Featured on this past week’s cover of Entertainment Weekly, Steven Yeun opens up about THE WALKING DEAD.
Be warned: The following post contains spoilers!
In an interview with Entertainment Weekly, Steven Yeun spoke extensively about leaving the beloved character of Glenn behind, what it was like to use such graphic violence, and how he feels about Glenn’s exit.
It was a sense of relief that a chapter was closing, a sense of accomplishment in looking back and seeing all the things that I got to be a part of, a sense of sadness in knowing that I don’t get to work with these people in the same capacity again, and a sense of confusion because I didn’t know how to place a lot of it because I had to keep it secret.
He also speaks about handling his emotions in regards to leaving the show.
This is something that will hit me maybe a couple of months from now. Or maybe it’ll hit me next year. Maybe it’ll be when I’m 45 and all of a sudden I’m just crying in my kitchen and I can’t explain why. At that point, it was beautiful in that it was so easy for me to get emotional. Personally, for me, I’m not one to cry all the time. I don’t cry much in real life. And when you do not cry in real life, the moments that you do cry are very, very fulfilling and cathartic. You realize, maybe I should cry more in general.
