‘The Walking Dead’ star, Sonequa Martin-Green, joins ‘Once Upon A Time’ cast

One of the cast members from “The Walking Dead” has another gig, landing a role on ABC’s fairy tale series.

Tuesday the reports were released that Sonequa Martin-Green has reportedly been cast as a mystery character named Tamara on the ABC series Once Upon A Time.

The character is described as “charming and likable woman who’s secretly highly ambitious and a fearless leader driven to get what she wants.”

Martin-Green plays Sasha, the sister of popular comic book character Tyreese, who is the member of the prison group whose life is in danger. Sasha made her debut on the mid-season finale of AMC’s zombie drama.

Since Sonequa has signed on for a new role already, there may be a lot of fan speculation that her character won’t last long on The Walking Dead. However, plenty of actors and actresses star on multiple TV series at the same time, so this casting news isn’t necessarily a death sentence for Sasha.
