Simon is the unpredictable number two in Negan's regime. Like Negan, he's equal parts charming and terrifying – but more often the latter. He's mostly dealt with the Hilltop leading up to this conflict, but now with tensions escalating, he's exactly the kind of wartime companion Negan and the Saviors need.
Born and raised in Calgary, Alberta, Canada, Steven Ogg made his acting debut at age seven when he performed in drag as Betty Boop at the Kiwanis Festival. Ogg continued to act in many local theatre productions until he made his film debut at the age of 10 with in the National Film Board of Canada’s The Red Dress.
Ogg’s curiosity and diverse passions led him on many adventures, playing volleyball in both the Canada Summer Games and with the national champions the University of Calgary Dinosaurs before beginning his Dostoevsky-Buster Keaton travels. Ogg made his way through Toronto, Vancouver, Montreal, Milan, London, and Paris until he eventually landed in New York. With little money, no working papers, and knowing only a few people, Ogg continued his pursuit of acting.
By the 2000s, Ogg had appeared in such notable NYC series such as One Life to Live, Law & Order and Third Watch. His career as a commercial and voiceover actor then quickly took off. This landed Ogg in the role of Trevor Phillips in Grand Theft Auto V and as Old Spice’s self-proclaimed King of Products, Bob Giovanni.
Ogg’s more recent television credits include memorable roles in AMC’s Better Call Saul, Comedy Central's Broad City, and will a return as Rebus in the second season of HBO's Westworld. Ogg can also be seen in the new season of IFC's Stan Against Evil, opposite John C. McGinley, and as the lead in the upcoming sci-fi feature Solis.
