In THE WALKING DEAD, a comic series created and written by Robert Kirkman (INVINCIBLE, THE ASTOUNDING WOLF-MAN) with art by Charlie Adlard, an epidemic of apocalyptic proportions has swept the globe, causing the dead to rise and feed on the living. Rick Grimes finds himself one of the few survivors in this terrifying future. Separated from his family, he must now sort through all the death and confusion to try and find his wife and son.
The AMC TV series based on THE WALKING DEAD comic book debuts October 31, 2010. Yeun plays fan-favorite Glenn, an adaptable and clever young man who has a talent for scavenging supplies from even the most zombie-infested areas.
Born in Seoul, South Korea, and raised in the city of Troy, Michigan, Yeun began his foray into acting while studying psychology at Kalamazoo College in Kalamazoo, Michigan. After seeing a performance of the school’s improv group, he decided to switch his focus to acting. Following graduation, Yeun moved to Chicago to study improvisational theatre, eventually having the opportunity to work in one of the touring companies of famed comedy theatre and improvisational school The Second City. After accomplishing his goals in Chicago, he moved to Los Angeles, where he currently resides. Prior to THE WALKING DEAD, Yeun was most recently seen in a co-starring role on an episode of the popular television series The Big Bang Theory.
