Smashing Interviews Magazine recently spoke with Michael Rooker about Yondu, new projects and what it’s like to be a graddaddy.
“There’s some Merle in Yondu, and obviously a little bit of Yondu in Merle, too. Mr. Gunn wrote the role for me, and he wrote in the combination of these characters. Yondu, myself and Merle sort of make up the full character of Yondu. Then you find things as you go along. You find interesting characteristics that you decide you want to show off a little more and some you want to cut back on.”
