Meet Sonequa Martin-Green, the First African American Woman to Land Leading Role in a Star Trek TV Series

The Walking Dead star Sonequa Martin-Green has reportedly landed the lead role in the new Star Trek TV series.

If confirmed, the 31-year-old will be the first African-American female to be the main character in the hit franchise.

US publication Entertainment Weekly has reported the news, but Sonequa and CBS Television Studios, who are making Star Trek: Discovery, are yet to comment.


LEADING LADY: Sonequa Martin-Green

She is believed to be playing a lieutenant commander on the show, which will make this the first time a Star Trek show hasn’t focused on a starship captain.

It is unclear whether the new gig gives a potential glimpse into the fate of her character on The Walking Dead.

Star Trek: Discovery will also include the series’ first openly gay character, a fellow lieutenant played by Anthony Rapp.
