Dead set to walk back in

The Sunday Telegraph (Sydney) - - INSIDER -

THE Walk­ing Dead star Steven Yeun says he would be open to his char­ac­ter Glenn re­turn­ing to the postapoc­a­lyp­tic cult tele­vi­sion se­ries.

Yeun’s char­ac­ter was re­cently killed off in a shock­ing scene af­ter sur­viv­ing six sea­sons as one of the core cast mem­bers. Glenn’s final words were “I’ll find you”, with some diehard fans spec­u­lat­ing he will re­turn to the se­ries.

“I will leave it open to what makes sense,” he said. “I wouldn’t want any­body to force any­thing but if it makes sense, then I am to­tally down.”

Yeun (be­low), 33, is in town for the Supanova fan event at The Dome, Syd­ney Olympic Park, and will to­day walk the red car­pet for the Syd­ney Film Fes­ti­val screen­ing of his acclaimed new Net­flix film Okja which was lauded at the re­cent Cannes Film Fes­ti­val.

He has got back-to-back films due for re­lease over the next year, in­clud­ing an­i­mated fea­ture The Star with Oprah Win­frey, Kristin Chenoweth and Kelly Clark­son, and thriller May­hem with Aus­tralia’s Sa­mara Weav­ing.

“I owe The Walk­ing Dead my whole start,” he said. “I was do­ing theatre in Chicago, sketch com­edy and im­prov, and then I moved to Los An­ge­les and that show opened the door to let me in to the busi­ness. Not only did it do that but it let me have seven years of re­ally hon­ing my un­der­stand­ing, my skills and grow­ing.”
