One of the stars of “The Walking Dead” has landed the lead role in a TV series that has been getting a lot of buzz. The Hollywood Reporter’s Live Feed reports that Sonequa Martin-Green, who plays Sasha Williams on “Walking Dead,” is set for the starring role on CBS’s “Star Trek: Discovery.”
“Martin-Green — who will continue to portray fierce survivor Sasha on ‘Walking Dead’ as a series regular — will play a lieutenant commander on ‘Discovery,'” THR reports. “It’s also worth noting that ‘Walking Dead’ has already wrapped production on its current seventh season and, should Martin-Green’s Sasha survive, wouldn’t return to production until summer 2017.”
The “Star Trek” reboot will air on the CBS All Access streaming service.
