Glenn Rhee’s death was certainly one of the most brutal deaths on the series, The Walking Dead. Now, actor Steven Yeun has come out at the Walker Stalker Con to discuss his thoughts on the many deaths of Glenn Rhee.

Not only was Glenn brutally killed by Negan, but there was also a moment on the show where Glenn hid under a dumpster off camera, as fans watched what they thought was Glenn being ripped to shreds by walkers.

Yeun opened up about the fake dumpster death at the Nashville panel.

“You know what, man, that I think is a testament of where we are in technology and media and Internet that I think wasn’t tested truly until that moment,” he said. “I think the intentions were not to deceive but the intentions were to make a fun plot.”

“What happens is the Internet, spoiler sites, people camping out, which are all good indicators of the success of your show so I don’t want to admonish that, but at the same time you look at it and you’re like, ‘I don’t think any show had to deal with it until that point.”

“Now, you look at how shows deal with stuff moving forward and its’ completely changed because people freaked out about it. It sucks that it had to be a case study but it was a case study.”
