The cat is out of the bag: Glenn and Abraham were killed off in The Walking Dead Season 7 premiere (watch here!). This week sees Steven Yeun grace the latest cover of Entertainment Weekly dubbed "Dead Glenn Talking" that sees the actor reflect on Glenn's death. 

“I don’t know if I’ve fully processed it yet,” Yeun said. “This is something that will hit me maybe a couple of months from now. Or maybe it’ll hit me next year. Maybe it’ll be when I’m 45 and all of a sudden I’m just crying in my kitchen and I can’t explain why. At that point, it was beautiful in that it was so easy for me to get emotional. Personally, for me, I’m not one to cry all the time. I don’t cry much in real life. And when you do not cry in real life, the moments that you do cry are very, very fulfilling and cathartic. You realize, maybe I should cry more in general.

“It was a really confusing time for me personally,” Yeun said of leaving The Walking Dead. “It was a sense of relief that a chapter was closing, a sense of accomplishment in looking back and seeing all the things that I got to be a part of, a sense of sadness in knowing that I don’t get to work with these people in the same capacity again, and a sense of confusion because I didn’t know how to place a lot of it because I had to keep it secret.”

EW goes on sale Friday; The Walking Dead airs Sundays at 9pm ET on AMC. You can also watch Steven Yeun and Michael Cudlitz behind-the-scenes joking around while wearing their death make-up.
