That settles it: We need more Glenn Rhee (Steven Yeun) and Carol Peletier (Melissa McBride) scenes in The Walking Dead Season 5. Not romantic, obviously, since Glenn is with Maggie Greene (Lauren Cohan) and Carol is with her own fine self at present, but just as friends. Two great actors and characters interacting, since they rarely get to shine together.
Anyway, we’re feeling all kinds of fuzzy about TWD stars Steven and Melissa because, Thursday night, Steven was at the New York premiere of his new movie I Origins, and Celebuzz asked the film’s cast and director to name who has Hollywood’s most beautiful eyes.
Two of the men named Astrid Berges-Frisbey, one of the stars of I Origins. But not Steven. Instead, he named a TWD co-star: "Melissa McBride. Check her eyes out. Study it."
Well, swoon city!
It’s not exactly a surprise to hear that Melissa’s eyes are beautiful — you can see that just through the screen — but it’s also far from news to know these two are good friends.
Back in late May, Melissa tweeted a link to The Hollywood Reporter's story on Steven adapting Aquariums of Pyongyang, writing, “So proud of my friend @steveyeun ... looking forward to this happening!” Steven retweeted producer Gale Anne Hurd's link to a story on the campaign to get Melissa an Emmy (it should’ve worked, dangit) and he also retweeted Melissa's photo of her Saturn Award.
#TWDFamily love in action! It’s beautiful to see. These two aren’t the only cast members to share the love, just the most recent pair to give us the “awwww” glow. For the record, though, Steven's not hard to look at either.
The Walking Dead Season 5 premieres in October on AMC.
