Gamers know Steven Ogg for his unforgettable voice acting as Trevor Phillips in Grand Theft Auto V, but if video games aren't your thing, you likely recognize the Canadian actor from The Walking Dead, or maybe for playing Pike in the new TNT series Snowpiercer that aired earlier this summer — an adaptation of Bong Joon Ho's 2013 film of the same name.
As a guest on Inverse Social Hour, Ogg shared what it was like working with the Snowpiercer cast — “we're all in an amazing group text” — and what he knows about Season 2, Grand Theft Auto VI, and more.
“I’m super excited about people seeing it because I think it just gets bigger and better — and it gets more fun,” he tells Inverse about Snowpiercer Season 2.
