    Very true, what was I thinking? Simon is Negan's ride or die.

    A nice interview with Steven Ogg at Calgary Herald.

    In these spoiler-paranoid days, it goes without saying that an actor revealing Walking Dead plot points prematurely would probably suffer something much worse than a beating from a bat wrapped in barbed wired, or at least his career would. But that doesn’t stop fans from approaching Ogg at Walker Stalker Conventions — think Comic-Con, but fully dedicated to the Walking Dead — and asking him to spill the beans. So he tells them he’ll write the name of the victim on the back of the photo he is signing.

    “I say ‘I’ll write it on the back but you cannot tell anyone because I’d get fired for this. This is real serious,'” says Ogg, in an interview during a recent return home to Calgary. “They take it and say ‘OK, yeah man, definitely.’ I’ll write on the back ‘Santa Claus’ or ‘Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer.’ ”​

    Evidently he used to work as a model! And he was a volley ball player in college.

    Didn't know he had a recurring role on the new show Westworld. I will have to check it out! He also really wants to guest star on Fargo (omg please). He also enjoys taking smaller gigs with more iconic roles than long-term stints. I guess he wants to be a bit of everywhere.

    Saw this thread and decided to get educated. After five minutes of google searching, I've decided that Steven and Andy may very well already be mates.

    He refers to to his mother as mum.....

    Here he is learning how to knit....

    He has no ego whatsoever.....
    [​IMG]

    Has black t-shirts in his wardrobe....
    [​IMG]

    And from what I could tell is a gentleman and very good to his fans.....

    Simon, I hope you're in our lives for a good long time!

    According to the 6.16 commentary, Ogg apparently tried out for Negan! :ogg:

    We've yet to see what JDM does with the role, but ngl, Ogg would have probably been more sinister and threatening in that first speech than JDM. He has the aura for the role of Negan.

    I definitely think Ogg had a commanding presence as Simon, but I don't think he'd be suited for Negan or at least I wouldn't be able to judge how he'd handle that role just from playing as Simon. Negan is loud, bold, and funny. Simon has a different energy and personality all together.

    Apparently Simon was described on the commentary as being a "friendly middle manager” type.

    I saw that from his scenes. He was sweet and sinister all at once. For some reason I find people like Simon more terrifying than Negan.

    Middle managers are always more terrifying because they are usually the enforcers of the group. When the boss doesn't want to deal with it they are the ones who fuck people up badly. And I wouldn't be surprised if Simon ran the day to day operations while Negan lived it up and does a lot of the dirty work because he enjoys it. lol
