When you're hot, you're hot. 

And newbie starlet Sonequa Martin-Green is quickly climbing her way in to the TV stables these days, signing on this week to play recurring character Tamara on "Once Upon a Time" in a recurring role -- right on the heels of her first turn as Sasha on "The Walking Dead."

Bing: More on Sonequa Martin-Green | "The Walking Dead" | "Once Upon A Time"

According to, Martin-Green, whose credits also include "The Good Wife," "Gossip Girl" and "Army Wives," will appear in multiple episodes on Season 2 of "Once Upon a Time" -- and her role may extend into Season 3 as well. Not much information is available yet on who Tamara will be, but casting news had noted that the show was looking to feature an actress with a British accent. 

Right before the winter hiatus, Martin-Green debuted on "Dead" as Sasha, Tyreese's sister and the leader of a new band of survivors -- a role that will become important in the second half of Season 3. "The Walking Dead" returns with new episodes beginning Sunday, Feb. 10.

"Once Upon a Time" airs Sundays at 8 p.m. ET/PT on ABC. 

I would harldly call her a starlet. I've never heard of her til I read this. On the season 3 mid-finale, she was on the screen for about 12 seconds of the whole show. STAR POWER!  WOOOOH!!
