Tamara has a tumbleblog now. No idea how long it'll last considering her status, but I thought it was interesting that there already people supporting her.

[livejournal.com profile] jaeliyah: Thoughts? Mostly, I'm just heaving a disappointed sigh that the Snow White heroine apparently needs another PoC foil. I know it could be a red herring, but it's not like Once Upon a Time is known for subtlety. Also, that super questionable hashtag is less a reference to Tamara than to Snow White's latest storyline, but it was brought up in the comments and has since been changed to #DarkHeart.

So, did anything ever come of that "Tamara" character on "Once Upon a Time"? No one I can find on that POS version of the tag search seems to be even talking about her much less screencaping or .gif'ing her on tumblr. I figure she's not Tiana, but I'm still interested all the same. And this can answered by anyone who's watched the show, btw.

Scoop: Once Upon a Time Casts Walking Dead Actress — But Who Is She Playing?



Once Upon a Time is adding Sonequa Martin-Green to its ranks for Season 2 — if not beyond.

TVLine has learned that the actress, whose TV credits include The Walking Dead and The Good Wife, will appear this season in multiple episodes as Tamara. No further details on the character were made available, though TVLine’s previous intel indicates that Once was initially angling to cast an African-American with a British accent in the part, and that Tamara could spill over into Season 3 of the ABC drama.

Martin-Green recently debuted on The Walking Dead, just before the hiatus, as Sasha, one of the prison newcomers Carl sequestered from his group. On The Good Wife, she enjoyed a run as Courtney, the assistant Alicia poached from Martha Plimpton’s Patti Nyholm. She also played Army Wives‘ Kanessa. SOURCE: 1, 2, 3

SO, I'VE long since stopped watching Once Upon a Time as to further prevent the death of precious brain cells via a onset of tedium, mediocre writing and acting. However, this little anecdote has a certain POC Disney fandom in a tizzy and though I doubt anything will actually ever come from it, it'll be interesting to see how this turns out as the character is a Woman of Color, presumably with a reoccurring role status.

Info's behind the cut.

Let's countdown the episodes before their death, shall we? )
