Steven Yeun, 32, has finally had to say goodbye to his beloved fans. In a sweet new video published to AMC’s YouTube account, the actor who played Glenn Rhee for six seasons and the seventh’s premiere shared his gratitude for the viewers who have stood by not only him but The Walking Dead series for so long.
“To everyone who has watched us, to everyone who has supported us, to everyone who had faith in what we were building and creating this entire time, thank you so much. Thank you for driving us, thank you for letting us continue on, thank you for pushing us to make better stories,” Steven says right into the camera, speaking directly to the show’s longtime fans. “You gave me one of the greatest experiences of my entire life, so sincerely, to every single fan who tuned in and watched the show, thank you so much.”
In the second half of the video, we see Steven being bombarded by cast and crew members with kisses and hugs. It’s Norman Reedus who kicks off the show of affection, followed by Alanna Masterson, Seth Gilliam, and producer Denise M. Huth. Then things start to get awkward when the jokesters jump in, starting with Josh McDermitt who kisses Steve on both cheeks and then his lips. Whoops!
Kenric Green then stops in for a kiss and a hug, followed by Lennie James who kisses Steven on both cheeks before telling the camera it’s “European.” Ha! Sonequa Martin-Green comes over to kiss and hug Steven before telling him she loves him, and then Katelyn Nacon runs into his arms for a tight hug. So sweet!
For the grand finale Ross Marquand comes over and Steven immediately pretends to get uncomfortable. Ross then grabs Steven’s chin and presses a soft, wet kiss to Steven’s cheek. As if that wasn’t enough, Ross then pulls Steven in for a really tight hug and rubs his chest as the screen fades to black. We’re sure Steve will miss those hilarious moments on set!
