Q&A – Steven Yeun (Glenn)

twd3-glenn-325.jpgSteven Yeun, who plays Glenn on AMC’s The Walking Dead, talks with AMCtv.com about post-apocalyptic romance and his expertise at being a hostage.

Q: Season 3 Episode 7, “When the Dead Come Knocking,” is intense. Was this your first time ever being taken hostage?

A: You know, I’d been held hostage the first year, and then I was held hostage by my own people going down into the well last season! But this year, it was cool to show a little bit of mettle to Glenn, to see what he’d become.

Q: Do you feel like you’re now trained to be able to escape from a similar strapped to a chair situation, if one ever arose?

Q: Do you have a favorite walker kill from this season?
