Steven Yeun: 'Walking Dead' Survivor!

Steven Yeun: 'Walking Dead' Survivor!

Steven Yeun works the camera for the April/May 2012 issue of Da Man magazine (with Alexander Ludwig on the cover).

Here’s what the 28-year-old Korean American actor from The Walking Dead opened up to the mag about:

On his castmates: “All of them are great. I think I hang out with Jon [Bernthal, who portrays Shane] the most because he and I play basketball a lot. He’s a great guy. But honestly, this isn’t to be all proper, but everyone on the cast is great. I think that’s what keeps us coming back to the sweltering heat for more.”

On Asian-Americans following the ‘Linsanity’ phenomenon: “It’s great. At its core, it’s just a great story. When you add the Asian-American element, it becomes something that Asian-Americans can grab onto and find pride in. Initially, I was just happy to see an Asian-American make it and do well in the NBA, but after seeing all the things that followed, such as the racially insensitive headlines or the idea that Asians are somehow alright to be made fun of, it really opened up my eyes on the fact that we are still so far behind in this country. But damn. Jeremy [Lin]. Keep killing it.”

  • noob

    Daaaaamn, Glen got hot

  • JSG

    He’s such a good actor and it’s fun watching him develop his talent and his character on Walking Dead. I hope he continues to find career success past the Walking Dead and isn’t typecast as “the Asian guy.” I would love to see him have a long career.
    Plus it doesn’t hurt that he’s incredibly good looing ;)

  • Jerry

    One of the few characters on the Walking Dead who doesn’t irritate me to no end. Glenn’s character development in season 2 was a highlight.
