Steven Yeun            

Actor; Best Known as Glenn Rhee on "The Walking Dead"

Steven Yeun is a Korean-born American actor, who currently stars in the role of Glenn in the AMC television series "The Walking Dead." Other than "The Walking Dead," Yeun had a cameo in the critically acclaimed American sitcom "The Big Bang Theory" as Sheldon's former roommate Sebastian in 2010, an independent film and a couple of shorts. He has also completed voice work for the Crysis video game series.

Yeun was born in South Korea and raised in Troy, MI. He received a bachelor's degree in psychology from Kalamazoo College in 2005. His interest in acting and improv came during his freshman year at Kalamazoo, when he watched the college's improv group, Monkapult. He auditioned for Monkapult, but was initially rejected before successfully joining the group during his sophomore year.

He moved to Chicago in 2005, living in the city's Lincoln Square with his brother. Shortly after graduation, he joined Stir Friday Night, a sketch comedy group composed of Asian-American members. Yeun joined The Second City in Chicago before moving to Los Angeles in October 2009.
