HOMETOWN: DETROIT

JOB: ACTOR

Rough Start: He may star as a zombie-fighting tough guy on AMC’s hit drama The Walking Dead, but back in high school, Yeun was best known for his softer side. “I was the guy playing guitar in the corner,” he says. “Maybe one girl was curious about me.”

In the Stars: On his first date with girlfriend Joana Pak, a photographer, “we sat at a Starbucks for about five hours looking up our horoscopes and numerology to see if we were a match,” Yeun recalls. “It was really romantic and awesome.”

Funny Guy: “Humor is key – just being able to be chill on the fly. Sometimes the funny guy finishes last, but that’s not bad. You still finish!”
