As we said, many will remember Yeun as Glenn Rhee, the resourceful guy who joins up with Rick Grimes in the first season. His character fell in love with Maggie Greene, and their child was about to be born, then Negan kills Glenn in the first episode of the seventh season. This fan-favorite character may only have been in the show for six full seasons; it doesn’t mean we don’t miss him.
