a “super-pig.” Now, he’s become an executive producer for an immigrant drama called, Minari. His career boosted after his departure from The Walking Dead and there’s no stopping him from continuing his skills as a growing and eager performer. Currently, he is co-starring in a one-act play called, The Humans.

Yeun is best known for his role as Glenn Rhee in the hit horror series, The Walking Dead, from 2010 to 2016. He was a fan-favorite and considered to be the best pizza delivery boy in the entertainment business. With much sadness to his fans, Glenn Rhee saw his fate when he was struck with Negan’s bat, Lucille, during the season 7 premier episode. His death was truly devastating and something that shook the fan-base to its core.

Luckily for fans, Yeun was able to move forward and appear in multiple films. However, since that heartbreaking episode titled, “The Day Will Come When You Won’t Be,” Yeun has admitted to the Hollywood Reporter that he no longer watches AMC’s zombie infested series.

“I haven’t been watching TV. Is that bad? I’ve caught some episodes here and there, but I’ve been mostly working. I still talk to all my friends and they keep me updated. I think the friendships are more necessary to keep up with, so it’s been nice.”

Prior to this interview, Yeun became extremely vocal about his circumstances on Glenn’s death. According to Vanity Fair, Yeun stated, “I think they took away someone that I didn’t realize I had made such a connection with until they took him away. It was tough sometimes because I never felt like he got his fair due. I never felt like he got it from an outward perception. I don’t say this as a knock on anything. He always had to be part of something else to legitimize himself. He was rarely alone. And when he was alone, it took several years to convince people to be on his own.”

Some fans may completely agree…

RIP Glenn Rhee!
