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.”
AMC’s new zombie drama The Walking Dead premiered last week and it’s already being renewed for a 13-episode second season!
Its Halloween night episode pulled in 5.3 million viewers and last night’s ep brought in 4.7 million.
“The Dead has spread!” said AMC President Charlie Collier. “No other cable series has ever attracted as many Adults 18-49 as The Walking Dead. This reaffirms viewers’ hunger for premium television on basic cable. We are so proud to be bringing back The Walking Dead again, across the globe.”
