CNN got a chance to sit down with Steven Yeun to talk about Glenn and a bunch of other things!
CNN: Where is Glenn’s head at this season?
Yeun: He sees himself as, if not a leader, at least a provider and protector and someone to look to in times of trouble. You see Glenn in this moment ready to take up the charge. It’s not easy, but these are the moments he’s been preparing for. We’ll see how that plays out.
CNN: How devoted is he to Maggie now, as opposed to the rest of the group?
Yeun: I think Maggie is his strongest link. She’s the sole thing he identifies with. I think she’s the only thing that keeps him from going off on his own. I don’t think he completely trusts the group.
You saw in the last season, he questioned Rick, someone he’s always looked up to. Glenn saw that the only thing he can really trust is his own gut, and he needs to do that to protect the people he loves. Maggie is his sole connection to being in this world, even.
CNN: What new challenges come with the change of setting?
Yeun: It’s an adjustment to get used to being on stages, not outside all the time. Luckily, our writers and producers make sure we had plenty of time in the battering heat. It was a challenge at first, but it’s fun to play how the situation changes how the character behaves.
