Sonequa Martin-Green, looking like a young Angela Bassett, showing some acting chops and having a good ass agent has parlayed into roles on two of the most high profile shows on television, The Walking Dead and Once Upon A Time.  

On The Walking Dead, she is Sasha, the sister to Tyreese and, seeing that her character wasn’t  in the original comic that the show is based upon and she really doesn’t have much to do except stand around and look exhausted  I have a feeling she’s not long for that world

She is much better on Once Upon A Time in the role of Tamara, a mysterious (bad) woman on the hunt for magic in the world and hitting the jackpot in a major way.
