Steven Yeun is a Korean-American actor who portrays Glenn in AMC's The Walking Dead.

Involvment In The Walking Dead

Yeun auditioned for an ABC Pilot a month and a half before he auditioned for The Walking Dead. That was his first audition for a pilot. He managed to get a quote, signed a contract, and met with the execs, but he failed to get the role. 

And then, he auditioned for The Walking Dead, though it wasnt a 'drawn-out' process. He went into seeing the casting director, Sharon Bialy, and Bialy liked him. Bialy called him back, and eventually they both worked together. Then Yeun met Darabont in his office, and Darabont put him on tape with a camcorder. In front of nobody else--it was just Darabont, Denise Huth, and two casting directors, auditioning for the role of Glenn, which he gets.
