According to TVLine.com, 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.
